    Does anyone else think that far-right groups and right-wing tabloids will pounce upon the census results, which will inevitably show an increase in ethnic minorities and Muslims?

    Naturally. They'll probably claim that people putting 'witch' down are having a joke again too...

    You are aware that people don't necessarily need to tell the truth on the census, right?

    I can always say that I am a White Buddhist when I'm actually a South Asian Agnostic.

    The far right can cry and scream all they want - most people won't care what they say.

    100 years... there will be statistics before that, though, obviously, but the data won't be avaliable to view.

    Although given that the 1911 census went public in 2009...

    However, whats the point in lying on the census? In the end its there so that local services can be correctly tailored to what the community needs.
