I've just been out perambulating. My meanderings led me pastone of these purpose-built "skate parks" where da yoof can hang out and impress each other with their tattoos and their "moves". [Ed: is this how they say it?]
I was kind of baffled to see a group of 15-20 very, young boys all dressed in uniform (jeans, black t-shirt, beanie) "hanging out" and "busting moves", especially since it's a school day and they all looked of a school age. Indeed, about half of them looked like they should be in primary school.
I suppose if I were to go speak to them, I'd be "shanked" or accused of kiddy-fiddling, the schools are too busy brainwashing kids about global warming to worry about truancy and the rozzers would probably have me for wasting police time.
So, what the fuck kids - enjoy the day out, your education will sadly almost certainly be none the worse for cutting class.
