Fear And Proroguing Mug

This week’s cover is destined to become a collector’s item. It’s been created especially for us by the savage surrealist and shaker of the establishment Ralph Steadman. Almost fifty years ago he began collaborating with Hunter S Thompson, illustrating the fear and loathing they saw on Nixon’s campaign trail in ’72. Today, with even more fear and loathing in the air, Steadman, with his Big Issue cover, expresses the mood of a nation. Or at least 48% of it.

Featuring this exclusive cover design you can enjoy a cuppa with the knowledge that your purchase has made a difference, supporting The Big Issue's mission to dismantle poverty.

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 £1.25 and sell it on to the public for £2.50, 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.
