6 million see it every year.
It is a major attraction site.
It has been UK who has protected, paid millions and millions for the upkeep and restoration of these marbles.
And it will set a precedent for every Museum in the world and especially ours. We have many priceless arts which was obtained in similar ways, we paid for them. It is ours
Imagine if a country can just say 'we want this priceless art back because we have moral ground not legal'. Absolute BS. That is not how it works.
You keep moral ground, we'll keep the art.
Oh and what next?
We will return Ethiopia's crown? Benzin bronzes? Cypriot Mosaics? How about the priceless artefacts colonies looted from Africa hundreds of years ago? How far back will we go? The British Crown Jewels does not originally come from UK, Do we hand that back? How about every other country in the world. Will they start going back hundreds/thousands of years to hand back objects?
What about the Aborigini bones that date back thousands of years? KohiNoor Diamond?
