Our thanks to Nigel for this. An extract:
Air Vice-Marshal Byford, one of the most senior ranking women in the military, told The Times that she had ‘slowed down’ recruitment processes for all candidates after failing to meet diversity targets.
She said: ‘I want the best people. So I need the best people to join to achieve the best they can during their service career and we get… what we need from an operational capability perspective.
‘And if I can include more women and more people from different backgrounds in that, I think I have a better service in the long run.
‘We are unashamed about doing that because I think that’s a good thing.’
Exactly how the RAF would become a ‘better service’, the blithering idiot doesn’t explain. Taxpayers are funding a woman committed to diversity above operational effectiveness and efficiency. She – and all the others committed to this idiocy – should be fired.
