    Re: Greece demands UK return Elgin marbles

    Nothing else of value to add?

    So apart from this fictitious argument of 'morality' on possessions, is there any other ground Greece has for the marbles? No legal basis? Isn't that a shame

    Answer my question.

    Apart from this bull**** moral idea you have wheeled out, what legal basis does Greece have for the possession of the marbles in comparison to the British Museum.

    LEGAL basis if you please.

    Are you incapable of staying on topic?

    There are a number of off topic threads on this forum.

    I asked you a very simple question. What legal basis does Greece have for the Elgin Marbles in comparison to the British? Kindly answer my question or don't but do not ruin my thread by pointless posts.

    The new Acropolis Museum will resolve this.

    Go back and read my posts, I stated for me it is not a question of legality

    How will a new Museum resolve the legal dispute over ownership?
    Which is why this conversation is pointless.

    This world and the art posessions does not rule on this idea of "Morality". It runs on the law and the law is not on the Greeks side. Those are facts. We should never give them up, we should loan them sure. But not give them back. This is not a charity. The same for Rosetta Stone. They are staying in Britain and the Kohinoor diamonds.

    The British Museum contains some of the greatest displays of civilizations and humanities achievements and development in the world. Artifacts from across the world is assimilated into a single building and accessible for free to anyone who wish to view them

    More people enjoy it in the British Museum amid other priceless arts than they would if they were returned to Greece.

    So for me, we should never give it back. They won't get it back no matter how much "pressure" they try on UK. They should be thanking UK, It would have been destroyed if it wasn't taken away ... not to mention Britain played a role in their independence.

    Edit: Oh and i wonder if Greece will hand back many of the priceless artefacts it has from Egypt in its ownership - It is not "morally" theirs right? ....

    I agree with UK on this, we shouldn't return it.
    Possession is nine-tenths of the law, we bought it fair and square.
    As occupiers the Ottomans had no right to sell it. Looting art is illegal under the laws of war, so too, is knowingly purchasing looted art.
