Army jobs at recruitment offices in Leeds and Manchester have been advertised exclusively for black Brits amid continuing efforts to make our dwindling forces more diverse.
This comes straight off the back of dumbing down fitness tests to get more women through the door.
A senior defence source condemned the latest tokenism (which is also illegal): “More black people will join if they believe they are unlikely to be bullied and the colour of their skin will not affect their chances of advancement. It’s not about having a black face at the recruiting office.”
At this rate, the next step will be to employ Diane Abbott to lead a battalion of the Parachute Regiment. Not such a bad idea.
