Portillo Again

He's becoming tiresome on The Moral Maze (which I'll hear live this week - the dear old Univerity of Durham seems to be having a week's break from SCR functions), this time telling a Jesuit priest and clinical psychologist from Oxford that "most of your audience don't believe in God". But did the majority in so much as one ward describe itself as atheist, agnostic, humanist or of no religion at the last census? I think not.


  1. Do you really believe that 390,000 people in the UK are Jedi?

  2. If they say so. How else are we to determine these things?

    The Jedi thing really does seem to have been an Internet-spread student prank. I hardly think that seventy-two per cent of the population can be dismmised in those terms.

    Especially since anyone who has ever been to Britain knows that there is a large Christian majority here. I mean, OF COURSE there is. Who on earth would ever dispute that?
