Dangerous: Military Playing ID Politics

The RAF’s head of recruitment resigned after reportedly refusing to follow a diversity order to prioritise women and ethnic minority candidates over white men.

The group captain, who heads the RAF’s 450-strong recruitment team, reportedly told her boss in an email on August 4 that she thought allocating slots on RAF training courses based only on gender or ethnicity was “unlawful”.

In a leaked email obtained by Sky News, the officer said: “I am not prepared to delegate or abdicate the responsibility of actioning that order to my staff.”

Defence sources said the recruitment chief quit on the same day as she was not prepared to implement the “course loading”.

She resigned as Group Captain Recruitment & Selection, based at RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire, but is still a serving RAF officer, the Ministry of Defence confirmed.

The Group Captain said in her email two days later that the order to load women and ethnic minorities alone was “not actioned”.

A minister said on Friday that any evidence of positive discrimination within the RAF would be investigated, following allegations the service has “paused” offering new roles to white men.

Positive discrimination is the unlawful preference or promotion of someone based on a protected characteristic such as gender, sexual orientation or skin colour, under equality legislation.

However, an employer may legally take some steps to improve workplace diversity, known as positive action.

James Heappey, the Armed Forces minister, denied claims that a “pause” had been put in place on job offers for white men in favour of women and ethnic minorities, in order to hit diversity targets.

He stressed that no policy is implemented despite the RAF recruitment team receiving an order on August 2 from the chain of command, according to Sky News.

He said that Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, who heads the RAF, had asked his team to “pause” offering training slots to all candidates while they consider how they might take ‘positive action’ to assist improving diversity levels on various training courses in the year to March 2023.

“If there are avenues for the chief of the air staff to look at positive action, then that’s fine and he’s created himself room to do that. But we must be absolutely clear that no policy is implemented,” Mr Heappey said.

An RAF spokesperson said the concerns raised by the now-resigned head of recruitment had been “addressed” by her chain of command.

“The RAF recruits people from the widest possible pool of talent and is becoming a more diverse organisation, but we will not do so at the expense of our high standards, operational effectiveness, or adherence to legal obligations,” a spokesman said on Sunday.

“We frequently review our recruitment processes, seeking legal advice to ensure that we are mindful of our legal obligations.

“Any allegations that we have failed to do so are investigated without delay. The concern raised in this instance was addressed by the Chain of Command at the time and we continue our work to ensure recruitment processes remain compliant with all policy and legal requirements.”

  1. The Democratic Communist Party hates just about anything in uniform. They believe Americans in uniform are all racist, bigoted thugs. There science experiments have only one goal, which is to weaken all of our uniformed enforcement personnel.

    Here’s an example of the radical democrats ideologies on defunding and reimagining our police. The Democrats know that police officers are retiring in record numbers. The Democrats also know recruitment is dangerously low too. Lawlessness and death on our streets is nothing more than collateral damage for the left because the radical leftist ultimate plan is to federalize all police departments so the Dem’s can control all law enforcement from Washington!!

      • Linda, We know that the Royal Air Force is not American. What the article is showing is the concerted effort by the left, to destroy any Western Country that does not embrace the ideology of the Leftist communists. Unless the population is willing to SUBMIT to leftist ideology, they will continue to wreak havoc all decent loyal citizens who had the bad manners of being born “white”, even though we have bent over backwards to give these “other than white”, people every advantage at our expense. It is one thing to have everyone on an equal footing, but when the White people are vilified and prevented altogether from the exercise, in favor of the “Other than White” and now this includes the mentally perverse in our population, I tend to be just a little bit annoyed. A majority of our population, loves their Country. I know this is true of the Brits and the Americans, the Australians, the Canadians, and every other “White” Countries of the world. We do not enjoy having foreigners coming into our respective countries, disparaging our cultures and Histories, just to make these people who refuse to embrace our cultures, and just take advantage of our good will and charity. If people want to join our Military Forces, it should never be at the expense of the native citizens. The United States has already suffered under the restrictions of “Afirmative Action” for about 50 years, while people of qestionable qualifications were given a preference, just becaus ethey were NOT WHITE. This gives FULLY QUALIFIED people of color a stigma of those around them wondering what the real reason for their employment actually was.

  2. Hopefully, all police officers that have bad behaviors should retire or be fired. Present police officers need
    people skills and routine sentivity training.

  3. I SAY TAKE ALL THE SECURITY ELEMENTS AWAY FROM CONGRESS, PELOSI, THE PERSIDENT,VICE PRESIDENT, AND ANYBODY ELSE THAT WANTS TO DEFUND THE POLICE. AND THEN THINK ABOUT TAKIN OUR GUNS FROM US. THEN YOU WILL KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO WALK AROUND WITH NO GUARDS AND NO GUNS IN YOUR POSSESION. I AM SURE YOU DON’T WANT THAT TO TAKE PLACE.
