Egypt's treasures are looted – "lucky all the best stuff is safely in Bloomsbury"

"Egypt's treasures are looted – lucky all the best stuff is safely in Bloomsbury" writes in the Telegraph a British "journalist and social commentator who specialises in politics, religion and low culture". The article is accompanied by a picture of the sawn-off and heavily wire-brushed Parthenon marbles "safe" in Bloomsbury, just an Egyptian Molotov-cocktail-throw away from the offices of the Portable Antiquities Scheme which can't quite seem to get to grips with stopping the British artefact hunters and collectors looting archaeological sites in their own country as a source of collectables. Most of those objects are not "safe in Bloomsbury", many are on eBay.
