What worries me is that succesive census' have increased the amount of information to be given. I suspect that the next one will include personal details [ring any bells?] not included on previous ones.
I can foresee the day when a swab will be required on census for DNA identity.
A good idea to outsource it given the long track record of spectacular incompetence of the current collection of grasping crypto-Trots, laughingly referred to as Her Majesty's Government.
If it was left to this discredited collection of failed whelk-stall proprietors, former Polytechnic lecturers and redundant Trade Union officials we would all wake up one morning and be informed that the population of the UK is 12 men, two women and a Jack Russell bitch called "Britney", all of whom live on benefits in rented accomodation of top of Scafell Pike!
Seriously, don't let these cnuts of a Government anywhere near it!
