OP – when you come back here, and I’m sure you will, you need to start giving some information.

I assume this is your first attempt at a conspiracy theory, so I’ll let you in on a few secrets:
- There’s more to the Alex Jones playbook than a couple of shonky youtube videos
- You need to control the story. Already we’re distracted, and are acting like this is about the interpretation of EU legislation – which it isn’t – so you need to reign that in and focus back on what you want. There’s limited interest in what you’re saying already, leaving a gap of several days between “revelations” doesn’t build anticipation, it lets things wander off course.
- When you’re dealing with actuaries, we’ll fill in the gaps in your story with what we think is the most likely explanation of what’s happened. It’ll be pretty mundane. And the truth will have to be even more explosive to get us to decide it is interesting after all.
- Hyperbole isn’t your friend here. If something isn’t actually racist, don’t call it racist, especially if that is incidental to the point you're trying to make. If we think you’re BS-ing, you’ll need to do more to bring us back onside.

In short, get on with it, I’m interested in what you have to say, I’ll be around to keep a summary going for the people who aren’t going to watch your videos. If there is a massive conspiracy in the IFoA to take down one of it’s own members because they questioned it’s exam pricing policy, then I want to know, because that’s not a body I want to be associated with, and it’s a million miles from my experiences of the IFoA.

Wow. I guess I get "reading comprehension fail." I thought I had read everything here, and I had no idea that was the point.

I really don't blame JMO or others for having missed this. It's not in the original post, and it's not in the thread title. Given that the title is about racism against British members, people assume it's about racism against British members (as opposed to a specific whistleblower being targeted.)

I bolded the key line.


It's going to take more evidence than the specific person failed. People fail actuarial exams all the time. I assume the UK orgs have anonymized grading, as we do in the North American orgs, but I could be wrong about that.

So I'm skeptical.

Duh. I thought they meant "failed to support the person." The whole time frame also confused me. Supposedly the new rule looks at individual income, and the implication was that a new lawsuit was challenging that fact - or some such thing.

Too bad that the problem, if there is one, was so poorly presented.

Agreed

This is the point I was making in my earlier post. OP needs to get on and make the point he's going to make. No point in a grand reveal to an empty room.
