Interestingly the Brexit negotiations are getting battered by every EU country that has a grudge against us, and Greece is now getting its oar in, by wanting back the Elgin marbles taken from the pantheon, sold to the UK in 1816.

The British museum says no, as this would be a precedent for all other countries to ask for everything back from UK museums.

I say Boris should allow Greece to get the marbles back as a one off deal, but with the proviso the EU should pay us for them, at our divorce costs to leave the EU of 39 Billion pounds, so the two payments cancel each other out, so that we pay nothing :D

The EU will tell Britain to give back the ancient Parthenon Marbles, taken from Greece over 200 years ago, if it wants a post-Brexit trade deal

Tell them they can shove their marbles. They can have 'em back for £39bn plus the storage costs, which must be getting on for another £39bn. The EU can pay us and debit Greece's account with the money.
