Our bumper Christmas specials begin next week so who better to be on the first cover than someone whose name literally means Christmas?

Noel Gallagher lets rip on Brexit, shares his thoughts on Boris and Jeremy – and also someone called Liam. It’s quite explosive. Don’t get excited about an Oasis reunion just yet…

More politicians are backing the Big Issue Future Generations pledge ahead of the general election, while Peter Pomerantsev guides us through the political mire where nothing seems real.

Also inside…

- BONG! This week’s Letter To My Younger Self is newsreader Sir Trevor McDonald. We’ve also asked vendors to offer advice to their younger selves.
- Karen Gillan starred in Avengers: Endgame, which became the highest grossing film ever this year, but she’s gone back to her roots writing, directing and starring in The Party’s Just Beginning
- Operation Yellowhammer was the codename for the government’s leaked No Deal Brexit report. Why was it named after a bird? What does that have to do with Christmas? All those questions and more revealed!
- This week’s My Pitch vendor is Donna in Exeter who sells at the Christmas market
Plus: Are Greggs making diet doughnuts to aid weight loss?

Finally, we’re getting close to the deadline for kids cover competition entries. If you know any young artists or youth groups who might like to enter, tell them all about it!


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.
