The death of meritocracy: From the RAF to our elite universities, Britain is in the grip of a new dogma that prizes diversity above talent. And the result, says ANDREW NEIL, will leave Britain dangerously the weaker

Our thanks to Jeff for this. The headline refers to this as a “new dogma”. Ha! When it comes to the sexes, meritocracy bit the dust decades ago. The replacement of O levels by GCSEs in the 1987/8 academic year is an example. The education gender gap started that year, and has been with us ever since. There’s a very good account of this – and so much more – in William Collins’s epic The Empathy Gap: Male Disadvantages and the Mechanisms of Their Neglect. The ebook edition (Kindle and others) is a steal. You can buy the Kindle edition here for just £4.32 (the paperback edition costs £25.00 from Amazon). You don’t need an e-reader to read the book, you can read it on computers and devices with free-to-download Kindle reading software, which works excellently.
