The army has a new recruitment campaign, encouraging people who would not normally consider a career in the military. So what?

Before you know it, we’ll have a black US president, a woman prime minister, a Muslim mayor of London and a lesbian leader of the Conservative party... oh wait...

Excellent... Excellent... the plank at the front can take the first sniper bullet alerting the men at the rear they're in danger, and giving them time to take cover. I fully endorse this new approach.

And after his fifth daily devotional to Mecca and Allah he can get up and run over the top to shoot his 'brothers' and 'sisters'. No problems there then.

It's total PC nonsense which has presumably been put together by some "diversity civil servant" with no knowledge whatsoever of military training. It has already been ridiculed by serving soldiers who have highlighted, for example, the chap kneeling and drinking from a stream. They are trained never to drink from such sources. The danger in our society is not people of differing religions but the crazy people who put together this sort of ridiculous PC propaganda.

In the advert he takes his boots off. Imagine enemy contact, "Oh wait while I get my boots back on" :) As one soldier said:- "Don’t worry mate we will stop the patrol for you, take your boots, helmet and weapon off while you’re at it, drink out of that contaminated river, oh and we will mute our comms for you." :)

Why a Muslim, surely they would have a better chance of recruiting Sikhs or Hindus, especially as we are constantly told the Muslims despise us for bombing their land, even though they are supposed to be British and we haven't been bombed since the 40s.

Muslim soldiers served in both world wars for Britain-if Muslims join the military it seems objectionable to some, if they don't people will tell they're not integrating.
