Issue 1278 - Tucker v Partridge

Armando Iannucci has created much of the hardwired comedy and cultural capital of Britain in the last generation. We’re delighted he guest edits The Big Issue this week and brings two of his most iconic characters head to head for the first time. Malcolm Tucker debates Brexit with Alan Partridge. It is comedy gold. It will live long in the memory. Get it here.

Also in this special edition: John Oliver and Iannucci discuss Donald Trump, the stars of This Country take on fake news, Stewart Lee has a go at fatbergs, and a Letter To My Younger Self from Susan Calman. And more.

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 £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, 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.
