mauvepink BS: UK Census form - what's the problem? (77* d) RE: BS: UK Census form - what's the problem? 27 Mar 11

Simple or not... the people analysing the form will be getting paid for it. The people chasing people up will be getting paid for it. Everyone involved with the forms will be getting paid for there time with it... except YOU

Why is their time deemed more important than our own? Why is their time paid for and ours not? Yet we are forced and threatened to fill it in. It has had some of my older clients in a real upset about consequences and, despite reassurances, they have still been upset. It has taken some of them a lot of time and effort to do it. Is their time not important? Some pensioners are already overrun with form filling and such. Aside from that lots of people are really put in a panic by having to fill in a form at any time. They are not trying to hide anything: they simply get freaked out by forms.

They also said they would not ask about sexuality... but then ask if you are in a same sex civil partnership! Go figure that one

No doubt, like the banks, the credit agencies, the Police, etc etc... if and when you want to see your information you will be charged a cost for getting it given you. It's YOUR information not theirs!

In short the whole thing is unfair and some could argue unethical given who will be analysing it all. All that said, I did mine online 3 weeks ago when the form first came.
