What people are saying about GDPUK

Adrian Nalden

AFAIC Tony is up there with Martin Lewis. Indeed the GDPUK shortcut is right next to MSE at the top left of my shorctut toollbar. Without either, I would be much poorer and almost certainly not working here.  I simply could not have got where I am today without this forum.

well done for explosive growth on GDPUK. Very impressive indeed, great posts- I love GDPUK, posters feel like my Brit friends.


Just a quick note to say how much I have enjoyed this site. - Thanks for all the hard work. It wouldnt allow GDPs like me to swap ideas and thoughts otherwise. The figures speak for themselves in showing how much a site like this is needed. Keep it up!!
