A lot has been written already about the reaction by the Greeks to the snubbing of their Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis by Rishi Sunak. An official visit to the UK to discuss all sorts of of issues ostensibly went wrong as No10 claimed that the public raising by the Greek Pm in a BBC interview of the wish to see the Parthenon marbles , currently languishing in the British Museum returned to their rightful owners- i.e. the Greeks as they see it- contravened prior agreements the two sides had made not to do so.
