The Royal Air Force (RAF) has halted recruitment of white applicants in an attempt to meet their diversity targets.
The RAF has long been at the forefront of the woke, right-on policies to the embarrassment of some of its members- a major promoter of Gay Pride, quick to accede to personnel sporting beards & now it’s espousing positive discrimination
Years ago I was at the University of Glasgow on a Ministry of Defence (MOD) sponsored research fellowship researching race relations within the British army. My report found the army to be institutionally racist & my report to the MoD was duly buried.,
I have long been an advocate of equality of opportunity within Britain’s armed services, & 25 years ago I wrote an article where I saw no good reason why females could not be part of my tank crew.
The editor phoned me up to say that he couldn’t possibly publish as “the idea was preposterous”.
I’m reminded of what Canadian psychologist Prof. Jordan Peterson called the “Scandinavian paradox” – equality of opportunity does not necessarily equate to equality of outcome.
Our armed services exist to protect the state and it doesn’t matter a jot whether our servicemen and women are white, black, green, red, religious, atheists, gay, straight or elsewhere on the LGBT spectrum. All that matters is that they’re up to doing the job.
