No mention of the UK government being to blame...the assumption appears to be that it is all Iceland's fault. Has anyone been in correspondence with Mike Goodman about this? Just fired off an email to the Telegraph, but if anyone has a more direct line of communications, go for it.

My email to the Telegraph in case anyone wants to copy and send elsewhere:


Dear Mr Goodman

I refer to your article in today's online edition of the Telegraph.

Thank you for covering this story. However, for a follow up, have you considered reporting on the fact that the UK government has frozen the assets of KSF UK, under anti-terrorist legislation so that the freezing papers are sealed? Even the Provisional Liquidator of KSF IOM (a PWC insolvency specialist) says this is "unprecedented", and KSF UK owes KSF IOM a huge sum of money...the fact of the matter is that the UK government appears to have frozen the funds of KSF UK and intends to transfer this money out of KSF UK, thereby denying British savers with KSF IOM the opportunity to recover some of their funds.

More information on this story can be found here:
