YouTube UK profession getting sued for Racism against British members

Did you know that the UK profession is on the way to getting sued for racism against its British members. It has already got its fingers burnt for its racist pricing policy in the past.

We will post more in due course.

Dated from six years ago.

That means this news is moving as fast as the industry itself.

Yes, that's the "in the past" part that he's referring to.

Your reading comprehension appears to be as solid as it ever was.

There is more to come. The point of this initial vid is to introduce the topic. They recently victimised the person that made the complaint. When the Judges decision comes out, I will post it.. They appear to have failed the chap who blew the whistle on the IFOA. They used heavy handed tacktics against him.. As I said,,, wait for the judgement to come out... This is just the warm up..

You're assuming that I read anything past the date.

But if I did make an honest attempt to read it and make a genuine comment, someone would throw out some snark about my opinion not mattering because I'm not a part of the profession.

Can't win here.

This is obviously of interest to me. I will check back once something of substance has been posted

I never make any assumption that you made an effort to know what you're talking about. Certainly didn't do that here.

"People would make fun of my ignorant posts even if they weren't ignorant, so why bother?" is certainly an interesting take on your decision to post ignorant stuff. Benefit is, as long as you only post ignorant stuff, nobody can even prove that it's false.

Not having read the whole image of the letter, is the IFoA being sued because they charge less for exams in Indian and other nations where incomes are a lot lower than in the UK and other high-wage nations?

No. Well, they used to, that's the "in the past" bit. They now offer reduced fees to anyone earning under 7,000pa rather than basing it on the country. I assume that's a result of the 2012 discussions alluded to here.
The follow up is apparently the interesting bit... I am, as i do, waiting.
