British Forces Mired in Identity Politics, Army Winning ‘Race for Diversity’

The Armed Forces of the United Kingdom have become mired in identity politics, with the British Army bragging that it is winning the “race for diversity” against the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy.

“[M]ultiple long-term targets [were] set out by the country’s defence and military leaders” to increase military diversity in 2015, according to military interest news source the Forces Network, with an increase in the proportion of BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) personnel in the Regular Forces to 10 per cent by 2020 becoming a key target.
