Xtreme! Politics

August 20, 2003

Jason Whiley, an A-level politics student had a bet with his dad that modern politicians were less fun than those in days gone by. His dad's justification? He found a photo of Enoch Powell on a pogo stick. To try and settle the bet, Jason wrote to every past and present MP he could contact and asked them if they'd ever engaged in a variety of fun antics, including riding a motorised cart or a space hopper. Amazingly, many of them wrote back, and the results can be seen at Statesman or Skatesman?
