New: Revised/Updated Paperback edition
On March 8th. 2004 Steve Moxon was suspended on full pay from his job as a Home Office immigration caseworker having blown the whistle on widespread abuse and cover-up of the government's policy of 'Managed Migration'. His revelations in the Sunday Times contributed to the resignation of immigration minister Beverley Hughes.
On Monday July 26 the author was dismissed for the crime of "embarrassing ministers", leading to immediate calls in the Sunday Times and Daily Mail for his re-instatement. In the words of David Davis MP, shadow home secretary: "It is outrageous that the man who is primarily responsible for the government having to take a grip of our failing immigration policy has been punished for so doing."
In this book Moxon outlines the events that led to the decision that he could no longer participate in a policy that appeared to be at odds with the intentions of Parliament. The book includes an extensive analysis of the relevant scholarly literature in demography, economics and psychology.
When the book was originally published the author was pilloried in some quarters for his right-wing views which have since become widely held right across the political spectrum. This new, updated edition includes a long afterword in which the author discusses these developments.
