Census- The Cowards' Resistance?


A Census-collector called round today. She’s been round every day this week. I’ve not answered the door to her. YouTube is awash with videos of people swaggering around challenging the Census staff on their doorsteps. This looks very cool! It makes the film maker look very macho. On Facebook somebody said that what I was doing is called “The Cowards’ Resistance”. This is very unfair because I’m not a coward at all. I will confront them when I have to, but right now I want to make an impact, not look good. See: Not answering your door really screws up the system even more than if you go out and announce that you’re refusing to cooperate.
