There's no truth in the rumour that any street names are going to be changed, only one to avoid NEW names proposed by developers,with double meanings.

Whilst no existing street names are at risk, I can't believe my money is being spent analysing such a stupid non-issue. Has anyone ever complained that any street names in Lewes are offensive, or indeed anywhere, and been taken seriously? The thought that Cllr Gardiner and his friends have spent time trying to see inuendo, and blatent rudery, like teenagers looking up rude surnames in a phone book, is proposterously silly.
"Oooh LOOK Mr Frost, its JUGGS! lane, gedditt!, JUGGS, as in 'titties', not something you put water in, Ph-nar, Ph-nar"
"No wait, Cllr Gardiner, this one says COCKshutt!!!!!!, tee hee, that is a 'willy', although it is also a bird mentioned in the New Testament"
"Ooh, you are awful, Mr Frost, but this one's bad, its 'Water-GA-te' lane, as in 'homosexual', and look here, its the town of LEW-es as in a lavatory where I do my tiddliwinks"
It is hardly surprising these idiots keep making so many Planning mistakes.

It has been suggested that the anti alcohol lobby are declaring their interests in street names of Lewes, due to the fact that The Elly is labelled Abinger Place.

Did the culture of self-aggrandising 'grief' begin with Lady Di's death or has it always been around. more
