When I ‘blew the whistle’ on the multiple failures in ‘Managed Migration’ within the Home Office, I expected a scandal to emerge, though not to the extent that it did. Several scandals fell out of the inept cover-up, and the damage spread through the whole of immigration policy to work permits and asylum, to Europe and anti-terrorism.
With no strong feelings one way or the other about immigration, it was only after I was suspended that I looked at the research and was astounded to find there was no case at all for the unprecedented mass net inward migration Britain is now experiencing. This is the biggest scandal of all.
The truth is that the entire Immigration & Nationality Directorate – Managed Migration, Work Permits and the Immigration Service: none of it is doing its job. The whole of the immigration and asylum system we are saddled with in Britain today is unacceptable not just in practice but also in principle.
Always acting within the terms of the Public Interest Disclosure Act, I have no connection with any political party and I made no money from the Sunday Times. Yet the Home Office denied that the ‘Whistle-blower’s Act’ applied in my case and from the outset moved to dismiss me, showing the Act not to be worth the paper it is written on.
This is my own story, an attempt to present the wider truth, and revelation of why the Government has completely failed to address the problems I so clearly highlighted and has opted instead for a cover-up.
"Moxon's book is a frightening description of a total failure of government. Its most important -- if unintended -- message is that if the Home Office Immigration Department is anything to go by, Britain is far advanced down the road to losing its independent civil service."(Myles Harris Salisbury Review)
"I found this an uncomfortable book to read because it challenges what I, as a liberal, would like to believe about immigration - that it is broadly beneficial - and because it does so in a convincing way."(Harry Lewis Liberator)
"A fascinating insider's account of the immigration and asylum fiasco of 2004, which reveals how bad ideas with harmful human consequences can flourish amidst obsessive official secrecy."(David G. Green, Director, CIVITAS: The Institute for the Study of Civil Society)
"The story Mr. Moxon tells is rewarding to read, and he has combined his anecdotes and rumination on diverse subjects with very well-researched material, especially on why the economic arguments for immigration do not stand up."(Derek Turner American Renaissance)
"An outspoken account of life in the front line of immigration control. It lifts the lid, not only on the chaos in the Home Office, but on what the author describes as its 'progressive institutional failure to apply the immigration rules'. Mr. Moxon, an intelligent and courageous man, put it squarely to his minister that 'the Home Office was not concerned with the proper management of cases but with the creation of statistics in the interests of the Labour government'. The reader may come to a similar conclusion."(Sir Andrew Green, Chairman, Migrationwatch UK)
"No short review can do this wise and witty book any justice other than to recommend most strongly that readers buy and circulate copies as soon and as widely as possible."(David Ashton Right Now!)
"One of the hardest-hitting exposes of the UK's immigration and asylum system to appear in a long time... deserves to be welcomed as a signal contribution to a debate that has hitherto been characterised by more heat than light."(Dr Venkat Iyer The Commonwealth Lawyer)
