You know me: I like to think outside the box. So try this one on for size. Compare and contrast:
BBC: Greece bailout: Large protests expected against cuts
Greece is braced for large protests against further budget cuts, following a 130bn-euro (£110bn; $170bn) bailout deal aimed at avoiding bankruptcy.
BBC: UK public finances in biggest surplus for four years
The government received more money than it spent in January leaving it with its highest monthly surplus in four years.
In summary, Greece is utterly broke, and we have money going spare. So here's my modest proposal…
Everyone is happy. It's a win-win-win-win-win situation:
- the Greeks get some much-needed money;
- the Elgin Marbles are returned to the Parthenon (the Greeks have been banging on about that for years);
- the Parthenon is finally protected from acid rain by being placed indoors;
- we get a new tourist attraction;
- the British Museum frees up an entire gallery, thereby enabling it to display yet more plundered treasure.
Sometimes, I impress even myself. I bet even Prof. Alice Roberts would have struggled to come up with that one.
I'm a one-man think-tank, me.
