If, as stated, Colchester Council decided not to name the new roads off of Axial Way after Colchester United players they could have chosen more appropriate names than Destination Drive, Inspiration Avenue and Culture Close, which are supposed to reflect the council inspiration for the forthcoming Northern Gateway.

For example: Procrastination Drive, appropriately a cul-de-sac, is a name that would show how, such as in the case of the garden communities, High Street pedestrianisation etc councillors are prone to leaving things that should be done until later or until they can wangle a way round it.

Constipation Avenue would reflect how even though councillors are fed a healthy variety of ideas, many, such as Vineyard Gate, seem to get stuck and never pass through to completion.

Culture Close strangely enough is probably the only road that is appropriately named because every time any valid protest is made about how student accommodation being built in the cultural quarter is inappropriate councillors close their ears.

You could be forgiven for thinking that some councillors spend there time continually watching the film Field of Dreams, building their philosophy about the student accommodation on the often misquoted line: “If you build it, they will come."

They are of course not talking about baseball players but left wing/liberal voters.
