Re: HYP Criteria

I agree, this is what I have grown to hate about HL, their constant attempt to push funds/shares for what I can only assume is their own agenda.

Poll: Unitification?

I do like G12's "UNITISATION? KEEP IT PRACTICAL " UKIP title.

However, before we totally lose the plot on this thread, may I say that I have nothing against unitisation, or those that choose to do so. But it's not for me. I wonder [more]
