Malala Yusufzai

Richard Dawkins, Mala Yusufzai and the Nobel Peace prize.

I am posting this a good few months late, but better late than never eh?

A few months ago there was a twitterstorm after Richard Dawkins made the following tweet:

All the world's Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though.

Naturally many people jumped up in outrage at this. Others jumped up agreeing with him.

Most debate was about how current political situation impacts on the nobel prizes being given out. Not much was on how they are given out.
