Great old time skaters now hold positions in the media and work in law etc and have been vocal about it and are prepared to fight for their spot but itís a bit presumptuous to say you are speaking for the majority.
Yes skaters have found a use and utilized what over wise was a grotty and pointless space but given the choice about redeveloping the site and bringing back into use all the other dead spaces that simply have never worked I would suggest a great deal of people are happy with the plans.
Is moving skaters 100 yards up the road really so bad? Itís not as if they are being cleansed from the area.
Fair enough a large interest group is battling for what they perceive is an injustice but please donít try and spin it that the silent Ďmajorityí backs you all the way as youíll be just as bad as the SBC you saying is spinning the opposite.
