Dear List,

Gordon Brown is in the UAE on the scrounge for cash.

He is meeting the ambassador today I believe.

Folks send faxes to request that the ambassador raises the issue of the kaupthing depositors with GB......HURRY HURRY bombard their fax machines today so that the machines of government can hear us

the ambassadors fax is:

00971 (0)2 6101586
00971 (0)2 6318138

His Excellency Edward Oakden CMG,
British Ambassador to the UAE
British Embassy
Abu Dhabi

My story is that I was rung today by the Embassy to say that the British ambassador had received my messages and would reply in due course. I think the British Embassy were rather fed up with the number of 15 page faxes I was sending on auto send expressing my disappointment at not getting any feedback and hearing that the feedback from a meeting with one of our Anglican representatives was that they (ambassador/Consul General) were not sympathetic and not interested in our case. The ambassador is meeting GB today and I have now sent a more conciliatory fax thanking them for their pending response but requesting that the ambassador raises the depositors concerns with GB.

Folks send your faxes to request that the ambassador raises this with GB..HURRY HURRY

Dear Mr Oakden,

I received a phone call from your office today to acknowledge the receipt of faxes that I have sent to your office. Thank you for this acknowledgement and I and the other depositors look forward to your response in due course.

I hope that while Gordon Brown is in the UAE that you are able to make him aware of the situation that many UK expatriate depositors with Kaupthing Singer and Friedlander Bank (Isle of Man) find themselves in. I believe I have sent sufficient information on this issue and do not need to repeat the story further.

Many thanks,

Sent a fax to the ambassador briefly explaining the situation and asking him to raise the matter with GB. Also made the point that we are particularly concerned about the GBP555m of KSF IOM assets (our money) that are now "fozen" in KSF UK

My fax was sent first thing this morning but only one page. It is the number of individuals not pages that matters!

I am not currently in Dubai - but sent very quick brief fax to ambassador - mentioned ruler of Qatar had also lost money in Kaupthing and told him it was his duty to try to help expats. i know from long ago - British diplomats do not help their citizens abroad - apart from their own staff.
