Well, It's A Better Theory Than 'Midichlorians'...

It was inevitable that the Rebel Alliance would defeat the Empire in Star Wars. Why? The Empire’s leadership was almost solely made up of white male elites with the same accent and outlook.
The rebels, meanwhile, are a band of diverse freedom fighters with all views welcome. They are a tapestry of differing backgrounds and experiences.
Governments around the world are just starting to learn the lessons from this encounter. They are overhauling the way they include people in government, opening up their processes and recruiting in new ways.
Right. OK.

Should we be looking for crucial exhaust ports in UK civil service buildings, then? Asking for a friend.

The rebellious Brits have just won their first battle against the EU evil Empire. So now we know why. The Brussels elite mostly white males who certainly all have the same outlook as for accent no. Darth Vader Junker and his cohorts did the biding of the Kaiserine(Empress) to thwart us rebels but to no avail. The war is not yet won and many a turncoat lurk in the shadows of the leave camp and may yet help the empire prevail. However we are a tapestry of differing backgrounds and experiences or as some call us racist swivel eyed loons so we may yet win all.

Does this mean that the State should be forced to recruit people who aren't just the usual Common Purpose clones?

Thought not.

Interesting. The Empire wasn't defeated because it was an evil band of fascists that everyone rebelled against, it was because they didn't have any LGBT BAME alien creatures in it's ranks.

Hmm...

Quite! So often the much-vaunted 'diversity' the Left favour is people who look different, but all think in lockstep.

"The Empire wasn't defeated because it was an evil band of fascists that everyone rebelled against, it was because they didn't have any LGBT BAME alien creatures in it's ranks."

It takes quite the single-minded CP graduate to come up with this, doesn't it?

"We truly are the descendants of the Golgafrinchans"

Now there's a horrible thought!
