The exercise of democracy on the isle of Man is not one of its strongest virtues. Manx folk just want a quiet life to enjoy the prosperity that the world brings to its shores through deposits & investments. The dispossessed KSFIoM depositors are just an irritation to the government which claims that the effect of the loss of the bank has had no effect on the IoM economy and its AAA credit rating.
It is going to be in for a rude shock when it finds the world no longer considers this offshore centre a place on which they can bank with complete confidence.
The depositors have no quarrel with the people of the IoM; their gripe is directed at the directors & the FSC who failed to exercise due diligence in what they did that brought down the bank.
Manx folk need to wake up to the potential disaster that is going to affect the island's economy unless the government does the right & honourable thing to protect the well-being of the IoM, namely restore all deposits 100%
