The new wife of Hollywood star George Clooney, lawyer Amal Clooney, has had talks with Greek PM Antonis Samaras as part of a campaign to return the Parthenon sculptures from Britain. Greece has hired her London law firm to ramp up its claim to the sculptures. The 5th Century BC treasures, known as the Elgin Marbles in the UK, are kept in the British Museum in London. Fellow lawyer Norman Palmer said he hoped a "conciliatory and amicable resolution" could be found. "If it cannot, then other considerations will have to be examined," he added.THERE IS SIMPLE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM:
BUILD A NEW BRANCH OF THE BRITISH MUSEUM IN ATHENS.
MANY MUSEUMS HAVE BRANCHES ALL OVER THE WORLD.
CALL IT THE "BRITISH MUSEUM OF ATHENS".
MOVE THE MARBLES THERE.
BRITAIN MAINTAINS "OWNERSHIP" AND GREECE GETS THEM BACK.
IT'S A WIN-WIN.
A SOLUTION SO SIMPLE NO "INTELLECTUAL" COULD THINK OF IT.
