And they didn't build us a skatepark anyway!

This was on the front page of the Telford Journal sometime in 1989 I reckon. I might die of shame, but you can't say I am not sharing...

Yeah, these fucktards kept promising & nothing happened for many, many years. Same over here- this was so frustrating :evil:

In the early to mid 80's our local authorities just told us to fook off because skateboarding's dead, we only wanted a cheap industrial unit to stick our half-pipe in, tight wads ! :shock: :twisted:

Yep it was an early lesson that politicians mainly like (a) talking about things (b) having meetings about things (c) announcing things and (d) being in the paper. :x

This photo tickles me though - we obviously took our skateboards to the meeting! (there were some good steps and benches outside the council offices). Also I like that the youth worker found us in the street, like we were lost little urchins! :lol:
