But… what’s the “blank” question all about? What should the government be asking us here? “When was the last time you got drunk?” “How many junk mails from a well-known dodgy estate agent have you binned in the past month?” “What is the Big Society?” “Are you planning to bugger off for the royal wedding/ Olympics?” “Can we come along too?” Strange. Have you got any ideas?
I was actually planning on being away on census night, which I think would mean I’d get counted twice, excitingly enough. Sadly, it looks like those plans are falling through, dashing my idle thoughts of becoming a statistical quirk for future historians to puzzle over.
