Druidry is to become the first pagan practice to be given official recognition as a religion.
The Charity Commission has accepted that druids' worship of spirits arising from the natural world could be seen as a religious activity. Many Jedi masters are now waiting with baited breath to see if they will be next.
"It will be damn fine if that shizzle happens" said Sam L Windu, Grand Jedi Master, "This is exactly the kind of news we have been waiting for. Yoda and I have been working on this for a long time" and Grand Master Yoda agrees "A long time have we on this worked" stated the mini Midi-chlorian manipulatist in his inimitable slack bang way "If Druidry religion is, then Jedi soon will follow. The way of the force this is"
The order of Jedi Knights, who in less enlightened times were classed as nothing more than rebel scum, have been keeping the balance of the force in check for centuries, in a galaxy quite a long way from here and since landing on planet Earth back in 1977 have spread to become quite popular indeed, especially among teenage boys of all ages that need to get out more but like to wear costumes and fanny about with glowing swords.
