STREETS on a new housing estate have been given woke names by snowflake councillors.
They claim Diversity Grove, Equality Road, Respect Way, Destiny Road, Inspire Avenue and Humanity Close reflect “core values”.
Labour-led Birmingham Council invited suggestions for a regeneration scheme in the crime-ridden suburb of Perry Barr ahead of the city’s 2022 Commonwealth Games.
But mocking locals suggested alternatives on the council’s Facebook page such as Desperation Way, Car Jack Alley and Snowflake Close.
Stephen McDonald, 43, said: “I think it isn’t very realistic or reflective but more of a publicity stunt trying to promote what a liberal society we are.”
And local Tory MP Gary Sambrook said: “Instead of celebrating the people and places that make ordinary Brummies proud, loony-left councillors have embarrassed our city with these ridiculous names.”
The names were suggested by Louise Kilbride of Handsworth Wood.
She said: “It got me thinking about street names that could in some way reflect the diversity of the Perry Barr area.”
- BLACK Boy Lane in Tottenham, North London, is to be renamed after Caribbean poet John La Rose. But locals are angry and want to keep it
