Council abandons plans to name path Hitlers Walk

A seaside holiday town's plan to call a road Hitler's Walk has been scrapped after it sparked outrage.
Mevagissey council in Cornwall has abandoned the idea after it drew protests from across Britain.
The Jewish community had called on holidaymakers to boycott the town if the scheme went ahead.
Mevagissey is on the tourist trail, visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists a year, and the loss of income would have been crippling.
Councillors say the road has been called Hitler's Walk unofficially by locals for decades – not in memory of Adolf Hitler, but after 'overzealous local park warden' Wright Harris who used to strut around in the 1930s.
There used to be a sign saying Hitler's Walk but it was removed in 2005 after complaints that it was inappropriate.
Recently the council requested a new one to put up but have now cancelled the order.

Oh FFS, that's about the most politically incorrect thing I've read in ages. Did they think that somehow that would not be offensive?

FFS! Sure it's pc incorrect, but sucks to have been named Adolf or Hitler. The Nazis ruined many good things, like the svastika. sad2.gif

Oh come on.

As if Roosevelt (and his elite handlers), The British Crown and Curchill
or Joseph Stalin were any ğkking better, represented anything less

C'mon, now.

Don't question the correctness of this unfortunate mishap.
