Roll up, roll up and read all about next week’s star-studded Big Issue – guest edited by Owen Jones

With the general election bringing claim and counter-claim we wanted someone to navigate us through these confusing times. So we asked Owen Jones if he wanted to take control of The Big Issue and lasso some names who could offer new perspectives in the final days before polling.

Among those featured is revolutionary popinjay Russell Brand who disentangles his thoughts on politics and reveals whether he would run for office himself. Actor Michael Sheen offers his own prescription for saving the NHS.

Queen legend Brian May talks about his journey from pop to politics by way of badgers. Brit-award winner Paloma Faith calls for more social responsibility, pub landlord Al Murray explains why he is standing against Nigel Farage in South Thanet.

We also carry the concerns of our vendors as they call on politicians to listen to their big issues ahead of polling day, as well as much much more.

Guest editor Owen Jones said: “My hope is it’s not just a riveting read – I happen to think it is – but an issue that makes you consider your own role in building a society free of the many problems that currently afflict it.” T
