#CensusFail 2016 Census
The 9th August was set down to be Australia's 2016 Census Night. The Turnbull government have turned this into a circus.
The extraordinary fiasco of doing this online has been the brunt of endless jokes today as the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) appealed to the public that the website had been attacked by hackers and later on they reported a DDoS attack (Denial of Service). It was made clear by IT experts that Australia was not attacked by either of these at all yesterday.
All of a sudden the lies of the government have been exposed for what they are, a massive power grab against the Australian People's privacy. I and many others feel they failed. People are laughing everywhere at the farcical mess up of a great institution that has been delivering good statistics for many years with out any fuss.
Many Australian Senators are boycotting putting their names on the papers and some are boycotting it in total because it has been made into a farcical nightmare.
