    Home Office research is untrustworthy, and manipulated

    According to this article, from today's Independent, a former home office researcher has called for a boycott of all the department's research, saying that it is untrustworthy:

    Dr Reece Walters, a senior lecturer at Stirling University, accuses the Home Office of "rubber-stamping the political priorities of the government of the day" and calls for a boycott of Home Office research. Dr Walters writes: "Its research agenda is motivated by outcomes that are of immediate benefit to existing political demands. It is embedded criminology."Another writer claimed that an influential study which is being used to support millions of pounds of public spending was "flawed".
