Legal relevance of 'census 2021' being in lowercase - none.

Deadline for filling in the Census - 21st March 2021. You can get fined after that but it looks like they are trying to avoid that with the door knockers, getting people to complete.

 

What isn't mentioned is that completing it online is cheaper than paper. But not everyone can do it online.

 

Who gets to see the details collected. Nobody outside the Census, that's the law. Nobody. Nada. Zilch. Zippo. Until 2121 when it will be published.

 

I appreciate most folks here may disagree with me but I'm the sort of bod that likes facts. You can't fix cars without them! So I checked.

 

 

 

Hahaha

Didn’t fill out the 2011 one had no intention of doing so. Had a young man with his official looking badge turning up on my yard advising me that his office hadn’t received a response from my address.

I just had a census guy knock on my door. I've not seen them before and I thought it maybe a delivery driver. He introduced himself and said that they've not received a census from me I said "okay" an

"but I'm the sort of bod that likes facts"...

 

Okay

 

"Contract made by filling it in - none."

 

False. Whether filling out the census online (e-signature) or in paper (signature) you are creating a legally binding document. You are signifying your knowledge, approval, acceptance and obligation. In fact anything you sign can be used as a legal document.

 


 "Who gets to see the details collected. Nobody outside the Census, that's the law. Nobody. Nada. Zilch. Zippo. Until 2121 when it will be published"

 

Again, total garbage. Nobody 'outside the census' is an extremely naive and limited summary of fact.

I think Anise is right to be distrusting and pointing out the contradictions. I note the job adverts for census takers has some contracts that run up to July 2020, meaning people can expect to be harassed until then. Yet, there does not seem to be a clear deadline to when they will stop asking for it. Also, yes if you willingly supply false information calling yourself Mickey Mouse, then you can become liable to breaking 'the law' which implies it is a binding document. Either way, it smells of poo just like everything else from govn'mt.

Last two weeks I noticed througt the window two yellow coated garbage suspects at my door last Saturday and yesterday on Friday about 7p.m..

On first letter was "required by law" and now on left print it has changed to a "criminal offence" IF i do not complete a census. So i got a question,

 Am I not being harrassed?

Exactly. It is harassment. At most, once they get past 3 visits to a household, that should be it otherwise it becomes a kind of stalking. And really only once is more than enough.

I've had a goon at the door on 6 separate occasions now.

A vaguely threatening leaflet through the door every time and 4 online key codes sent through the post.

This is a really curious point. So am I correct to think that actually sending something in with false or missed information could be more problematic because the very act of doing so has created a document? So for example, if someone returned it unsigned with the house number and postcode on squared brackets and simply filled in as "the householder," would they be deemed as "breaking the law" because in doing so, they would perceive it as the individual understanding the dictate that it "has to be filled in" and apparently deliberately perverting it- even without a name?

And I was thinking I might be in the lead. I've only had four visits. A total of five letters and four leaflets, now in a little pile near the front door. The next visitor might be able to see them all through the frosted glass.

 

Interestingly it's been a different person each time. I'm curious how they're assigning these calls and when they plan to throw the towel in.

 

On a side note, I recommend everyone register their birth certificate details with the common law court if you haven't already done so and obtain ownership of your legal fiction name too. www.commonlawcourt.com

Re: "Deadline for filling in the Census - 21st March 2021. You can get fined after that but it looks like they are trying to avoid that with the door knockers, getting people to complete."

 

You CANNOT GET FINED, as the form says it is to completed as soon as possible after the March date, THERE IS NO EXPIRY DATE FOR COMPLETION, that's a fact - look at the form - So, I'm completing mine on a rainy Sunday in 2027!

 

Also, the 'Law' statement threatening a fine is not legal statement and is not found in statute law - e.g. there is no legal requirement to complete a census of any kind. It is a perception of penalty (fearmongering again!) if you do not complete the form.

 

It is worth pointing out that the 2021 Census Form (& previous census forms) have the Crown motif displayed on them. This is an illegal and fraudulent use of the Queens Arms as the Census is not a crown commissioned document.

 

Another false perception being perpetrated to fool people into a fear of not completing it!

 

So, to round up 'CommonSense101', if you do trade in facts and attempt to belittled others well founded fears, then check out your facts first... the 'Fine' is the best example from what you have previously contributed.

 

Have a good day and read around a bit - take care.

Excellent points, completely agree. Especially the Common Law registration. If people do complete the Census Form, then they are entering into a contract with the State/Government as you've effectively consented to engage and share your requested information with them, again a Statute contract only.

 

People should have a think first. I wouldn't mind so much if it were just confirming a name and occupants, but so many of the questions are completely irrelevant and personal to 'planning local services' as they say.

 

Plus, they can actually get and already have access to many of these questions via your Council Tax, Electoral Register and National Insurance records, so why is so much effort being put into this! It's all a bit odd I think and especially at a time of supposed emergency in our country!

 

Strange they can be so 'efficient' with this, but not with Covid Statistics being flawed and thousands not get cancer treatments etc., etc.

 

Take care yourself.

Spot on!

 

Exactly what I thought!

 

I'm now assuming they'll hack the website and trace us all back via our provided details to sign up... probably an offence on their behalf, but it seems the authorities don't respect their own laws... of course a 'law' might not be a 'legality'... that's another story! :-)

You're right I think Anise. Don't complete it with false information as you've then entered into a 'contract' with 'them'. Just continue to note that there is no expiry date, it says this in large bold letters on the front page "...as soon as possible after...", so really that's when it's possible for you to do so... that could be next Christmas couldn't it!?

 

You can argue you are not refusing to complete it... just not yet, you're not breaking a law or contravening anything as you've said you'll complete it, when it is convenient for you to do so. In fact I don't understand why there isn't a completion date... it would have been easier for 'them'!?

 

SO THERE MUST BE SOME REASON WHY THEY HAVEN'T DONE THAT, ANY SOLICITORS ON HERE WHO CAN ANSWER THAT? Would be really interesting to know that 'they' don't seem to be able to use 'the law' to have an expiry date for completion.

 

DOES THIS ALSO IMPLY that you cannot be forced or tricked into completing it with the threat of a SUPPOSED FINE? Can anyone help with this perspective?

 

Take care Anise.

Don't know. All speculation. Officially possible yes, but in reality probably no, as they are not going to bring a case unless they have pretty strong evidence, which will require the 'householder' being really blatantly false ie calling yourself Mickey Mouse. I looked at last census 10 years ago. I think about a million householders didn't complete one and in that less than 100 cases taken to court making it a pretty insignificant number statistically.

Well so far, no more visits, just another standard letter to "The Householder" asking you to complete and submit it "as soon as possible." So again, this issue that there is no stated deadline really does call a lot into question.

 

I have perused it carefully and I also find it really odd that the declaration and signature is on the front. Generally speaking, they are usually at the end of a form. It seems to me that what we actually fill out is more or less irrelevant and I am thinking that what is important to them is collecting the QR code, number and your signature together for AI with the ONS connection to Leidos Innovations and Lockheed military interests.

 

Also interestingly, if you look at the legal basis to process the data, it states, aside from the decoy blurb about public interests, it states "Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject." That is, the ONS as data controller. Then it says that "Processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller." So I am wondering if this census procedure in part is also necessary to fulfill some legal situation under maritime law- that is, in addition to coupling your signature, address and QR code to the newest AI systems and quantum computers. I know a census is being brought out in Canada so is this happening worldwide?

 

Some great thoughts and information on this forum and good to know others have questions too.
