Here's an idea, why no really go wi' this.
Ah mean lets start a real campaign tae huv a street named efter somebody.
fer real like! a petition an aw that.
We could start by gettin' names aroond pubs an the like an' askin folks in the street an' that.
See whit name would be maist popular and go wi that ti the cooncil. Make a demand that the folk o' Bo'ness should hae some kinda say in their big business venture.
Whit d'ye's think??

Carrier said...

Gid idea that - we kin tell the WAGs wur aff doon the Shanker n up ti Lithgi, ti, er, git oor petition signed.
In the meantime, we r no kiddn when we say thit aw the suggestions made oan this site will be sent ti the Cooncil.
