UK multiculturalism: Foreigners should have the same rights as British to enter the Army

leave a comment »

the Army said it wanted to put a 15 per cent cap on the number of recruits it takes from overseas.

The decision was taken because it believes that any more foreign soldiers would dilute the British Army’s cultural identity. No less troubling, there is also the risk that foreign soldiers in British ranks might be banned by their own governments from taking part in certain conflicts, such as in Iraq and Afghanistan.

So much, you might have thought, is obvious. But not to the Equality Commission, which says the move would fall foul of the Race Relations Act by treating foreigners less favourably than British citizens.

Really, you don’t know whether to laugh or cry. It surely doesn’t need to be said that to defend Britain, the armed forces must reflect and share the culture and values of British society — which means their members have to remain predominantly British.

Eclipse? No, this is suicide, but with masochism…
