has arrived on my doorstep. I will now ignore your questions.
All in same-sex civil partnership. Also, the religion question is voluntary. Confirmed. Gonna phone this number now and request booklets for how to complete it in various languages. "Hi, I speak Pashto but my husband (#3) speaks Igbo. Can you just send them all?"
Which is pretty IRONING LOL
it's pretty apparent how important census information is. Yes, it's used for government policy and so forth, but it's the biggest, most complete and most meaningful record of yourself that is kept for centuries to come.
It's nice lurking on forums at the moment reading people who say 'I'm going to say I live on the Death Star LOL' because, in two hundred years, one of their ancestors is going to look at those records and think 'ah fuck, my great-great-great uncle was a twat.'
with jokes that don't mean anything now.
That's why not many people know Norwich was unpopulated until 1992.
were conducted by strict men who knocked on your door and filled in the details himself to ensure clarity. It means they're kinda dull but you do get the occasional census official who only lists 'Christians' and 'HEATHENS', or some who are very pedantic about the visitors in the brothels when he knocked on the door.
Pretty hilarious actually.Between 1901 and 1911 some people went from 50 to 70.
"This question is intentionally left blank. Continue."
Even after finding out why, it's still funny.
31. Have you ever worked?
If no, go to 43
43. THERE ARE NO MORE QUESTIONS FOR YOU
Q31 is great because the questions have got increasingly pissy. "Are you working? Well did you look for a job last week? What about a part-time one? HAVE YOU EVER EVEN WORKED?"
Is it some kind of test?? Leave it blank and they'll be all "Aha another conformist drone", put something in it and they'll be like "aha another twat". You can't win!
I HATE you
I'm far too complicit for all this internet grandstanding to translate to real life.
asked to leave the country, or executed within the country, I don't really mind which (would prefer executed).
affects how many hospital beds, school places, police officers etc you get in a local area, each form that isn't returned or is a pile of bollocks cost your local area £500 in essential funding.
It's fun to be wacky, when people are losing their jobs and community services are being slashed to the bone.
about wacky questions like which wacky fairy stories I believe in.
The whole point is to gather as much accurate information about the UK as possible, on which policies that might fundamentally affect our lives and society are based. Cunts who don't return it or lie on it are cunting everyone else over.
What is your full and specific job title? JEDI lol
What passport(s) do you hold? JEDI lol
brings in a law to ethnically cleanse all Jedis. That'll teach the wacky census-filling-in cunts.
is spending shedloads (advertising, full time staff hired for duration etc) to encourag people to fill it in, and take it seriously for this exact reason. I'm sure that other councils are taking it similarly seriously.
Haven;t got a point really, just agreeing with you, carry on.
will need to be slashed by an extra £150 million that could otherwise not have to come off the essential services, rather then being spent on such a costly census
a) do you really imagine that if the census shows that there are not enough hospital beds for an area they will provide more hospital beds for an area (they cant afford to now cos they are cutting the essential services by an extra £150 million to pay for this non-essential census (cant you see the irony? ...although I am being mischievious here)
b) surely if they wanted to work out how much police are needed they would need to know about how many convictions people had, and surely the crime reporting would influence policing levels (although I guess it would help the policing services to know about ethnicity by area and also income by area, after all they would then know to provide protection in rich areas and to provide more hunts for criminals in poor or ethnic areas (Again Im just being mischievious)
c) I concede that the results might help with the schooling provision, in muslim dominated areas they could decide to abandon state provision of school and essentially say 'big society....blah blah blah......create your own faith schools.....blah blah blah (Im being mischievious for the third time here as well.....but the point is that you are just giving the benefits of the census that THEY have given to you.....If you are going to do their work in promoting the census then perhaps you should be due an element of that £150 million?

YOU ALL BETTER FILL THEM IN CORRECTLY
do I get to do one?
OH MY GOD I'M OLD
But I think one of the people in one of the other flats took it. I might request a new one.
are the same kind of people who voted for LOLBoris.
I havnt signed up to agree to do any census, how can one be penalised for not doing something that they never agreed to do?
The Libdems werent fined for not the almost opposite of something that they pledged to do.
SRS philosophical question.
e.g. you can be penalised for witholding information from the police
anyway... if they can force this issue, why don't they think about forcing the issue of voting?
such is the capriciousness of our rulers.
Anyway back to this passive thing.....I was hoping someone would bring up this bllx of a 'social contract' which is 'unwritten' apparently I have to do stuff cos of 'the social contract' which I have, apparently, given my consent to.
What i wanted to do (to prove it is bllx) is to ask when did I give my consent? or more difficultly.......when and how could I have indicated that I did not agree to it?
and if you don't like it you're free to chip off and live anywhere else that'll have you.
and that basically the RULERS of this country have an organised group of heavies who will force me to comply.....that is fine I can understand that.....but the thing is that the country goes through a charadey sort of thing where apparently it is all by consensus and democratic discussion, which is why I want to know more about this 'social contract' thing......who came up with it, whats are its contents, when etc.
could be something that could be worthy of punishment though, because it could be relevant to stopping 'Real' crime (by real I mean crimes that are crimes in anyones language and culture as opposed to just crime by statute that does no one particular harm.
Because that'll just encourage more people voting with no/unqualified opinions.
That happens anyway, but it'd happen more!
luckily for them the people who can put on hold the automated 'cause - effect' logical thought response are a smallish percentage of a human population, meaning that the majority are not capable of engaging in the same debates and dilemmas that the party leaders have, therefore they can just use whatever captures the publics imagination (as realised though popular mass media) to fight it out on.
i'm not necessarily in favour of compulsion to vote
was just drawing the parallel in response to creaky
that i do like the way that you've 'drawn the parallel'
more like, they're probablyu only doing it cos it seems to make some sense to plan services according to need....they're probably not going to do that, but having a census gives the impression that they are ;D
how all the questions are relevant to planning services,
but anyway, im worried my great great grandchildren are going to judge me on some who do you think you are? show
When you're planning services, it usually helps to know how many people you're planning them for.
as that is the be all and end all really (for many of them it seems)
Also if there is no money to plan or deliver new services then there is little point in knowing what it is that you can't deliver or plan for
but the amount of rooms in a house?
im not a 'up in the attic wearing tin-foil' person i just was thinking how is that useful?
but if they know that someone on the dole actually has a spare room then they can bilit some of the homeless people who are getting state money........or at least that is what I would do if I were a heartless but pragmatic tory.
Luckily the cens(l)us will provide future rulers with information that will prove useful in controling an unwieldy bunch of people
