My 9 year old grandchild has entered this with a story about a pig going to the moon. I think this to be an imaginative idea for such a story. So what sort of story would you write if you were able to enter this competition? Something along the lines of a celebrity going to the moon perhaps. So which celeb. would you send to the moon and for what reason?

I think that it is a brilliant idea and I'd definitely send "The Donald"

I think I would nominate Sting and/or Bono, because they are fine examples of the way some celebrities think the fact of their fame gives them some kind of superior understanding of what the rest of us should be doing.

I would send Boris so he could meet up with the Clangers.

PS Totally agree with FE, there are plenty more like those.

Lily ALLEN without a second thought!!

I would send off the pesky canned-laughter-studio-audience on BBC Radio4's comedy shows - let's see if they think it's funny.

I can think of plenty if there is a rocket big enough for their ego's

As the moon is not capable of supporting life, even lowlife, I would send Rolf Harris and any more of his ilk!!

Sorry, just realised this is a children's short story, sorry for rant!

Brumas, none of us know whether Rolf Harris is guilty of the crimes which he has been accused. Judge not, least you be judged

  Brumas 22:55 24 Jan 2017

wee eddie, c'mon, surely you are not serious, why the heck is he locked up then? next you'll be inferring Saville was innocent!!

As for the "Judge not, least you be judged" I'll treat that with the contempt it deserves!!
