    Thankfully this can be filled in online. With two adults and three children in the house the thought of writing forever wasn't appealing.

    15-20 minutes later and all filled in and submitted.

    It takes about 2 mins per person to fill the paper copy in.

    The info gathered is pretty basic/pointless anyway

    If you read it carefully the census relates to the persons in the house on 27th March.

    Rumour has it if you are away from the house you do not have to fill it in - especially if you are overnighting in Scotland where it is not happening at all. Campervan anyone?

    Supposedly to enable planning of requirements for hospitals etc etc, bet it's how can we think of new innovative ways to tax the populace.

    Not only do they have all this information about you and yours, if you do the paper copy and lick the envelope they also get your DNA :p

    Be careful out there. :D

    Nope - Page 31 of the form says that if the whole household is away then it should be completed on their return, otherwise the person should be included on the census return for their home address.

    You could always just say no :)

    Quote from BBC news yesterday "There is a fine of up to £1,000 for failing to complete and return the form, but in 2001 only 38 people were prosecuted."

    Tempted ??? Anyone???
