Could the general election screw up the Census?

It was noted to me the other day in conversation that there might be a small problem with having the general election in March. The thing is see, we’re going to have several thousand people knocking on doors across the country on the serious business of distributing and then collecting (though that would happen in April) census forms and the last thing we would want is for them to be hunted for the doors of Ireland by people who thought they were canvassers for the election.

So remember to answer your door as while it might not be that effing politician you were expecting, it could instead be a helpful census taker who is only trying to do us all a service. And please don’t think of eating any of them.
