Go to BBC.co.uk/watchdog and give them your views on their expert's statement "Savers' deposits are safe; that's the important thing to take away this evening"
Suggest.. go to "Got a Story?" Right hand side and click the link.. then "Select a subject" highlight "This week's show"

Perhaps we can get them to do an investigation.. particularly perhaps the Derbyshire bond holders?!! which cannot be palmed off easily as an IoM problem..

I was unable to see the Watchdog programme -- was it useful / helpful to us ?

The actual programme just had a banking representative saying "the important thing you need to take away from this programme is that your money is perfectly safe..." and that was about all.. THAT is why we need to email them and see if we can catch their interest!

Pity we didn't get into this programme...but let;'s get into a subsequent one!
Nixi - are you acting as co-ordinator to get this organised ? I think we should be able to offer 2 or 3 members who stand to lose their life savings to be interviewed.
Timing & smart tactics are important with this one as right now the IOM will say "we have a compensation scheme but we are working to do better than what it offers" and a HMG spokesperson will say: "it's nothing to do with us -- you should talk to the IOM Government". In other words the programme will find 'not guilty' and declare 'case dismissed'

I couldn't see the best category to use on the BBC site, so I've sent my long, but detailed and accurate message to watchdog(?)bbc [dot] co [dot] uk, and received an automated receipt.

Well done, Nixi. A Watchdog KSFIOM investigation would be a premium high profile TV programme. It does follow-ups so the KSFIOM affair could be just the sort of thing this programme would like to get its teeth into.
