    You just know that any women that make it into join the Regt at gonna be the UK equivalent of a German shotputter....

  3. The nightclub photo section of that Belfast Telegraph website is amazing!

  4. Interesting quote from
    The Defence Secretary.
    [QUOTE ]individuals who are capable of meeting the standards of the Regiment will be giving the opportunity to serve irrespective of their gender [/QUOTE]

    Does anybody think the standards could be relaxed to enable females to join.

    No the standards required to join will remain equal amongst the sexes just like the fitness test standards.

    It shouldn't be too difficult for females to achieve the standards required, after all the Rocks are all a bunch of women anyway.

    Love this quote.

    Sir Michael said yesterday: ďA diverse force is a more operationally effective force. So Iím delighted that the RAF Regiment will be open to recruitment to women from September.

    Totally PC, even for me.

    Without wishing to sound unkind to Mister Fallon, diversity is not and never has been a strength, despite all those moronic politicians constantly spouting this mantra over and over again. Man's a dumbass.

    1. I can't see a rush of women scrabbling for this.
    2. If they leave the levels of fitness and strength the same the only females that would be able to pass would be difficult to physically tell apart from the blokes.
    3. Its going to cost more unless they bunk in with the blokes incl. showers.
