Agreed Shiva, a purpose built skate park 100 yards away... I wish my protests were routinely met with such a "horrible" outcome.

It's more than just a Skate Park, though, isn't it.

'So the skateboarders have trumped the cultural progressives....in the fight for the dingy, concrete undercarriage with the hideous murals and the lovely views of the river. The proposed extension to the South Bank Centre, formed to help finance the often excellent work inside, will probably never happen....in the name of cultural preservation it will be abandoned so that thirtysomething boy-men can mount skateboards, fall off, swear, check that no one saw them and never have to pull their waistbands above their bottoms again.....what a legacy for Boris Johnson.'

Fyi. Part of an article by Alex O'Connell, writing in the arts section of the Times today.

The skaters I usually see there are nowhere near thirtysomething, but maybe Alex prefers anti-establishment iconoclasts like these muppets to infest the Southbank in even bigger numbers.
