I will ask a question and you have five minutes to discuss it.
"Which of your fellow hopefuls is a trans?"

You all seemed to be getting along admirably, you have all worked well together throughout the process, so sadly I have to tell you, you have all failed your assessment for joining the Red Arrows.

One of you has dirty trainers and will be removed from selection.

Yes I was determined to join the RAF and to meet the requirements, but while the operation was painful, the doctor did give me my penis back in a jam jar which now sits on my bedside table.

"Well, congratulations to you all. You've demonstrated that you have aptitude, interest, initiative, stickability and all those other things that make you ideal candidates for training and, had this been yesterday, you would have been selected. However, as you will have read in the Daily Telegraph this morning, we have far too many people like you, so we have to tell you you've failed. We wish you the very best of luck in your chosen career."

"None of those, because the detachment's fictitious." Correct?

No, it’s really quite simple. Walk around the chairs and when the music stops, you sit down. Shall we begin?

Welcome to the RAF command course, we understand you transferred over from the Army hence we decided to call you F Troop after the TV series which as you know followed the accidentally heroic and chronically inept Wilton Parmenter who is given command of Fort Courage, Kansas, a dumping ground for the Army's least useful men,

"Yes, F3, the camera is recording. If you're successful, the video will be placed in your personnel file - then, if you reach a very senior rank, we can check back and see how we got it right - or so wrong, as the case may be."

"Social distancing, F3? Yes - these new enormous desks take care of that - I'm socially distanced from him, and we're socially distanced from you lot. Any more questions?"

"No, F3, "Per Ardua Ad Astra" doesn't mean "Through Diversity to the Stars."
