    It's disgraceful that all these politically correct name changes have been allowed to persist for so long. Change them back now before a right-winger punches someone!

    Wow, some truly indepth analysis of the street name's origins there:

    Gropec**t, the earliest known use of which is in about 1230, appears to have been derived as a compound of the words grope and c**t.

    I'm liking the fact the names represent what goes on in the street..for example.. GC says

    it was part of a collection of streets which appears to have survived as a small island of prostitution outside Southwark,
    I don't this lot would welcome tthis naming style though.
