GUEST,Steamin' Willie BS: UK Census form - what's the problem? (77* d) RE: BS: UK Census form - what's the problem? 28 Mar 11

Ok, I don't like the idea of the company who got the contract to administer this. They have blood on their hands and are owned through a country that is not civilised enough to join the International fold, even though they claim to lead it. (Get rid of capital punishment and I will start taking USA seriously.)

Right, that off my chest, move on.

A census, if the data is used properly, helps plan the need for services over the next ten years. As public coffers are being squeezed at present, seems to me that adequate planning targets most need.

Also, by not engaging, councils will receive less money as their population will be judged by the returns, not by any other way of counting the population.

(Just as an aside, did you know that the population by GP list size is larger than reality? That is because they are paid by, amongst other factors, list size. So.. new born babies are added to the list the minute they are born. When people die, it takes time to take them off the list. Funny that......)

I have issues in general about interference, but at the same time want targeted decent public services. Seems my view cannot be polarised then..........
