Streets on new housing estate given woke names by 'loony' councillors

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
