Surfing through the net I found this site. Pan down to section 5. It gives a wonderful description of just how safe the Derbyshire IoM is (was). I hurt my sides laughing

This article was written and published in 2001 before anyone outside Iceland had ever heard of Kaupthings - it is not relevant in todays world. Also Bradford and Bingley International is now part of Santander and has no links to the UK operation

Hi Ramsey resident,
Although the article was written in 2001 and certain names etc have changed with time, it does however show that Banks even back in the 'dark ages' were publising the fact that your money was safe and secure, plus Banks on the IOM had behind them the much vaunted Depositors Compensation Scheme, which even as late as November 2008, the IOMG were still extolling the vitures of,, and yet when it is needed, what happens, they spend months conjuring up a new scheme entitled SoA, at some suprising cost to the IOM tax payer.
So to me this article has relevance
