Who Do You Think You Are?

Recommended Posts

Just as our society gets more complex and our understanding of its components more difficult, Libcon decide to abandon one of the most important ways of helping our understanding.

Social policy needs the Census and analysis is at last able to make full use of the data. The Census is not just a vanity resource for family historians.

Maude seems to have made an uninformed decision and it is a big one. This was not mentioned in the Manifesto.

Fortunately, the 2011 Census will go ahead. For the last time we will see the composition of our population. Is that what this cut is all about?

What worries me most about this is the deeper meaning. It's a bit like why BP were drilling so deep. Running out of oil?

Scraping these long standing institutions which made the 1st World what it is, suggests to me the financial conditions left by Brown are perhaps far more dire than we realize.

Instead, the Government is examining different and cheaper ways to count the population more regularly, using existing public and private databases, including credit reference agencies

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/7882774/National-census-to-be-axed-after-200-years.html

Facebook, Tesco club card, Credit, debit card, Internet service provider - why need the census?

Global air travel and the free movement of all people within the EU can quickly make any census inaccurate. The huge cogs of govt react too slowly as well.

When they were taken years ago, even up to as recently as 1981, I'd have thought huge areas of people remained mostly static, despite Norman Tebbit's attempted persuasion.

There must be a lot of better ways to collect the data although the stuff about religion and ethnicity will be difficult from clubcards, etc because I for one always skip those bits on questionnaires.

Also photocard drivers licence, Passport, National Insurance, google maps, TV licence etc.

How many of these will be around in 20 years time, let alone 100? The censuses from 1841 on are an immensely important historical record; even leaving out the benefit to the millions of genealogy fanatics.

That's just the socialist meddler in you feeling like things are moving out of 'control'.

What, losing control?

Nah, thinking about these people that think they have the right to control me.

Good luck with that! :D

It's just a pity this didn't come in time to cancel next year's pointless exercise. If only Brown hadn't bottled it in autumn '07 ;)

Indeed I'm slightly surprised to learn that it's already too late, eight months before the time. Are all the forms printed already?

Anyway next year's results will be near-worthless thanks to Hilltop's unlamented government's criminal conspiracy to flood the country with unregistered undocumented aliens and hang the social consequences.

As others have pointed out we now have a plethora of other ways to obtain similar data, none of which existed in 1841!

As for the manifesto, both governing parties' manifestos went on the bonfire two months ago. It's called a fair voting system :P

But never fear Hilltop - there's plenty of time for Labour to come back and reverse this cancellation in time for 2021 (if there's money to do it by then).

Your obsession with equating any form of state action with socialism and specifically 'socialist meddling' shows an irrational and obsessive mind - perhaps even a psychosis.

If I remember my history, census-taking in England dates from the early 19th century - when unfettered red-blooded capitalism was the order of the day. I also recall that Jesus Christ' parents returned to Bethlehem for the census taking by those you know as marxist-communist and the rest of the world knows as the Roman Empire.

Take your pills, have a lie-down in a darkened room. Get some treatment. Do something. But do stop posting diarhoea.

But socialists do love to meddle though.

I thought the first in the UK was the Domesday book, whereby King Bill could see just how much goodies he was going to be able to get his hands on.

Have you ever seen one of those zombie movies? Socialists are like zombies. They mindlessly rampage through a population trying to eat everyone who's alive until they've consumed everything. The only way to stop them - off with their heads. Now where's my chainsaw.
