BOLLOCKS??



The nation is constantly informed that the data to be collected and collated from the five yearly census is confidential and not to be divulged in any way as personal information.

In 1991 in answering the ethnicity question, in a rebellious act,  I crossed out the offerings in toto and hand  wrote that I was " a native born New Zealander".
For some years following that I was personally contacted by a procession of Crats including the late Sir Paul Reeves attempting to assist me in tracing "my Iwi".
AS a citizen of Scottish heritage that might have a tad of French taint from the close connections of Scotland and France in the Catholic Huguenot contretemps allied to the troubled relations between England and Europe following Henry The Eighths split with Rome, any chance of Maori Blood was only a possibility in most exceptional geographical upheavals as those turbulent times predated  Tasman's "discovery" and the subsequent English "invasion and conquest" of New Zealand.

There was only one way the Maoriocracy discovered my supposed racial origins as interpreted by them as a potential Maori and that was the demolition of total bollocks that personal information would never be divulged.

My answers ever since have very little statistical value as cats and mice permeate my responses in an ongoing  game of chance.

PS attempts to resign have had mixed response some two and a half decades later.

This years census will be an even bigger balls up. The new system coupled with the politically loaded questions will lead to some 'interesting' results, and possible unintended results.

Asking if your home has mould and if it is 'damp' are potentially political dynamite. Those with entitlitus or political motivations may feel induced to answer yes to those questions. We'll get the story from the current incumbents that National has let the side down and created this damp home [non]crisis.

Then, will these homes have their LIM's noted they are damp homes?
