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.
Someone neds to tell the Bits that heir empire is kapput...

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

You really should do your homework
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
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?
