LOCAL councils are changing outdated and offensive street names. But what names would the good old British public really like? Here are some suggestions.
The public loves a bit of doley-bashing, as evidenced by Benefits Street, so would be delighted to see their prejudices officially confirmed. Big Telly Avenue, Pretending To Be Disabled Boulevard and You Know They’ve All Got iPhones Court would also be popular.
Han Solo Drive
Everyone’s sick of street names based on boring old real people, and everyone likes Star Wars. Let’s have Tauntaun Walk, Death Star Close and, for newcomers to the epic saga, K-2SO Grove.
Kentucky Fried Chicken Crescent
Britons were on the brink of insurgency when KFC branches ran out of chicken a few years ago. Clearly this greasy delicacy is a source of greater national pride than nobodies like Sir Isaac Newton, and should be honoured with street names.
No Name Street
The Brits love a laugh, so why not a humorous street name based on a U2 song? Others include Devil Gate Drive, Itchycoo Park, and Blueberry Hill. All very funny until the sign gets stolen once a fortnight minimum.
Rising House Price Road
House prices are a national obsession, whether you’re a homeowner or a millennial who will never be a homeowner unless they move somewhere shit like Stoke-on-Trent. The honesty would help newcomers to the area, and buyers in Negative Equity Street wouldn’t have any grounds to complain.
Britain has an ambiguous relationship with Hitler. On the one hand he was evil and our enemy, but on the other without him we wouldn’t have any history at all. Living on Hitler Avenue would also make it easy to remember your address.
There’s already a Princess Diana Court, so let’s move onto the UK’s latest fixation. A property in Brexit Way would be a superb investment due to all the Brexiters wanting to live there and pushing up house prices. If they’re not all unemployed and destitute by this point.
