In the course of doing some actual work, I have just been reminded of the campaign (at the time of the 2001 Census) to get "Jedi" recognised as an official religion.

I know you will be as comforted as I am by the knowledge that there are around 3059 Jedi in Southwark - some 1.2% of the borough's total population - making it the 27th largest concentration of Jedis in the country.

Death Stars and evil tyrants take note....

Whereas Lambeth has 4,745 of their co-religionists, constituting 1.8% of my fellow Lambethans - the 6th highest concentration in the country. What I found even more puzzling was the even larger number in Wandsworth, not noted for its student population.

I too proclaimed on the census that my religion was Jedi, although at the time I was living in Worcester (which was 100th)

strong the force was with me then.

Slightly off topic am I, but pleased also was I with the discovery that possible it is for to obtain an in-plug for MSN Messenger translating it is all typed speech into that of Yoda when posting. Confused my mother was upon first use...

Sedgefield is practically at the bottom, yet we know they have a sense of humour.

slightly strange, is it not, that Jedi seems to be a recognised "religion", and yet paganism, practically the oldest religion of all does not.

Wasn't the purpose of the campaign for people to put down Jedi as their religion to get it recognised as such? Something to do with a religion having to have 10,000 members to be recognised (the exact figure escapes me).
