I’ve just completed the 2021 Census form and my life to date is even now being written into the nation’s history.

What country do you regard yourself as belonging to? “None” is not an option. Maybe I should have written it in.

What is you ethnic group? “None” is not an option. I write it in anyway.

Do you have 5 or more GCSEs grades A* to C or 9 to 4 or GCE grades A to C? I’ve got 7 real ‘O’ Levels. Does that count? Five of them are at grade 3 or above – does that count?

Is the gender you identify with the same as your sex registered at birth? “When did things get so complicated?” is not an option.


“Your progress has been saved”

If only.
