On how this government "works".
1. Destroy the census for ideological reasons.
2. Have one of your major constituencies tell you in no uncertain terms it needs reliable data.
3. Scramble about, looking for a way to collect the data, without upsetting the "fallout shelter" base of the party.
4. Seriously consider the most secretive way possible to collect the data, a method that makes the mandatory census method look like a mild intrusion of privacy by comparison. On the other hand, it is done in secret and so the boys in the shelters are not distracted from howling about people wearing veils while voting.
That is our government at work. Makes me proud.
