Editorial Reviews

The Commonwealth Lawyer - Dr Venkat Iyer

"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."

Sir Andrew Green

"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."

Salisbury Review - Myles Harris

"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."

David G. Green

"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."

American Renaissance - Derek Turner

"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."

Right Now! - David Ashton

"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."

Liberator - Harry Lewis

"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."
