  1. Your thoughts on the FALKLANDS are mirrored in ths article too http://blogs.ft.com/the-world/2012/01/britain-and-the-elgin-marbles-of-argentine-diplomacy/#axzz1lazHCA7h

    And indeed the reunificatuon of the Parthenon Sculptures deserves to happen because they are a peerless work of art that deserves to be reunited, to be seen as a whole story.

    To remember the late Christopher Hitchens after he had visited the new Acropolis Museum for the opening in June 2009: 'it creates a natural thirst to see the actual re-assembly completed. So,far from emptying or weakening a museum, this controversy has instead created another one,which is destined to be among Europe's finest galleries. And one day, surely, there will be an agreement to do the right thing by the world's most "right" structure.'
