'We give you cash, you give us Corfu!' German MPs suggest ... 'And the Acropolis'

Well, if a former Greek minister thought about securitising the Parthenon ... Given that securitisation now has such a bad reputation, someone was going to suggest an outright sale! (And if the sale were to go through - unlikely as that is - would the Germans next demand the 'return' of the Elgin Marbles?!?).

  1. Well, you know, as they rightfully say in Germany: Wer den Schaden hat, braucht für den Spott nicht zu sorgen. ("Those with the damage/injury need not arrange for the ridicule.") The sarcasm is understandable (and legitimate).

  4. ¿¿ASHAMED??? NO, NO, NO...HAY MUCHA HIPOCRESÍA E IGNORANCIA SOBRE ESTE TEMA.I'M SPANISH -IT DOESN'T MATTER I KNOW- BUT I THINK THAT THE PIECES KNOWN AS "THE ELGIN MARBLES" (BY THE WAY, LORD ELGIN WAS SCOTTISH,SOMETHING THAT KNEW LORD BYRON,-I PUT ASIDE THE NASTY NOSE-ISSUE)MUST REMAIN WHERE THEY'RE NOW:IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM.AND IF THE 80% OF THE ENGLISH POPULATION BELIEVES IN THE RETURN OF THE MARBLES!!!! THAT DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING TO ME..A SIMILAR NUMBER OF ENGLISH POPULATION, STATISTICALLY!!! CLAIMS THAT THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION ISN'T ENOUGH TO EXPLAIN OUR EXISTENCE....

I do not moderate comments, but I remove spam, overt self-promotion ("read [link] my much better post on this") and what I consider hate speech (racism, homophobia etc).
