In ‘Taxing Times’, Michael Epis delves into one of the most important, and most confusing, issues of the upcoming election; Helen Razer flounders in a sea of choices; The Living End keeps on living, with their new album Shift; and in Roving Eye, former editor Alan Attwood farewells Lonsdale Street, the Melbourne office The Big Issue magazine has called home for 20 years.
Tau from Canberra stars in the Vendor Profile this edition. We have Streetsheet contributions from Julie and Steve in Brisbane; Daniel K and Luke M in Adelaide; Pat L and Tina from Perth; and Matthew H from Sydney. We also have a happy pelican snap taken by Melbourne vendor Stephen B while he was fishing in Williamstown.
