I was listening to 5 live in the car today and a caller pointed out
that in the census, it takes 20,000 people to make a religion official
and rather than use his usual "agnostic" box, he was going to put down
"Jedi".

This is a Good Thing :-)

Spread the word.

I never said it was original :-) And it sounds like the guy who is
running the UK census is possibly the one who did the Kiwi one.
