British Air Force suspends admission of white men for the sake of women and minorities

The Royal Air Force (RAF) has temporarily suspended the intake of white male recruits to meet the goal of gender and ethnic diversity

Against the background of such reports, the head of the service for the recruitment of personnel of the Royal Air Force resigned. The name of the retired woman is not specified.


The interlocutors of the channel expressed concern about this position of Air Chief Marshal Michael Wigston, who heads the United Kingdom Air Force, against the backdrop of allegedly growing threats from Russia and China. They accused him of being willing to break the air force’s manufacturing requirements just to achieve diversity and inclusiveness.

“I think that he should be called to the Ministry of Defense and told: “Here is the agenda in the field of defense, carry it out,” the source said.


The headquarters of one of the candidates for the post of prime minister, Rishi Sunak, called the desire of the Air Force command for “diversity” “not only shameful, but also dangerous.”

“The only thing that should matter when applying for a job is the quality of the candidate’s training, and not his gender or skin color,” the politician’s headquarters emphasized.


At the same time, a representative of the Royal Air Force denied these allegations, assuring that such a pause was not announced. At the same time, other sources of the channel confirmed the information about the suspension of the recruitment of white male recruits.
