Balanced argument on Telegraph Hill

Daniel: When do I learn how to punch?
Miyagi: Better learn balance. Balance is key. Balance good, karate good. Everything good. Balance bad, better pack up, go home. Understand?

The campaigners for a skate area in Telegraph Hill lower park (SPAG) have used the no-campaigners' weight and momentum against them, turning on the charm with this delicious new poster that flips all these arguments on their heads.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, @dpsawney pointed out this story from Dorchester, where the installation of a skatepark last year has been followed by a 33% drop in reports in antisocial behaviour. The report says:

The £200,000 skatepark, located at the junction of Maumbury Road and Weymouth Avenue, has earned the approval of Inspector Les Fry, Dorchester police section commander, who said: “This reduction is a tremendous result for the town and shows the real value of having such a good facility. The young people are extremely good at policing it themselves.
