"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Census 2011 Hacked

So, despite government assurances that there wasn't the slightest chance of the data being compromised, here we are, barely three months later:

Hackers steal entire 2011 census

If the LulzSec hackers really have got the UK Census... we're in big trouble

We seem to stumble from one grossly incompetent government to another. Red Tory or Blue Labour makes no difference; you can't put a lighted candle between them and their worthless policies.

If this is true there's no telling how much damage can be done. I'd like to feel sorry for all those who obeyed the government and trusted the state with their private information but, really, I can't ...

UPDATE: Well, I did say if the story was true - Lulz has issued a denial. Truth/lies; black/white; war/peace - who knows?
