Despite that, my net package could not be re-activated till about 10am this morning. This was preceded by an evening of frustration. It transpired that the vendor could not process the transaction in time and.....did so first thing in the morning. He has still given me a day's grace. I have to pay him tomorrow.
The subject of the conversation (I was one of the guests) was Dr Shireen Mazari's proposal on resolving the Jammu & Kashmir dispute:
I've come across another interesting intersection:
I'm trying to comment on the Strategic Studies Institute Islamabad website, where one can access Dr Shireen Mazari's proposal in both text and video format:
However, this is what I'm coming across, layer by layer:

I noticed this a couple of days ago but because it relates to this date, I think I should add it accordingly:
Topical Questions Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 30th October 2018.
Imran Hussain Shadow Minister (Justice)
I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. For over 70 years, the sons and daughters of Kashmir have been subjected to persecution, oppression and human rights abuses, yet it seems that our position continues to be that this is a matter for India and Pakistan. How many more innocent men, women and children have to die before we at least facilitate peaceful talks between those countries to find a peaceful resolution?
Mark Field Minister of State
I do understand the passion and the genuine sense of outrage that the hon. Gentleman feels. Ultimately, there can be a solution only if India and Pakistan work together. It cannot be our role to intervene, not least because, as I think the hon. Gentleman will understand, we will be seen by one or other side as intervening on that side rather than on the other. We will do our very best, as I have already mentioned, as far as the UN is concerned—given that a UN report is on the table—to try to bring the parties together. However, on the notion that it is in any way the place of the UK Government to intervene on this matter, I am afraid that we have quite rightly maintained such a position for over 70 years.
End of reference...
The last sentence of Mark Field's response is most telling. How convenient to abdicate from your responsibilities I say. Who drafted the Indian Independence Act in 1947 and whose responsibility was/is it to bring it to fruition? The issue that transpired as the 'Kashmir Dispute' has its roots in matters deliberately overlooked.
