ITS UK CENSUS TIME AGAIN...OR IS IT..
i was sitting down ready to fill in my census today...then i saw a news report of people wanting to boycott it..i thought it was funny, the same old
crowd arguing just for arguments sake...boring..BUT OH MY GOD..
the census this year is very very dodgy...
now hold on a minute...i always knew filling out the census (population count) was slightly contraversial..but look at this video below i couldnt
firstly the census is more than a population count now..i have seen it steadily turn into a massive book to fill in. the form asks all questions that
could be deemed unnecessary..like..who pays the bills?...what are your occupations..what are your qualifiactions?..how much you earn?..etc etc..over
now im a bit of a twat...i could claim i cant read..or just put a line through it all...but i heard that it was a illegal to not fill it out...ok i
thought ...i`ll be a brief as possible...and fill my obligation to society..BUT THEN....LOOK AT THIS NEWS REPORT...ALL ENGLISH PEOPLE FILLING IT
OUT...YOU MUST KNOW WHO IS COLLECTING THIS DATA ON BEHALF OF THE GOVERNMENT...IF YOU DONT KNOW...LET ME INTRODUCE LOCKHEAD MARTINS...
AN ARMS MANUFACTURER COLLECTING THIS DATA...OH HAEELLLLL NO!...WHY ARE THEY INVOLVED
putting all this info into a computer then playing war games....what??....im not happy

I tell you what will be even handier than that mate..a copy of the contrived arguments they are training their agents to use against those of us who
will either not fill in the form, or only enter details traditionally entered, and decide the market research scam / locating dissidents is not going
to wash with us Brits.
We're a quiet bunch normally, but none of us will stand for being pee'd on by any government, then we get...not so quiet.
The census is only to see how many reps an area gets...so really the only question ever needed is..how many people live in this house...
Thats it...thats all thats needed..anything beyond that is unnecessary and pointless at best.
I personally don't mind answering other questions that may help progress situations...employed/unemployed sounds like a logical question for
potential aid and stimulus focus...not what the census is designed for, but I can see the value in that, however, that is more of a state
responsibility verses a national one.
I wouldn't say there is some grand evil conspiracy behind more and more questions...but simply put, its not the design or function of census no
matter what the reasoning behind it. If they want more info, they should attempt to pass some sort of logistics bill that comes out now and then and
is not mandatory.
you can find the questions at www.ons.gov.uk... and just download one of the pdfs.
one question is really messed up:
"17 This question is intentionally left blank go to 18"
i have no problems with a cenus if it is for a government to get official numbers for citizens within a country, though why they need to know more
than some employers is beyond me, plus also the fact that theres the lockheed martin connection. i for one will not be filling this in and hope they
can trace me down to try and fine or arrest me.
