Ordnance Survey stick with St James Park

The Ordnance Survey have given assurances that Sports Direct Arena will not appear on the map:

"Newcastle Central Chi Onwurah MP has secured assurances from Ordnance Survey that they will not use the name Sports Direct Arena on their reference maps.


They will instead continue to use the name St James’ Park for the Newcastle United stadium.

Ordnance Survey has written to Ms Onwurah to confirm that St James’ Park is regarded as a significant landmark.

In their letter to Ms Onwurah they say: "For larger and more significant landmark features in private ownership, including, for example, sports arenas, Ordnance Survey will record the name identified as distinctive by the owner as ‘principal’ authority but will take into account the local useage of others in the vicinity, including the Local Authority who have a significant official interest in that locality."

Ms Onwurah said: "I am very happy that Ordnance Survey recognise the importance of St James’ Park and that they will be joining Newcastle United fans in keeping that name alive.

"I will now be writing to Google and other organisations to seek to ensure that whenever people see Newcastle on a map they see St James’ Park.""

RE: Ordnance Survey stick with St James Park

I actually had a good time in the city a few weeks back, had a nice walk about looking at some of the old buildings and the bridge. What's the bio dome looking thing across from the bridge by the way?

If I didn't give a fuck about the club I would've jumped ship when we got relegated and started supporting one of the clubs that I knew would win something.

Every fucker else? You and Carters are the only people I had a pop at.

I suppose you're going to google me now so you can find something I said 10 years ago and try getting me banned for it.

RE: Ordnance Survey stick with St James Park

To be fair to everyone from outside the NE, they should have renamed it.

With the apparent plastering of name all around the stadium, if you are from outside the area then you will know exactly where you are because you cant miss all the red white & blue.

I think people are just being selfish to be honest.

When I said every fucker else I meant everyone you think is irritating even though its just banter.

I guess google came up with nothing.

I can normally take a joke fine, I obviously just have a different sense of humor to you though as I didn't see anything humorous in what you said.

I was talking about being called a fucking irritating cunt. I couldn't find a joke in that.

Anyway,lets not bore everyone with this. If you want to call it a joke and move on so be it, if not then you can PM me.

RE: Ordnance Survey stick with St James Park

You started it saying I had to stop being an irritating cunt, now you're at it under the heading "banter".

Like I said make your mind up.

Like I said, PM me if you want to argue.

Carters isn't a bad lad, I don't mind him at all, it's just banter with him. I thought he knew that.

You I just plain up don't like.

That's all I have to say about it on here.
