This week’s cover is destined to become a collector’s item. It’s been created especially for us by the savage surrealist and shaker of the establishment Ralph Steadman. Almost fifty years ago he began collaborating with Hunter S Thompson, illustrating the fear and loathing they saw on Nixon’s campaign trail in ’72. Today, with even more fear and loathing in the air, Steadman, with his Big Issue cover, expresses the mood of a nation. Or at least 48% of it.

Readers have a chance to win an extremely limited edition signed print of the artwork by posting a picture of the cover on social media.

Everything’s changing for Keane frontman and sometime Big Issue busker Tom Chaplin so he takes us somewhere only he knows, guiding us around his local market on the banks of the Thames.

In our Letter To My Younger Self, broadcaster Mark Radcliffe recalls facing cancer without the beautiful presence of his beloved spaniel Toto.

This week’s My Pitch vendor is Richard who tells us about giving talks to kids in school.

Plus: Is it possible to cut emissions while still eating meat? Our Changemaker Jen Ang is settling the score for migrants and Jessica, a vendor from a street paper in Dortmund tells us the best things about Germany’s football capital.

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.25 and sell it on to the public for £2.50, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
