25 October - 03 November 2019

In this edition of The Big Issue:-

Boo! It’s this week’s Big Issue!

If there’s something strange in your neighbourhood, or happening in politics, who you gonna call? The Big Issue!

No trick, we give readers a treat with this week’s magazine. Inside Ken Loach tells us about how economic problems aren’t evidence of capitalism failing, but instead demonstrating capitalism in action. His new film Sorry We Missed Youis out next Friday.

Last year, The Big Issue organised a meeting between Jacqueline Wilson and young care-experienced kids. They expressed disappointment that Tracy Beaker grew up to be a young single mother living on a council estate. Their desire to see Tracy have the happy ending they all hoped for inspired Wilson’s new book, which is dedicated to these children, and the multi-million selling author writes about how the Big Issue article influenced her storytelling.
