I was talking to my pal the copper, and he says that on every course he goes on they make him fill in a questionnaire on his ethnic origin. He i) suspects the use to which the information is put, ii) dislikes any kind of affirmative action, and iii) is a difficult b*stard So he has started ticking the box at the bottom - "I prefer not to say". Invariably some boss comes up and says, "I noticed you ticked this box. Could I ask you why?" He, of course, replies........................................... "I prefer not to say". Now, if 80% plus of people, for sheer devilment, ticked that box, it might be interesting. It would be like the "Jedi" in the census. "I prefer not to say" could be the dominant ethnic group in the UK.
