Tuning Into Tunis. By Uncle Monty.
Sweet & Sour Sousse. By Uncle Monty.
(After being evacuated yesterday from Tunisia during the nationwide uprising against President Ben Ali and his long-time gangsters, I arrived back at homebase somewhat safely after being stranded at the capital of Tunis for a few days with occasional bulletz whizzing past my old Anglican head just two days before my birthday. The two stories of Tunis and Sousse were written inside Tunisia during the huge street protests and open killings by the vicious riot police as Ben Ali fled the country and abandoned it for his own safety while presumably taking with him millions of dollars in his big corrupt pockets ... All's well for me right now, thankfully! Praise The Good Lord!! Truly, Uncle Monty.
Web Stats: My new blog allaboutthebigissue started with just an handful of hits, but within the past months its grown to more than 500 hits. While 500 hits isn't much compared to other long standing blogs, I am still happily surprised that such a number has grown from nothing in such a short time. This year 2011, my aim is to double and even quadruple the number of hits to my blog allaboutthebigissue. What I am finding is the growing number of disaffected Big Issue vendors and some ex-Big Issue staffers contacting me with all kinds of comments and information that is inimical to The Big Issue under the shysters brothers of Peter and John Bird. I will continue unabatedly to present stories and facts about them and to highlight all that is wrong with them and their money making exploitation of the homeless all across the UK. Now 6 months after Peter Bird had the gall and nerve to unjustly suspend me as a Big Issue vendor under his arbitrary and capricious declaration of me "bringing the Big Issue into disrepute," I am still in the battle against him until he and his brother John Bird decide to treat me right. My battle came after the Colorado cunt and bogus bishop Colin James, III - the infamous Yankee troll and the 1996 Internet Kook of the Year - contacted the Bird Brothers to unload his malicious dirt on me! Peewee Peter Bird nor his redneck bother Anthony John Bird has never given me the chance to appeal their callous decision nor have they given me or other suspended vendors any due process. All that the Bird Brothers do is to throw away the lives of vendors at their whim amd will. They are so hated it is amazing how they can still rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars each year off the backs of their vendors. The Big Issue celebrates its 20 anniversary in Sept. 2011. It is my hope that such a celebration will be a rejection by all of those who detest everything the Bird Brothers stand for. I shall here at allaboutthebigissue present special critical and biting stories to coincide with the stinking 20th Anniversary of The Big Issue. Whatever I can do to bring "disrepute" on it and its greedy Peter and John Bird I most certainly will. You can help by continuing to contact me about whatever you wish about them and The Big Issue. I have just received new details about Big Issue staffers Steve Farrell and Tom Woolock and ex-staffer John Duffy, who held the fancy post of International Business Manager for The Big Issue and quit last year despite being very close for years to redneck John Bird himself. The more I learn about the comings and goings at The Big Issue, the more worrying and disturbing are many of the details I continue to learn ... Stay tuned, my blog friends! It can only get more revealing as time goes by against the Bird Brothers. Cheerz, Uncle Monty. January 18, 2011.
