Re: Primark help boost ABF performance

Shares nearly £30, time to take a profit with a miniscule dividend and a PE of around 40, methinks.

Re: "Have you heard the Good News"

I think you will find there is plenty of evidence for Jesus's existence outside the bible.

Re: Questions for "Better Together"
