Elgin Marbles

My friends in Greece have emailed me to ask if I’ll sign up to their campaign to return the Elgin Marbles to Athens, now that they have a beautiful new museum in which to house them. They’ve sent a clever little video inviting us Brits to imagine our indignation if the Greeks had made off with Big Ben and refused to give it back. Personally I couldn’t give a **** if they nicked Big Ben but I would be upset if they asked me to give back Rex, the Greek dog that I bought into the UK last summer after he’d been run-over and left to die in the gutter.
