Best and Worst according to youngsters

According to 1500 children under the age of 10 interviewed for a recent study, being rich and famous is more important than God.

The poll ranked "God" as their tenth favorite thing in the world, with celebrity, "good looks" and being rich at one, two and three respectively.

God did come top again this year as the most famous "person" in the world, beating US President George Bush into second place.

Meanwhile "killing" and "wars" head the list of the "very worst things in the world", followed by drunks, bullies, illness, smoking, stealing, divorce and being fat. Dying is in tenth place.

When asked what rules they would make if they were king or queen of the world, the number one response from the under-10s was to ban knives and guns. They would also put a stop to fighting and killing, telling lies, drugs, bullying, drunks, and smoking. The children who answered the survey would also put a stop to stealing, but wanted more holidays and more hospitals.

Here is a sample of some of the survey's results:
