A short break in ancient Athens

Fri, 12 May 2017; 10:56

On a crisp spring afternoon my 16-year-old son Ned and I left the Acropolis, strode through the Agora, and headed down the remains of the Panathenaic Way towards Piraeus and beyond in the footsteps of so many legendary Athenians. Every now and then modernity intervened: a railway track has long since sliced off a slither of the Agora; a few hawkers lined the upper reaches of the ancient road. But […]

Can Athens become Europe’s new arts capital?

Thu, 11 May 2017; 19:08

Earlier this year, the British artist Michael Landy was dining outside at a restaurant in the Athens neighbourhood of Exarcheia – where the streets, home to anarchists, are thick with graffiti – when he was tear-gassed. “One moment, I was enjoying some vegetarian food,” he recalls. “The next, there were all these guys with masks and wheelie bins, and a riot was taking place. It came out of nowhere.” Concerned […]

Τι ισχύει για την απόκτηση κάρτας μόνιμης διαμονής και βρετανικής υπηκοότητας

Mon, 24 Apr 2017; 16:04

Καθώς η βρετανική κυβέρνηση ετοιμάζεται να μαζέψει τα μπογαλάκια της και να φύγει από την Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση, ένα μεγάλο ερωτηματικό αιωρείται όσον αφορά τη μεταχείριση που θα έχουν οι Ευρωπαίοι πολίτες που ζουν και εργάζονται ή σπουδάζουν στη χώρα μετά από το Brexit. Η Βρετανίδα Πρωθυπουργός και μετέπειτα η Βουλή των Κοινοτήτων αρνήθηκαν να συμπεριλάβουν στο νομοσχέδιο για την ενεργοποίηση του Άρθρου 50 μία τροπολογία που ζητήθηκε από τη Βουλή […]

Let’s do a Brexit deal with the Parthenon marbles

Tue, 4 Apr 2017; 11:22

… Now is the time to offer to return them, as part of the Brexit deal. No one yet seems to have noticed the binding obligations on EU states and their negotiators, and on the UK (which remains a member state until it leaves) imposed by the EU treaty itself. article 3 sets down the duty to enhance Europe’s cultural heritage (obviously achievable by reuniting the marbles) and article 167 […]

Firebombs, fines and fixes – welcome to football in Cyprus

Fri, 3 Mar 2017; 12:47

Omonia president Antonis Tzionis sits quietly in his chair in the offices of the Cypriot club. Although not naturally a quiet man, he knows that a word out of place could cost him another €5,000. In December he made the claim that Cypriot football was “dishonest” and dogged by “filth, stench, nepotism, cronyism and corruption”. The game, said Tzionis, was controlled by betting activity and corruption, and there is no […]
