Again I have to try ad get this point over Folks.

Since I have been working all around the world I have noted one thing.Countries like Canada respond to emails and calls - not letters.
The UK has two cultures - the pub and letter writing !Please write letters to people or they will simply start treating e-mails as spam.

Let's keep writing and writing. Don't slow down. Don't give up. Deserve our victory.

For the attention of the Right Honourable Jack Straw, Lord Chancellor and Minister of State for Justice
Dear Lord Chancellor,
Re: Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (KSF) IOM
I am writing to seek your assistance and action concerning the current situation of the above noted bank.
As you are aware, the recent actions by HMG in freezing certain Icelandic assets have placed what was considered to be the perfectly viable banking operation of Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander into a default position. UK depositors in KSF UK have been assured by HMG that their deposits are 100% safe and indeed, many of them have now been transferred to the ING bank. I am sure you are well aware of all of this.
The unfortunate and disastrous side effect of the HMG action has been to force KSF Isle Of Man (IOM) into a default situation as well. A winding-up petition is now due to be heard by the IOM Financial Supervision Commission(FSC) on Friday 24th October 08 and the bank is currently being supervised by a “liquidator provisionally” appointed by the FSC. Hence time is now of the essence, as I am sure that such an action will not be beneficial to the depositors in this institution, of which I am one. Hence we are all attempting to ensure that this petition is delayed to allow finalization of current discussions/efforts/actions between all the parties involved.
I do advise you that KSF IOM has responsibility for approximately GBP821m of funds, emanating from 8,168 depositors. GBP555m of these total funds are currently with KSF UK and are part of the assets frozen by HMG and hence are a major reason for the default situation. A further GBP103m is held in 3rd party banks in the Isle of Man and hence is readily available to the “liquidator provisionally” and in-fact these latter funds may already have been recovered. Note that all of these figures are as reported to the Tynwald yesterday.
It is apparent that Ernst & Young, as the liquidators responsible for resolving ongoing issues with KSF UK, will seek to realize the asset base of the bank and transfer funds to ING as necessary, all as a priority. This has apparently been stated to the Price Waterhouse Coopers “liquidator provisionally” of KSF IOM. I and 8,167 other depositors in this bank, who it should be noted are mainly UK citizens, are therefore now extremely concerned that we are going to fund the “rescue” of KSF UK depositors. This surely cannot be a legal course of action and should not be contemplated or condoned by HMG. I would go so far as to state that if it is a legally correct course of action it would certainly be morally reprehensible.
The GBP555m held in the UK should therefore be repatriated to KSF IOM and I believe the “liquidator provisionally” is attempting to accomplish just this. These funds, together

with the GBP103m already in the IOM, form just in excess of 80% of the total amount of deposits.
Kaupthing hf, the parent Icelandic bank did issue a “parental guarantee” to cover 100% of deposits in KSF IOM when this entity purchased the IOM operation of the Derbyshire Building Society, taking over a similar Derbyshire parental guarantee. This Kaupthing hf guarantee is believed to be legally enforceable and is now the responsibility of the Icelandic Government, who I understand do actually hold the remainder of the depositors funds. I trust that this “remainder” is actually the element considered when the PM stated that the Icelandic Government “ ..have a responsibility in this matter and we will continue to pursue that with them” in response to a question raised by Graham Brady (Altrincham and Sale, West) (Con) in the last PMQ session. I certainly trust the PM was not referring to the KSF IOM situation as being the sole responsibility of Iceland, as it is apparent that this is not actually the case.
I and the thousands of other depositors with KSF IOM therefore implore you to instigate a just course of action to ensure:
1) Our funds are not used to guarantee depositors with KSF UK.
2) Our GBP 555m is returned intact to KSF IOM.
3) HMG, on behalf of the IOM Government and the many KSF IOM depositors, continues to press the Icelandic Government to ensure the parental guarantee is actually honoured and that 100% of depositors due funds are returned to them intact.

It should be noted that the Icelandic Government will be responsible for returning approximately GBP173m to KSF IOM in the above scenario, but I am sure that this will only happen on the proviso that HMG ensures the return of the KSF IOM funds amounting to GBP555m.
The life savings of many depositors are at stake, together with the well-being of all of us. I firmly believe that HMG will stand up and do the right thing in this sorry and chaotic situation. I also believe that justice should actually be done and not just be reported to be done.
On behalf of all the KSF IOM depositors, I wish to thank-you for your consideration in this matter and trust we can rely upon your assistance. I would also welcome the courtesy of a reply to this request.

In finally concluding, I would refer you to the website www.ksfiomdepositors.com where you will be able to glean an insight into the devastation that has been created for all the depositors with KSF IOM, basically I believe, by the best intentioned actions of HMG. We should however, not be allowed to be classified just as “collateral damage”!
Yours sincerely,

Meeting at Parliament Square, London. 12 Noon (get there earlier). Tomorrow. Nelson Mandela statue. Please no banners etc as we seriously risk being arrested for protesting. This is NOT a protest. We are going to meet and walk to hand in the petition at Downing St and get some press coverage. Be good to see people there. Talk to the press but make sure they realise that there are normal people loosing out. Tell sob stories (there are plenty) and make sure they know that we are not all rich and that the IOM was often the only banking choice. We are just asking for help from UK... well, they did cause our problem.

Re the post on Thursday 16th from expatfrance1 (and thanks to him/her for pointing this out), I have sent the following 92 word question for the Rt Hon Alastair Darling MP.

Q: When will the Chancellor authorise the release of £600 million of funds owned by Kaupthing, Singer and Friedlander (Isle of Man), which are currently being held in a frozen account(s) in the United Kingdom without justification and which action is causing great hardship to thousands of law-abiding British citizens who are unable to access their much needed life savings and does he understand that the negative publicity resulting from loss of these savings would cause great political damage to his government and a further lack of confidence in the global banking system?

I bet he never gets to see it, but just typing it made me feel better! If you can't find the original post I found some information here:

After the announcement the other day from Miek Simpson at PWC I thought I would mail him for clarification on a couple of points that were cencerning me and others.
The first was , if you are successful in "unfreezing" the chaps/bacs/swift tranaction currently with KSF UK or RBS in which direction will you be steering those funds, back to you or to there intended recipient.
The second point was regarding the £103 million he had secured outside of the bank, were the frozen payments included in this figure or not ?
Here is his response:

My intention is that the transfers should go to the correct place, by which I mean that if they have successfully left the possession of KSF IOM, they should proceed to their intended destinations. However, if any transfers did not successfully leave the possession of KSF IOM, it is possible that by law I may be required to recover them. I have UK lawyers investigating the matter and have spoken to the Administrators of the UK bank to try and determine the status of the frozen transfers, but I'm afraid I still dont have sufficient information.

The £103 million does not include transfers which have left the bank.

Like podfather, I have also been e-mailing Mike Simpson at PwC to clarify what he meant in his statement of 15 October on the Kaupthing web site, when he said he was trying to determine where in-flight transfers were in the system in an attempt to unfreeze them, in particular did he mean that the transfers will continue to their requested destination or be returned to the general pot in Kaupthing IoM.

He has replied today in similar terms to his response to podfather, "I am not trying to pull back any transfers which should legally continue to their intended destination. However I am still trying to establish where all the transfers are in the system."

Of course, I do not know exactly what he means by "should legally continue to their intended destination". As far as I am concerned, if I gave a clear instruction on-line, this was confirmed by Kaupthing (with print-out of the confirmation) and the bank has verbally confirmed that the funds have left Kaupthing (IoM), then this should be sufficient - but then again I am not a lawyer ...

this is on the HM Treasury web site!!!!!!
Landsbanki, Heritable, and Kaupthing Singer and Friedlander
The Treasury has taken decisive action to ensure the stability of the UK financial system and to protect the interests of depositors and taxpayers.

The Chancellor has put in place arrangements to ensure that all retail depositors in the Icelandic banks of Landsbanki (including their “Icesave” products), Heritable, and Kaupthing Singer and Friedlander (including their “Edge products”) will receive their money in full.

The Treasury has frozen the UK funds of Landsbanki to protect UK economic interests. The Treasury is now taking steps to ensure the interests of individual depositors are safeguarded and UK creditors of Landsbanki are treated fairly. No other Icelandic banks are affected by the Landsbanki Freezing Order.

Full details of the announcement can be found in these HM Treasury Press Notices:

I e-mailed Damian Green MP this afternoon. He just called me back. Although not totally up to speed with the situation, he was very sympathetic and promised to raise our issue with The Treasury on Monday. He will keep me informed of progress. This was a very quick and enthusiastic response and should encourage as many people as possible to do the same.

Our situation is that as a small business of just 2 people, we are not in line for any compensation from the IOM government. As a profitable company, we have paid significant corporation tax to the UK government. Therfore we feel it is grossly unfair that the UK government has essentially caused this situation and is not taking responsibilty for any compensation.

I would urge everyone to contact their MPs, as from my experience and that of others I have read about on this great site, they do actually respond and promise to take action.

I suggest that 10 people from this board should be given the access rights to this account and that should ensure that it is monitored as frequently as necessary.

I know there are numerous other people whom I've missed out but I can't remember all the usernames off the top of my head and this is why I only proposed 5.

Shouldn't there be an "F" in there - KSIOMPress(AT)googlemail.com ?

What I suggest, regardless of the address used, is that the 10 people monitor it and take any media enquiries of a general nature and post them in a dedicated thread in the Media Involvement forum. Call it "Emails Received FROM the media". I can set it up if you want.
Also see msg where "liebenk" offerred to help, maybe they should be on list too.

we can if needed forward the mail that goes to that email address to 10 personal addressses, so that you don't need to log into the account, and thus not have the extra admin burden.

furthermore, i suggest that we have a auto responder setup for our specific media email address, so that it auto replies to any media queries saying something along the lines of "Thank you for your enquiry, one of our representatives will be in touch shortly", which will make us look more professional and allow time for us to look at the query.

I have had a quick response from from both the FCO and HMT both of whom have seen your letter and noted the points contained therein. The key point being that the IoM has its own deposit protection scheme, so you need to contact the IoM authorities. I am informed that the attached link would be a good place to start. http://www.gov.im/fsc/.

I live in Germany but I emailed my parents' local MP Ed Vaizey, MP of the Wantage area yesterday asking him to press Mike Simpson to release the frozen in-flight transfers and to delay the potential winding up on 24th for all the obvious reasons.

Just to let you know he responded on the same day as follows:

"Thanks Julian, MPs are working as a group to try and get this sorted. Ed"

Yes, a very short response, not much to go on, but prompt nontheless and suggests to me that our situation is at least not vanishing under the carpet. I find this encouraging - or am I just being delusional?

Thanks to all who have done so much work for us already. I'm so very grateful.

Just had this reply fom my MEP's offce........No reply from my local MP yet.

Thank you for your message. I can understand your situation. It is particularly cruel that the timing of events that you have described appears to have put you in your predicament by a matter of hours.
I cannot promise that there is an easy solution, not only is the
I o M not subject to the UK guarantees but neither is it a member of the European Union and therefore MEPs have no standing in dealing with its domestic affairs.
I have to say that it is our view that membership of the EU is not a good thing for the UK and this is the manifesto on which all our candidates stand and on which John Whittaker was elected. We think that the sooner we reclaim our powers to make our own decisions, repatriate the wide rang of powers our elected Westminster politicians have surrendered and retain the considerable amounts of UK taxpayers money that we pass over to it each year, the better it will be and the more options we will have to fund the kind of activity that the present circumstances have brought about. Using the EU as a substitute for the shortcomings of the (total) UK political estbalishement and letting it escape what we believe are its responsibilities is not a good thing.
Whether or not UK citizens should be afforder protection for loss in the circumstances that you describe should be a matter for UK politicians and they should not be given an escape route to fudge that debate. Your experience with you MP is becoming too typical. I am passing this note to John Whittaker to see if he can think of any mechanism which might be able to be used to address the problem you have raised but in the light of your obvious and understandable distress, and your equally obvious desire to see that something is happening, I felt I should send you this "holding" response.
Gerald KelleyPA to John Whittaker MEP

P.S. as far as the inactivity of your local MP is concerned, my personal reaction would be to do what I do about any public servant or service provider who is not doing their job properly - write to their boss and complain about them!

Does anyone have a list of Conservative MP's email addresses , especially David Cameron's ( I lost it) as Gordon Brown's actions in bailing out mainland UK savers and not "offshore " savers is possibly politically motivated . In my mind it goes to figure that the vast majority of "offshore" savers and expats are probably Conservative voters ( still voting in the UK) and there are potentially 10,000 of us . Am I missing the point ?

Can we have some ideas for when we all think would be the best time for the press release to go ut for maximum exposure. Today to try to get Sunday Newspapers and perhaps Saturday's? Or should we hold off and release it in time for the Monay papers (the same day we hand pver the petition)? All thoughts welcome.

If we need the focus it will be amplified with the petition being handed over followed by the press release. I am a bit uncertain whether a Sat/ Sun release would be forgotten in the most important week ahead. This needs to stay in the limelight for the whole week, definitely on 24th Oct. I am very nervous about the liquidation prospect, since I feel that all powers concerned would like to nail this like Guernsey and bury us alive, We have to stop this!!!! I hope all the movers are acting on this, particularly, Expat as he is in direct contact with PwC

Suggest also include Press Agencies on list for Press Release distribution. Reuters, Bloomberg etc. With any luck it will prompt coverage on their on line services also.

we need top work as fast as possible time is at large, hit the weekend press, handing in petitions here won't get much exposure, it in LONDON and REYchavik we need to be seen doing this.
