RAF chief's regrets over drive for diversity as he insists plan to favour women and ethnic minority candidates would not have led to drop in standards

Article here. Excerpt:

'The head of the RAF has told of his regret over its plan to favour women and ethnic minority candidates over better qualified white males.

The ‘woke’ diversity drive was scrapped after the RAF’s recruitment chief refused to implement what she called an ‘unlawful’ selection policy.

Last night Chief of the Air Staff Sir Mike Wigston said the RAF had launched an inquiry into how such a controversial policy was devised and very nearly implemented.

He acknowledged for the first time the fall-out from the extraordinary row after a tense meeting with Defence Secretary Ben Wallace, and revealed that Group Captain Elizabeth Nicholl, who walked out rather than put the plan into practice, had requested the investigation.'
