This is a REMINDER that Nixi will be singing for DAG on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square at 7 am on Saturday 12th September: http://www.oneandother.co.uk/participants/Nixi

Nixi deserves all the support he can get.

Some of us are travelling from outside UK to be there. We too would like to have your support and not find ourselves all alone in Trafalgar Square!

With luck there will be some leaflets to distribute. Otherwise, there is no special 'programme', but just being there, at the foot of the plinth, would be GREAT! If we are enough we should get a few video shots of the DAG supporters. And the more we are, the better our chance of getting media coverage.

So PLEASE, any of you within reach of London: make your plans now to be there at this unearthly hour (well, it could have been worse - this goes on 24/24!).

It would be helpful to have some idea of the number planning to attend. So please, if you can, either add a comment here or email me via my contact.

This is for all of us to act on - don't leave it to "the others"

Just watched the video clip of you at Trafalger Square. Brilliant effort in bringing our message across.
Really sorry we could not support you but we are in America at the moment, however it was good to see some familiar faces there with you.
Well Done.

There is a very derogatory posting on the One & Other website of Nixi's performance as follows:

At 18:19, 15 September 2009 SW3Flyer wrote:
I'm going to put this in layman's terms for you: IT IS NOT THE ISLE OF MAN'S FAULT.
The Isle of Man DOES NOT have your 'money'. The United Kingdom government DOES.
Take your case to Mr Brown and Mr Darling; they're the ones who still hold the assets of the bank. It is far too convenient for you to blame the Isle of Man. Turn your attention to resolving the situation rather than resorting to ridiculous publicity stunts. Each stunt you pull reinforces the fact that you never had a grasp on the facts. If you are clear on the facts, why did the IMF give the Isle of Man a clean bill of health yesterday? It was a detailed report and you can find it here: http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/cat/longres.cfm?sk=23269.0

I have posted a comment in response suggesting that SW3Flyer reads Lucky Jim's blog about this so called "clean bill of health".


Thanks Nick - great song and

I'm watching the video of Nixi in Trafalgar Square as I type and I feel such immense gratitude to him for his outstanding performance and to his supporters for being there with him. I'm in the US and couldn't make the journey to London because of work commitments, but this video makes me feel as if I WAS there. I've told our story to many people over here and their attitude is usually "so what, who cares" because it happened overseas and not on US soil. Nixi's poignant performance will make sure that people EVERYWHERE will care. I'm sure he will become the superstar of this banking crisis! Thank you Nixi.

Well done Nixi and all the supporters who braved an early morning start in London and thank you from one depositor who was too far away to be there although was so in thought, at least! Fantastic oratory. We just need you to become an M.P. and then we're set.....Well done all.


Thanks Nick - you were great!

Thanks Nick - you were great! Safely back in France, I've now watched the video and been able to listen attentively to your moving description of events. No easy task - up there with no notes - but for me you said it all with real sincerity - very impressive.

And thanks to all of you who turned up and came and shared breakfast afterwards. It was really good to meet you all. As Nick said at the end - we are not going to go away!


THANKS!!

Nixi was up at the crack of dawn to get himself ready to get on the plinth. So bravo to him and a huge thank you. You did brilliantly Nixi. Also to depositors who came from far and wide to support him. The members who came from DST. Anrigaut and Sleeplessnight who worked on the lay out of the brochures. Conned for Don't Bank of the Isle of Man business cards which will direct many people who don't know anything about our situation to now look at the videos which explains so well the hell most of us have been through these last 11 months. For me as Banna's second fiddle it was a pleasure to be able to meet fellow depositors and be able to match faces to names I have just seen on the site.
To listen to other people's stories and put forward ideas on how to get the best result for getting our money back. All positive. The early rise was well worth the effort. I am so pleased I came and thank you again to everybody who has and is working so hard to achieve the best result for us all.


Well done Nixi ! Now "all hands on the gun deck!"

Well done, Nixi! Another Trafalgar cannon ball fired in the DONT BANK ON THE ISLE OF MAN campaign! .... and your video on Youtube.com is brilliant !

Thank you too to all the folk who turned out at the crack of dawn to support Nixi & promote the DAG's message & Mission. The cameras picked out the great banners.

Nelson defeated the French & Spanish at Trafalgar though the odds were against him. We will do the same though the odds appear to be against us! We must ALL join in this battle -- there is something everyone can do to promote the campaign so the call is: "all hands on the gun deck!"


Thank you

Thank you Nixi for going up on the plinth, and thanks to all who were able to be there. The banners/signs looked good too. Sorry that I am too far away to join in. If I could have been there I would. Hope it gets some good media coverage.


Thankyou to all those involved..

The latest mailout to the DST circulation list includes an appeal for support. If you are a depositor not receiving these mailouts and you wish to be added to the circulation list you should contact KSFIOMDSTContact(?)googlemail [dot] com.

Meanwhile, if you intend to attend the plinth event, it would help gauge support if you could email KSFIOM4thPlinth(?)googlemail [dot] com indicating how many of you plan to attend.

Thanks everyone!


Will be there too

Anrigaut, I'll be there.
If my daughter is in London that day she'll be supporting us.
Pity if we cannot get some leaflets organised.
If we can agree a text it should not be too dfficult to get them printed. If we can agree a text I'll get them printed - self adhesive I think so we can stick them everywhere?

Yes I am planning to be there - Nixi has gone to a lot of trouble to get himself there - the least we can do is be there with him.

Media coverage would be good - I have a still camera but no video.

Last I heard it was in production. Suggest you ask Nixi. Would be good if it was on-line before 12th.

Was GREAT to watch you on the plinth. Thank you and thank you to fellow savers for being there with you.
Loved it when police sirens could be heard as protestors were marching around the plinth. LOL


Well done Nixi

For your performance on the plinth. Sorry we couldn't be there but our daughter and boyfriend managed to get there.
Congratulations and thanks for doing what we couldn't
