Tony Blair has congratulated the European Union on winning the Nobel Peace Prize:
The European Union is one of the defining concepts of the last half century.
Amidst the turmoil of today we would do well to remember that when the Second World War ended Europe was in ruins.
What followed has been over 50 years of peace and progress.
The rationale for Europe today has changed but the ideal of a Europe united and working together remains constant.
