|The court referred to “informational privacy” – “This notion of privacy derives from the assumption that all information about a person is in a fundamental way his own, for him to communicate or retain for himself as he sees fit.”|
This citation seems to uphold what many believe to be true – that the Census is an intrusion and a violation of our right to privacy. Is it right that force and coercion should be used to frighten people into compliance, of course not.
There is an alternative to not completing the census form and that is to ask some questions of your own. The attached template file(s) derive from the efforts of Dave who is very active in providing advice and support to others so that they can better understand their rights.
The following constitutes a Notice of Conditional Acceptance and Request for Clarification from the Office for National Statistics. In truth, the questions in this template are reasonable and are those posed to any business in the UK offering services or employing people in a “secure” role.
This is a work in progress so if anyone has suggestions for additions to this document post a reply here and I’ll incorporate them into updates. Now wouldn’t it be fun if all those using this template were to send their letter by recorded delivery on the same day – say Wednesday 16th March 2011 so they all arrive together on the same day 🙂
It occured to us that since the census form is address to “The OCCUPIER” that the letter should come from “The OCCUPIER” – v5 is updated.
Some interesting Freemen suggestions have been made by Steve Anderson – v6 is updated with these:
NO MORE CHANGES WILL BE MADE OR UPLOADED HERE! MANY THANKS FOR ALL THE SUGGESTIONS WHICH HAVE MADE THIS A COMPREHENSIVE AND INSIGHTFUL PROJECT.
