An interesting choice. I've always liked his work, and his stature certainly warrants it... his support of Amnesty International and outspoken criticism of Bush and Blair may well suggest it to be another "one in the eye for Bush" like last year's (? or was it the year before's, I can't remember) peace prize to Jimmy Carter. Heh. If so, more power to them, I say! As long as he doesn't do something grumpy like turn it down.
