(not satire!)

Tory councillors in Thatcher’s former constituency of Finchley and Barnet were convinced there would be plenty of residents willing to volunteer to have their street renamed after the former PM.

A year ago, Tory-controlled Barnet Council leader Richard Cornelius said:

There must be a road full of Tories. We are looking for one to come forward.

But a year later there has not been one application for the name change:

Anyone fancy living in Margaret Thatcher Way?

You can’t blame Barnet residents.

Imagine what naming your street after a close friend of paedophile Jimmy Savile would do to property prices?
