We know what country they belong to.

We know exactly where they came from.

If we return them to Greece then UK taxpayers don't need to pay display costs, upkeep, maintenance and staffing costs.

Plus we wouldn't have the International Cringe Factor of still justifying keeping them. Like some rich German with some former Jewish-Owned Paintings looted from the Warsaw Ghetto. It is just embarassing and makes some of us feel bad when we bump into Greek friends and they ask...

Also if we keep up this pantomime any longer, the Greek people could probably just take the UK to The International Court and have them forcibly retrieved and returned by some EU Antiquities Theft Enforcement Police.

I went to see them about thirty years ago and they are a bit knocked about. Like they have been through the wars.
