The leader of the Liberal Democrats Nick Clegg, who is seen as a “Europhile” is one of the strong supporters of returning the Elgin Marbles back in Greece, as UK Express writes. The newspapers adds “As an MEP, the Lib Dem leader  berated the British Museum for guarding the statues, saying it was like displaying Big Ben’s clock in the Louvre. He told a Tory MEP who dared to criticise his campaign: “you appear to have lost your marbles.

Clegg, who is leader of the Liberal Democrats since 2007, is married to a Spaniard and was a Euro MP for the East Midlands between 1999 and 2004. In 2002, he helped organise the Marbles In Exile conference in the Strasbourg parliament where he demanded Britain return them to the Parthenon in Athens.
