The head of RAF recruitment has resigned, allegedly in protest at an "effective pause" on offering jobs to white male recruits in favour of women and ethnic minorities, defence sources have claimed.

The senior female officer apparently handed in her notice in recent days amid concerns that any such restrictions on hiring, however temporary and limited, could undermine the fighting strength of the Royal Air Force (RAF), the sources said.

A senior female RAF recruitment officer has resigned amid claims of pressure to meet diversity targets.

The unnamed Group Captain is reported to have voiced frustration that white men were rejected in a bid to recruit more ethnic minorities and women.

The Royal Air Force aims to hit targets of 20% for minority ethnicity and 40% for women among new recruits by 2030.

Everyone who voted for that policy should be limited to using "diversity hires" anytime they need surgery or emergency room care...

This is so wrong, you give the job to the best candidate you can find.

If sub-par candidates are elevated simply because of their skin colour or sex then how are their comrades supposed to place trust and confidence in them? They`ll get people killed.

This crazy woke stuff needs to be stopped, especially when it comes to defence. China and Russia will be laughing at our stupidity.

Wonder how many people thinking up this **** would be happy to board a plane with the announcement...." Your pilot today didn't quite reach the required skill level to fly this plane, but well, she's black so we thought we'd give her the chance. Welcome aboard and fasten your seat belts"

I bet the surviving red tails are having a chuckle though. History in reverse.

Police departments have been doing this for years. We have a hiring freeze for officers and 911 operators because they haven't met the quota of minorities.

So what happens if the minorities don't apply?

I'm all for equality but surely we should be recruiting anyone who is capable of filling what ever role they're applying for no matter what their race, gender, religious beliefs bla bla bla? If they want to serve and can do the job bring them in. Theres a major war going on in Eastern Europe which could quite easily spread. We should be boosting the ranks.

Couldn't they have just used a less offensive label, like "chavs"?

A hiring freeze. They even offered a $500 incentive just for applying, but there are still shortages.

The sub par ones get chosen.

Just fill in the application, the job is yours!

It's a disgrace. Those that backed this should be Court Marshalled for being racist like any other racist incident.

The article is blaming women drivers? lol

Just an example of not picking the right people for the job.

Wonder if the premier League footballers will be going down on one knee to pay respects to the poor old guy. Probably not, I doubt he was a career criminal. No virtue to be signalled on the back of this one.

Thankfully they've stopped the one knee nonsense. Said it had lost its impact but I disagree, it United lots of fans against taking a knee.
