Prats of The Week - Geoplace

Kudos to Geoplace (a local government quango that oversees the official database of addresses used by councils and emergency services) for winning my prestigious Prats of The Week Award.

For why have they been thusly honoured?

Geoplace have told councils that streets should no longer be named after local heroes - including fallen soldiers - in case they are later linked to "inappropriate activities".

The edict comes after hundreds of streets, footpaths and plaques named after Jimmy Savile had to be altered when he was exposed as a child abuser.

Nanny's chums in the Local Government Association have defended the decision, arguing it would save taxpayers' money in the future.

The idea is of course utter bollocks, as it would mean that streets can never be named after anyone ever again.

Also, for good measure, councils have also been asked to ban the word “the” from all new place names on the grounds that it  causes confusion and lengthy delays for the emergency services.

Geoplace, well deserving Prats of The Week!

    'Terrible Journalism of the Week Award' goes to Ken Frost at Nanny Knows Best and all the other journalists that didn't bother to look into the facts on this story.
    If you did your job properly, you would have read the documents around this. Geoplace ADVISE local authorities to have a published Street Naming and Numbering Policy which should take 'into consideration' the use of peoples names in street names for good reasons (saving public money on possible renaming would seem to be a pretty good reason). The advice states that authorities ultimately and legally have the decision on street naming policy and individual street names - it is not an 'edict' or that peoples names can never be used in street names as you report. It is down to individual authorities and the ADVICE is simply given to highlight the issue to them.
    Getting your facts right before publishing your rubbish is surely advice written by the press standards authorities... you seem to have taken that as only advice….
