    I agree with UK on this, we shouldn't return it.
    Possession is nine-tenths of the law, we bought it fair and square.
    It was my understanding that these objects were stolen by way of stepping disk by Nessus the Puppeteer so he could gift them to Nike upon whom he had a crush.

    Re: Greek marbles

    I think that the Greeks should take their marbles and go home.

    Seriosly the Elgin marbles are the rocks of Greek antiquity and they belong to Greece so return them to where they belong.

    The question of ownership and who legally it should be in the hands of is still there no matter how many museums they buy or build.

    So they should go to Greece just because it once hundreds of years ago belonged to greece?

    Great, using that logic i wonder if it works on land because NA will sure have a tight case ...

    This has nothing to do with Empire and everything to do with Art. There is a big difference.

    2,109 persons in 198 UK locations
    UK Population: Just almost 61 million ...

    Proper surveys if you please that are representative and is a substantial percentage in comparison to the population.

    Don't try and bring up external cases for this one. UK stole none of these marbles, we bought and purchased them fair and square.

    Almost all my life.
    My Grandfather was part of the British Army as was my Dad and now my Brother. 3 generations. What does being a citizen of UK entail? Carrying a British passport? Having family who have served the country? Observing and following the laws? Being born here? Being loyal to UK? Contributing to the society?

    What is your point and how does it connect to the Elgin Marbles?
