Census 2011: Gallifrey Rises!
In March 2011 in the UK, the population will have the opportunity to divulge its deepest and darkest secrets to the government history as the once-a-decade census takes place. With this comes the oppportunity to show your love for Doctor Who…
A Facebook campaign has been launched to persuade Doctor Who fans to specify their religion as “Time Lord” – and they would be in good company if they did!
Back in 2001 there was a concerted campaign by Star Wars fans in England, Wales and Scotland to persuade pepole to specify their religion as “Jedi”.
As a result of this, Jedis became the fourth highest reported “religion”, with 390,000 people in England and Wales – 0.70% of the population – claiming the ability to stack rocks.
The Facebook campaign is simple – state that you’re a Time Lord to achieve the embarrassment of Jedis and to commemorate the success and longevity of Doctor Who! (And if you’re like many of the free-thinkers here at Kasterborous, use it as a tool for subversion… not that we would condone that sort of thing, you understand…)
