Pigeons bad for the health

Supreme Court lawyer Yiannis Kinias sent us this photograph of a sign on Oxford Street in London, which explains why our friends and allies the British won’t give us back the Parthenon Marbles. Kinias wrote: «In recognition of the sensitivity you have shown for social issues, let me tell you about a recent experience that made a great impression on me, about how the City of Westminister, Britain’s first municipality, deals with our friends the pigeons. Walking down busy Oxford Street I was astonished to see a sign erected by the City of Westminster saying that too many pigeons are bad for the health… I send a picture of the sign so that your readers can see how our friends and allies the English – who will not allow the Parthenon Marbles to return to the place where they belong – treat sensitive issues that are an indication of one’s culture and education.»
