I dub thee Lord Vader of Sussex

Star Wars villain, Darth Vader, the Sith Lord and father of Mark Hamill, is to receive his peerage next week after years in the political wilderness, and will take his seat in the House of Lords.

Vader, real name Anakin Skywalker, is the principal antagonist in George Lucas' original trilogy, and is known as 'Dark Lord of the Sith'.

Like many of the members of the House of Lords, he is a really nasty piece of work.

The Sith Lord is rumoured to have several radical ideas on some aspects of the Law, and is eager to Force through changes as soon as possible, despite having no experience of British society or politics.

Asked how he would overcome this lack of experience, James Earl Jones, Vader's spokesman, said:

"I find your lack of faith disturbing."
