What's in a name?

As I was driving around the North Circular Road through Private Eye's beloved Neasden, I came past the end of an Aboyne Road.

It crossed my mind that I don't recall seeing a Neasden Road in Aboyne, or even a Willesden Green. Indeed the only reference to anything that might be to do with England is the Low Road.

Strange that.

I'm sure the idiuots at the Daily Mail would suggest some overarching Scottish conspiracy.

Perhaps it was so named due to Scots coming down here with their funny way and strange accents and skirts and taking jobs from honest hard working Englishmen.
