A fitting prize; You Say

IT''S not often I agree with anything the EU does but for once I applaud them for awarding the Sakharov human rights prize to Pakistani schoolgirl and campaigner Malala Yousafzai.

The 16-year-old, who was shot in the head by the Taliban a year ago for campaigning for better rights for girls, truly deserves the award.

The EU is good at chucking away money as if it''s going out of fashion but I do not begrudge a penny of the PS42,300 award to this brave school girl.

It is right, as the European People''s Party leader Joseph Daul said, that "our hope for a better future stands in young people like Malala Yousafzai".
