“Politics,” as the philosopher Belaga once said, “is just show business for ugly people.”. The fact that pictures of Leticia Boufoni, rather than Theresa May* adorn the grubby bedroom walls of equally grubby 13 year old boys probably suggests that there’s some truth in this.
And yet, we can’t escape politics. It’s everywhere. “Brexit” this, “Trump” that, “Repealing the corn laws” the other. Politics leaks into every single walk of life, and skateboarding is no different. Here are some of the best and worst politically themes skate decks of all time.
*The distinction between Theresa May with an H and Teresa May without an H is key here. One has sex for a living, the other just fucks things.
