You must be as frustrated as me about the EU negotiations.
The Divorce Bill seems the main sticking point.
Please tell David Davies to move this along.... Here are some Urgent Questions for him to ask the EU. The 3 Stumbling Barriers to the Negotiations which must be resolved NOW.
The UK and the EU need answers to speed up further discussions.
1 - THE DIVORCE BILL
What Share of EU Assets does the UK own ?
What sum of money does the UK have to pay legally up to leaving date 2019 ?
What share of EU Loans to Member States does the UK own ?
What does the EU expect the UK to pay and what is the Justification ?
The UK cannot pay forever into the EU Pensions . What is the gap between what the UK will pay and what the EU want the UK to pay. ?
Surely, David Davies can get answers to these questions.
Concentrate on the Divorce Bill otherwise we are talking to a brick wall and the Conservatives will get the blame.
2 - THE IRISH BORDER
A - Allow free trade between Eire and Northern Ireland as at present
B - Tighten up Passport Control Checks for visitors from Northern Ireland to the UK.
C - Only short term entry for EU citizens who enter the UK via Northern Ireland.
D - Free Trade from Northern Ireland and Eire IF the EU reach an early Free Trade deal with the UK.
3 - CITIZENS RIGHTS IN THE UK AND EU POST BREXIT
A - No change for British Citizens living in the EU.
B - No change for EU citizens living in the UK.
C - Drop the plan that they must reapply for Permit to Remain in the UK or EU. Not necessary.
I am only an ordinary UK citizens. Negotiator Rt.Hon.David Davies MP has an army of civil servants. Revise the Priorities in the talks. Discuss the Divorce Bill NOW as the EU want. Otherwise, the UK will spend many more months in deadlock. The UK have a very strong position when it comes to trade talks, later on in the Negotiations.
Be grateful that you are not famous. Be thankful that you are not a Celebrity ! You may not have their money but you can be very happy with your normal life.
You can go about work and love your Family without being hounded by The Media.
You will not have to mix with Celebrities who take drugs. Some of them die as a result of drug addiction.
Most of the Celebrities are so vain. You can be yourself. You don't have to satisfy the wishes of your Fans.
Some famous Celebrities are only good at Singing or Acting. That is it. You probably have many other talents. Know yourself as the Greeks said years ago.
Encourage your Children and Grandchildren to live their lives to the full. Too many young people say..." I want to be a famous singer. It will change my life. " so do thousands of other young people think that. Look at the thousands of people who turn up for X Factor auditions. It semis to be TV viewing to see the hopes of most them crushed. They see Singing as an easy way our. They think it will bring happiness.
It may not. There are one or two Winners. The rest sink into oblivion.. shattered, disappointed, depressed. Wha a pity !
Consider how many Celebrities get divorced.
Consider how many Celebrities die young
Consider how many Celebrities have Breakdowns because they crack from the pressures of Being a Star.
Remember the old saying.... " Money does not buy Happiness. "
It is true today.
Remember that " You cannot buy Health. " Many so called Celebrities lose their health at an early age because of the stress of touring, concerts, deadlines and some disappointments. Heroin, Cocaine and Crack Cocaine abuse In Britain Today costs the NHS £Billions. I am not saying that Celebrities are responsible for all these abuses. However, the record is full of Celebrity deaths from Drugs - the stupid people. Chasing Celebrity status will mix you with all these dangers. You may survive - I hope so - but you will be in danger mixing with the Celebrity clique. Think strongly about this.
You can be very happy from being an ordinary Citizen. Life has more to offer than being famous. Volunteers get great satisfaction from the unpaid work they do. Low paid Nurses in The NHS want to serve humanity. Not for Profit organisation are full of decent people who are motivated by the will to serve - they are the Givers not the Takers of this World - the Salt of the World. I have nothing but respect for them.
I am glad that I am not a Celebrity. I am what I am and I have no regrets.
I suggest that you tell your children and Grandchildren about this article. It may be a big turning point in their young. lives. Their future may be bright without being a Celebrity.

The COUNTRYSIDE V THE LEAGUE AGAINST CRUELTY TO ANIMALS.
If there was one emotive subject In Britain Today, it is the one about Hunting.
However, there is so much misunderstanding about the situation.
People on both sides and in Parliament are passionate about the Pros and Cons about Hunting.
I am a Candidate for The National Trust Council Elections - Voting ends online this Friday 13 October 2017.
A Motion has been submitted for the AGM on 21 October, to ban Trail Hunting on National Trust Land. It is opposed by The Trustees of The National Trust. I would not like to predict the outcome.
My views can be summarised as follows:
We must obey the Law.
Currently Blood Sport Hunting is illegal.
The issue is therefore about Trail Hunting. This is when a sensory Trail is laid in the countryside. Hunters and packs of dogs follow the trail. There are no blood Hunting involved.
Providing there is no abuse, this is permitted. I am not against this in principle. So, Countryside Alliance, you have my support, if you do not break the Law, no abuse, no breach of The National Trust Licence.
On the other hand, League against Cruelty to Animals, I support your aims, I am against Blood sports of any kind. Surely, if the National Trust Trustees and Members vote to reject your Motion,
You must accept the verdict but, remain vigilant. I will ensure that the National Trust does, if I am elected.
However, the League against Cruel Sports say that there are abuses. Also, this should not be allowed. I have no means of checking the abuses. I do not think that the Trustees would lie about abuses.
So, a very emotive subject which can be resolved by vigilance from The League and respect to the Licences and no abuse.
Finally, the result of the Motion should be respected. If not, we will have bad feeling in the National Trust and chaos.
Prime Minister Theresa May MP apologised to The Conservative Party Conference 2017 because she lost seats in the General Election.
She did not have to apologise. SHE IS iNNOCENT.
The Conservative Party won the Election but lost their majority because The Labour Party and their Leader Jeremy Corbyn misled the Electorate big time - and the Students and other supporters believed Labour.
Why was this ? Because ordinary people in Britain are fed up with Austerity and they liked the Labour Promises which were built on SAND !
Students and future students liked the idea of no University charges. Great - lets vote for Labour.
They could not care less that the Conservatives had to balance the books and reduce the high interest on the National Debt.
So, The thousands of Students voted Labour.
The sequel after the Election - Labour denied saying they would abolish University Fees.
Theresa May told the truth - Labour lied.
OK what next ? People liked the promise of more social housing fro Labour.
More votes for Labour.
However, no mention from Labour....How ?
Theresa May told the truth about what could actually be afforded. But, many people did not want to listen.
Labour then promised Nationalisation will return. The people believed him.
The Conservatives remembered the turmoil last time Railways and the Utilities were State run. Chaos.
But, many people did not want to know about the past. Many were too young.
And so it goes on. Labour offering goodies. Conservatives being realistic. But, people did not want to know.
THE BIG LESSON
From now on, start offering Goodies. Here are my suggestions.......
1 - LOWER INHERITANCE TAXES.
2 - BUILD MORE SOCIAL HOUSING.
3 - CARE COSTS TO BE LIMITED TO £50,000 MAXIMUM IN TOTAL.
4 - INJECT ANOTHER £10 BILLIONS INTO THE NHS.
5 - CONSIDER QUANTITATIVE EASING LIKE WAS MADE FOR BANK SURVIVAL
6 - SPEED UP BREXIT
7 - SHOW LABOUR POLICIES TO BE FALSE
8 -STOP IN FIGHTING. BACK THERESA MAY. SHE IS A VERY GOOD PRIME MINISTER
9 -INCREASE TAX ALLOWANCES TO £15,000 in 2019.
10 - LAUNCH AN INTERIM MANIFESTO WITH ALL THE GOODIES.
11 - OUTWIT LABOUR.
12 - STOP PERSONAL ATTACKS ON CORBYN. CONCENTRATE ON CONSERVATIVE GOODIES. ATTRACT LABOUR VOTERS AND MORE UKIP SUPPORTERS. START NOW !
