    Bid To Give Jackson The Nobel Peace Prize


    The late star's fans have flocked to sign online petitions supporting the move.

    They say he should be honoured for his charity work and "lifelong dedication to the well being of humanity".

    So far, more than 2,000 people have added their names to the campaign started by Los Angeles student Anneliese Nichole Brown.

    She hopes 100,000 will lend their support for the Thriller singer who died on June 25.

    A similar petition has been signed by 10,000 fans.

    News of the campaign is spreading virally online on sites such as Twitter.

    However, nominations for the peace prize are not made according to public demand.

    Members of governments, professors, and former winners of the prize are among those who can suggest names.

    The campaign would need to win the support of someone eligible to nominate to get the musician's name in the running.

    Submissions start in September and the name is then announced the following October.

    If the star did make the shortlist but he did not win, fans would have to wait a long time to find out - as the names of unsuccessful candidates are not revealed for 50 years.

    Former winners of the prize include Nelson Mandela, Al Gore and Jimmy Carter.
  2. although dubious people have got it in the pass and will continue to collect it.

    jacko can jog on.

    not much charity work
    not put himself at any sort of risk
    not achieved anything useful on the world stage re peace/politics
    several hundred million dollars could have not a lot of good rather than spending it on tat

    Some kids will be at peace now the kiddie fiddler is at his 'peace'.
  4. A Google search shows that he has actually donated a fair bit of cash to charities, though how much was charity and how much was egotism could be up for debate.

    One of his donations lead to the creation of the "Michael Jackson International Institute for Research On Child Abuse".

    Research. Must remember that term if ever anyone searches through my computer's hard drives....
  5. Get-to-****! What did that chod do for world peace?
  6. Gary Glitter's charity funded 'clinic for sh1t box reconstruction' may warrant recognition on a world wide stage finally.
  7. Let's just tick off one or two of his achievements shall we?

    Furthering black rights, spokesman for the Afro American community ... er no.

    Furthering children's rights ..... er no.

    Donated to charity to reduce tax burden .....Yes.

    Made a shitload of money out of his records ...... Yes

    Worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize? ...... Before Robert Mugabe but only just.
  8. Nobel prizes can only be awarded to living persons, so the fans can petition all they want, he’s not going to get it.
  9. Apart from the shere stupidity of the whole nomination due to the person they wish to nominate, they haven't even done any homework on it, unbelievable! There again, look at that, an edumacated mutton stew served with beetroot! ;)

    (just like my Mum used to make)
  10. Here's hoping Osama Bin Laden gets bumped off before he qualifies
  11. [quote="DesktopCommando] According to the report: News of the campaign is spreading virally online on sites such as Twitter.[/quote]

    No it isn't; nothing on The Noseless One in the top 100 trending Twitter topics in last 48 hours (It's sad I even know how to check this....). Once again, Sky News ("We make shite up; you believe it") are not letting reality get in the way of a good story.

    Lots on The Jonas Brothers though ("A popular and youthful musical beat combo, I understand, M'Lud..."), although regrettably they are all still alive. But one did just break up with his girlfriend - maybe.
  12. Or Adams and Mcguinness!

    Edited to add; Not that far fetched when you think that former terrorists to have won include Yasser Arafat and Nelson Mandela.

    As well as Henry Kissinger who ordered a region bombed back to the Stone Age.
  13. Adams was most dischuffed at not being made a medallist some time ago; there were stories going about (put out by PSF) that the Bruddish Govm'nt had put in a veto - far more likely that the Irish had, but that's by the by.

    You'd have though that Jackson's devotion to equality of skin pigmentation and shape of nose/lips etc would have stood him in good stead with the Swedish Chefs. Bloody racists.
  14. Now if they’d nominated him for the Pieces Prize that would be different. He was certainly made up from a lot of them, many of them Lego.

    There are around 200 nominations every year. The nominee list used to be kept secret, but since it was opened up it’s become almost like a version of The X Factor. The only good result is that we can see who’s been nominated this time and become suitably outraged. 8O

    Bono, anyone? :wink:
  15. Didn't Herr Schickelgruber make it as a nominee? Jocko would be in good company were it so.
