Helping people help themselves
He talks...and talks. He’s funny, but wants to be taken seriously. He argued against voting, then urged Brits to vote for Labour. Just when you think he’s a prat, he suddenly makes sense. Australia, get ready: Russell Brand will soon be here.
Also in this issue:
Alan Attwood ponders Brand’s latest film, and how it fits into The Big Issue’s values; Fiona Scott-Norman urges us to stand up, or else be doomed to the Jason recliner; Tim Kroenert rhapsodises about Queen, 40 years after A Night at the Opera; and in Roving Eye, a heavy-metal fan (and photographer) focuses on the wild world of headbangers.
Starring in Vendor Profile this edition is Gary from Sydney. We have a special Streetsheet tribute to Melbourne vendor, Bob, who died recently. We also have contributions from Jason in Sydney; Natasha and Brett in Perth; Martin D in Brisbane; and Adrian in Adelaide. Then there’s a great picture of David S, who achieved a personal effort for his walk in this year’s City2Surf – two hours, 31 minutes.
