assembled Gentlepersons, your wisdom if you will... i've just recieved an electoral registration form from my local, and apparently illiterate, district council. it says that i am required by law to register, and that either failing to do so, or providing false information, is liable to a fine not exceeding £1000. now, what it doesn't do is say 'you must provide this information by X date or you will be deemed to be in contravention of the Act' (or whatever), just that you must do it, and please do it by Y date. i've checked the small print, i've re-read it, i'm absolutely sure that there is no cut-off date specified on the form. for personal reasons i'd, for the moment, prefer to be as invisible to the wider world as possible - and by happy circumstance i find that they've spealt my surname incorrectly, turning it into a much more common name that is quite different to my surname. so, fair arrsers, what is the situation: is this another law thats got a bit missing that means its unenforcable, is it actually enforcable, but nobody actually does so, and if i were to return the form with my usual appalling handwriting/signature and sadly having failed to notice that they'd spealt my name incorrectly, would there be any comeback? to clarify - i'm out, i've no need for any financial products, i don't bother voting in local elections - and actually, i have a political problem with being required to partake in democracy: it seems somewhat oxy-moronic to me... cheers.
