We're all going on a summer holiday...

Holidaymakers expect to be able to take excursions in space within nine years.

According to a survey by online travel agent sunshinehols.web 11 per cent of respondents believe it will be possible to take a holiday on the moon by 2010. Some 22 cent thought space station resorts would be operating by the same time.

Another 16 per cent reckoned there would be a Channel Tunnel-style rail link between the UK and the US.

We asked local travel agent Lee Starboard what he thought of the survey results.

"Doesn't surprise me in the least," he said. "We get some right nutters in here, I can tell you. Only last week some idiot got very annoyed when I told him there were no en-suite rooms available for families on the International Space Station!

"There's always people asking about moon trips - oh yeah, and there's the plonker who, having seen some movie or other, said although he knew he wouldn't be allowed to interfere with history, he'd really like to go back in time and 'have a quiet word with Mr and Mrs Hitler!'"

A PollsRUs survey commissioned by EIF News & Features suggested that local people are a little more cynical about the possibilities of space holidays.

Mr Laphroaig, who runs the garage in Cunard Way said: "Oh shove off will you? Coming round here every five minutes bothering busy people with your daft questions."

Mrs Nuala Spools, at nuumber 33, said: "Space travel? Oh no, dear - not with my brood. We can't even drive 50 yards down the road without one of them bringing up their breakfast!"
