From day one, 8th October 2008, we have been led by our noses through a series of false promises by IoM Gov which have all been designed to divert our attention away from the truth. For example, our first false promise was the bank would be sold! What happened? After three months we were told there were no takers. I wonder why? The truth is the bank could have been sold if IoM Gov had borrowed 500+ million, resurrected the bank and then sold it. Too big a risk? Not really, there is money to come from KFS UK and if UK Gov do their stuff there will be money from Iceland or even a loan from UK Gov. It would have left IoM Gov no worse off than implementing the SOA and in turn restored the confidence in IoM for Banking. The second false promise is the SOA which has taken 5 months to produce and even now is not in an acceptable form. So what is the truth? The initial diversions and subsequent SOA have been implemented solely to avoid a bank being put into liquidation on the IoM. However, there is still time for the IoM Gov to reconsider and save a perfectly good and well run bank, which was not insolvent, from its demise.

The IOM despite being for so many years a financial centre seems to have trouble dealing with finance.

Can you imagine what will happen if they get their SOA?

Whew relief all round sit back manx men you did alright lads!

They fell for it hook line and sinker.

  1. We put the bank into liquidation and get what we can through this route. Forget about SOA.

  2. We sue the culpable indivlduals in KSFIOM, FSC, IOMT and whoever else is responsible for this debacle for the shortfall in liquidation proceed i.e anything less than 100 percent return plus interest since October 8 2008.

  3. By means of an internet campaign we make sure that no one in their right mind ever deposits funds in IOM banks again.

Please don't confuse maximising return with revenge.

If you take legal action against every Tom, Dick and Harry there will be NO winners. (In any case, depositors won't even pay ng a reasonable amount, let alone find the £millions for legal action against people with much much greater resources and clout.

Get negotiating, not name-calling, with those who CAN help.
