Will I really get in trouble if i ignore the census?

I am pretty annoyed at the amount of things they want to know.

I have nothing to hide but why should I have to fill it in, the core people who are making the changes in our society will not be filling it in.

So if i keep ignoring what will happen

I have contemplated answering with spoiling the form with some sort of repeated statement to the tune of I hate the way i treat by this government

You have issues.

You will be arrested and put in prison forever.

Or you could read the front of the pack that tells you what will happen if you don't fill it in.

It's really not that difficult or intrusive and shouldn't take that long. I don't see the problem

This. What is it about today's society that makes people just find one thing after another to moan about.

It took me 10 minutes to fill it in for me and my 2 girls it doesnt take long and if you have a problem with filling in the book then do it online??

You will be fined,,, And the whole point is like people wanting to trace family etc to do family trees then we can get details etc and it only has to be done every 10 years!!!!:|

I dont see what the problem is with filling them out. It helps to sort out local services, so the right amount of money is put into areas. Even helps work out school places, public transport, nhs services. People not filling it out is the reason some areas loose out big time.

Actually i know someone who said they have ignored them and never got in trouble. I just get sick of filling in forms, i am not being childish nor awkward, i just feel they already have most of this info about us, and that the people they should be targeting with this form will not even bother.

Can any of you actually confirm that they know someone get a fine or go to jail.

I don't think any of my answers will a make a difference, the government does not listen as it is and my form is not going to make a difference of the matter.

I think you misunderstand the meaning of a census. It's not so the government can listen and make changes to society; it's historical documentation. It's a way for future generations to look back at either specific details or broad points. By doing it every ten years we get a regular catalogue for the history books to look back on.

No one is spying on you, the government aren't doing it for opinions and no it wont make much of a difference in your life time but that's simply not the point of a census.

It takes ten minutes, twenty minutes tops. Stop making n issue out of something that isn't an issue and that people have been filling in for decades. What makes you so special op that you feel you should be exempt?

Look at all the Government Lovers who think it's wrong for people to not want to share there private life with the government & whoever else may get there hands on it.
Some of you are the same fools that think people should shut-up & pay £2 p/litre for fuel if the government says so while these MP's get free Fuel & that from where I stand makes you more the fool.

i filled in ours in about 10 mins, it's easy and to be honest i was expecting a whole lot more from the questions they asked, just get it done and sent back there are bigger things wrong with this country, if you really feel the need to moan find a more worthy cause like immigration, or the eu, or something don't moan about something so easy and pointless like this.

Sheesh.
