Guardian article about the Parthenon Marbles


Of course it is an event when a UK-based newspaper writes an article about the Acropolis museum and the return of the Parthenon marbles. Subtle as it may be there is that ever-present air of superiority and smugness in the writing and naturally in the oh-so-clever title. There is a semblance of balance or at least an attempt but in my view the key message is that they are not coming back.. these Marbles are not being returned by the British Museum, not now or any time soon. It is a shame really just goes to show that there are very few surprises when it comes to international relations!
