    Eight members of the Strathclyde Police force have listed their religion as ‘Jedi’. Local followers of the Sith have complained to the Equalities and Human Rights Commission, according to Councillor Terry Kelly, spokesperson for the Glasgow chapter of the Sith.

    (Incidentally, who does the captions for these articles? Yoda is a Jedi Master, not Knight. Typical).

      Hilarious. Or terrifying? The last thing the world needs is another religious conflict… ;-)

      We’ve got a few of them then. There is hope yet.. Episode 4 A New Hope maybe :-) Maybe they can be turned from the dark side..

      Imagine if we had a police force you could trust to carry a weapon that could cut through solid steel without them ever using it in anger.

      Maybe they could fit some smart sensors in handles of police batons. Make them glow an evil red if they get swung too fast by someone with a elevated heart rate…

      Bet there are some in Edinburgh, too - and there was a prophecy hidden in the old tongue-twister:

      “The Leith Police dis-sith-eth us”…??

      (oh dear….apologies for that)

      We used to try and jedi Police on demos sometimes. I never got it to work. It worked with the Police in Goa for some reason and they are supposed to have much more of a reputation for the dark side.

      As the Jedi Master Inspector ‘Yoda’ Truscott would doubtless say: ‘Nicked you f***ing are, me old beauty’*

      Mercifully Cllr Kelly is nothing to do with Glasgow. He’s a Paisley Buddy. As my old grannie used to say ‘did anything good ever come out of Paisley?’.
