The Isle of Man have mounted a press and media campaign telling the world that the court decision yesterday bought depositors closer to getting their money back.. some things, coupled with a brief description of your circumstances, you might share with the press where you see this, are listed below. Try to personalise so the poor souls don't get bored of all our emails :-)..
• If the bank had been liquidated in October when it should have been, we'd have had at least 10% in time for Christmas!

• The IoM government are desperate to avoid another liquidation such as SiB some 27 plus years ago which damaged their reputation very badly at the time.

• We are being used as pawns in a political game to save the reputation of IoM financial industry.

• It is a scandal that the political needs of the Isle of Man are put before the civil rights of depositors. At the last court hearing the Deemster allowed 21 days to flesh out the SoA arguing that after 4 months a further 60 days was too long. Today, ANOTHER 60 days has been allowed because the SoA is still too sketchy.. Some justice for depositors!

• There has been a complete breakdown in regulatory control both in the Isle of Man and the UK. Depositors are suffering the consequences.
-Tony Shearer, the ex CEO told the FSA not to allow Singer and Friedlander to be sold to Kaupthing
-Then the IoM branch should never have been allowed to be restructured under the Icelandic parent
-The FSC should never have accepted the "parental guarantee" from Kaupthing which was no more than a letter of assurance

I was astounded to catch the end of C4 news and hear that all that was required now was depositors agreement to the proposed solution!

Not exactly what the judge said!
