War heroes not honoured because of their names...

Our local council agreed to honour Stamford's fallen in the Second World War by naming new roads after six of them...

But after much debate, only four will be remembered.

It's finally been decided that the name Green is too common...and the name Titman on a street sign would only get vandalised!

Crazy.

Full story: Stamford Mercury.

The solution is simplicity itself.

You name it Alfred Green Street (or whichever it is) rather than Green Street.

As for a very slight 'Tit' innuendo, the same treatment would dilute it almost to zero.

Think of what the good people of Scunthorpe have to put up with.
