There's disquiet that Malala Yousafzai (above), the schoolgirl shot by the Taliban has missed out on the Nobel peace prize. Malala is indeed courageous and inspirational. But she is also only 16. She has survived a nightmare attack. Her whole family has had to move to the other side of the world. She is still under threat. So surely what she needs most is a couple of years away from the spotlight. For Malala – the real prize? Peace to be young and free.
