I have finally received a reply to my email of 5 Nov from our local Liberal MP Sarah Teather. Her first para reads:

The bank has collapsed in the wake of the action taken by the UK Government to secure Kaupthing's UK depositors by transferring retail deposits under the "Edge" brand to ING Direct and by placing the bank into administration in effect freezing its remaining UK based assets, including those of KFSIOM.

Nothing new in this but as I opened the letter and read this I just felt the need to have a rant - something i've not done for several weeks now. If the Government took action to protect UK depositors then why are they allowing UK depositors to suffer? Just because we banked in the IOM we are still UK depositors. Sarah Teather has offered sympathy and said she will press the chancellor but it seems to me that GB and AD have absolutely no interest in anything their minions say, they believe they are invincible. Perhaps, along with fighting for our own cause, now is the time for us all to start actively campaigning against the Labour party and asking all our friends and relatives to do the same. The only thing that will have any effect on these demigods is the fear of losing their power. I'm joining my local conservative party and offering my services to help them in any way I can.

Hi lorraine,
could you do me a favour and also post this reply under the forum topic : http://chat.ksfiomdepositors.org/forum-topic/replies-mps-post-them-all-here so that we can keep them all in one place.
Thanks a lot
