...spoke to someone today who has been chased three times for his census form although he prepared it a week ahead of the 27th March Census Date and posted it on the morning of 28th March....is anyone else having this trouble ...?....the chasers earn £7.80 circa per hour plus costs e.g. telephone calls etc...I sent mine by internet so they can't claim non receipt...I have the receipt.....easy way for inefficiency to breed and costs to multiply.... :rolleyes:

Had I filled it in?

no.

Was I going to be filling it in?

no.

Why?

yes but at least this way they are not claiming benefits and some of the money is recovered as tax whereas if they were left unemployed they would probably be costing us even more.

They certainly were when I posted ours (Monday after census Sunday.) Postbox was too full to take anything else - had to hand it in at the P.Office.
