Britain's argument  was that It was safekeeping the artifacts because Greece did not have adequate resources to properly maintain them, and there was a time that this argument might have had some merit. 

The wife and me were in greece on vacation a couple of years ago and had the occasion to visit the new Acropolis museum,. A better facility does not exist anywhere in the world .

That argument no longer holds water so now they are arguing that they were legally purchased from the Ottomans. If they really believe this I have a bridge to sell them. 

you can keep the bridge,its worth less now as you made it shorter and sold of small pieces of the rest of the stones to tourists..lol

They were stolen and should be returned to Greece, however it is nonsense for their return to form part of any trade deal. 

No doubt the Spanish will additionally throw in the return of Gibralter while we are at it. That was presumably 'stolen' as well.

The Brits are going to lose Gibraltar, the Elgin Marbles, and their offshore tax evasion center, the Cayman Islands, has already been blacklisted by the EU.  Other tax havens to follow no doubt.  Nice work, Boris.

And the EU will surrender Luxembourg.

Well, other avenues were tried for 30 years

They didn't work.
