"for the last two years I've had 7 changes of address. It really does seem to be a massively intrusive waste of my time to register all of these addresses with the government, particularly when some of them only apply for a few weeks."

I suspect some of the Whitehall policy wonks find it hard to understand that not everyone lives what you might call a "settled" lifestyle, and that the idea of having to shift home and workplace fairly often, for all sorts of entirely legitimate reasons, is outside their experience. Just like they probably find it hard to imagine the very many other ways in which this stupid legislation will make real people's lives difficult, because they themselves will be largely insulated from its effects.
