Following on from the launch of Inspiration Mars, billionaire Dennis Tito’s project to send a middle-aged couple on a non-stop a return trip to Mars, I had to wonder who my readership would want to send (involuntarily) on this trip.

Tony and Cherie Blair?
Ed Balls and Yvette Cooper?
Chris Hunhe and Vicky Pryce?
Neil and Christine Hamilton?
John Major and Edwina Currie
David and Victoria Beckham?

Or are these all people we’d like to send on a one-way trip?

The comments section is open for further suggestions…

    You’re going to need a bigger (space) boat!

  2. Demz says:

    Richard and Judy?

  3. JuliaM says:

    It would truly be the B Ark!

    • Misanthrope Girl says:

      I suspect that that is an insult to telephone sanitisers everywhere.

  4. BrianM says:

    The RSPCA might object to sending Posh & Becks. Something about cruelty to dumb animals, I suspect.

  5. macheath says:

    Tito wants a couple who have proven sticking power – what about the Prescotts?

    He must be at a loose end having recently been passed over for both Police Commissioner and High Steward of Hull, and his radio reports from the mission would surely be pure gold…

    Rumpy-pumpy & that Ashton female with the milk-curdling face.
