    Maybe the Germans could, you know, look to give some of the stuff back - assuming they have not burnt it all?

    Someone seems to already have lost their marbles....
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Lots of the stolen Nazi art has been returned and some still is in the process of being returned, but not made easy by fighting relatives who all claim they are the lawful heirs. Stolen artifacts by the British empire however stay where they are (for the moment)

    We bought them all in the gift shop, fair and square. We can't remember where we put the receipts though...
