    I did not fill in mine. I do not wish to tell the government any more information about myself than when I ask for a public service, such as council tax discount, where they will hold some information about me anyway.

    I certainly do not wish to be asked how I live or spend my money, or my religion (which is Jedi, btw). Then have it all sold to American intelligences and Trans National Companies.

    And so the govt census people can rightly go **** themselves.

    So you expect the government to be able to provide efficient public services without knowing how people live their lives. Nice.

    do you have a facebook/twitter/formspring account?

    If so, the Americans pretty much already have all your information. And unless you're some sort of spy or something, no one really cares where you live or anything like that. Why not save yourself the fine and just fill the damn thing in?

    We've filled it in, but not mailed it yet. On the question that's not a questions there's a few funny drawings of penis' and pacman and "This writing is intentionally left here." My job description is "Guess, it's not hard", my employers business is "Selling" and my health is Very Good, Good and Fair as I believe you cannot generalise health.
    As it did not say who they want to sign the front, A.N. Hero has signed it, declined their offer for a date and didn't want to give their phone number out.
    If anyone asks, it's my signature - a signature can be whatever you like at the end of the day, it's your personal thing. But we didn't lie on the form, just answered it bluntly and truthfully, so they can suck my hairy balls if they come harping at us for a real signature.

    Isn't it funny how you can be fined for NOT doing something.... I always thought you had to do something to break the law.. clearly not in this police state we live in, being fed lies from the govt about the deficit and need for cuts etc.. Anyone who hasn't read Johann Hari's latest article definitely should: The biggest lie in British politics.

    How dare the police state try to infringe my civil liberties!? You should only give your personal details to trustworthy for-profit organisations such as google and facebook, right?

    Yes, and how do you think they keep information about you up to date, genius?

    Not filling out the census is ridiculously stupid.

    And in turn don't take anything seriously any real economic or historical source says? Yeah. Right.
    I believe him, more than I believe Cameron and his jumped up set of twerps/elites, who'd say anything so they can push forward their real agenda of cutting until there's nothing left to cut.
