The RAF instructed staff to stop hiring “useless white male pilots” in a leaked email seen by The Telegraph.  
In an email dated Jan 19, 2021, Squadron Leader Andrew Harwin, who worked in the Officer and Aircrew Selection Centre, sent an email to his colleagues, where he wrote: “I noted that the boards have recently been predominantly white male heavy. 
“If we don’t have enough BAME and female to board then we need to make the decision to pause boarding and seek more BAME and female from the RAF.
