Hi! So, I have launched a petition and I wondered if any of my lovely watchers would help me out and sign it (if you support my cause, that is!) !
After a recent visit to Greece, I became more firmly convinced than ever before that the Elgin Marbles, currently held in the British Museum, should be returned to Athens and I have set up a petition to this end.
To put those who don't know in the picture, about two hundred years ago Lord Elgin stole many of the finest artistic treasures from Greece's most important historical and cultural site, the Acropolis. These included the pediment sculptures from the Parthenon and one of the caryatids from the Erechtheion. These treasures, having been taken back to Britain, were then sold to the British Museum, where they still reside today despite endless campaigning by the Greek people and the fact that Athens has a truly exceptional museum in which to house them.
Please, for the sake of justice and the Greek people, consider signing my petition, aimed at David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband. Together, I hope that we may live to see the day when these special sculptures are returned to their rightful home!
If you would like to sign, here's a link - thank you in advance !
