There is something so provincial and so parochial about
prickhead Peter Bird one would almost expect to find
cattle instead of people at The Big Issue London HQ.
With his shirt all hanging out and his rough working
pants and his cheap rucksack in his hand, one might
almost think he was a farm hand rather than a manager-
in-charge of the £4.8 million Big Issue edifice that was
bought, no doubt, off the backs of the UK homeless
years ago by his pigface brother Anthony John
Bird, 65, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of The
Big Issue, which is sold weekly in the British Isles
by homeless street people for peanut pay while the
hideous and greedy Bird Brothers clean up with
their non-stop cash flow off the backs of such
exploited Big Issue vendors.
While doing my 1st Anniversary Protest (1AP) at
the HQ last week to mark the hateful and spiteful
suspension of me by prickhead Peter Bird, I saw
him repeatedly commit dalliance as he stood, or
repeatedly came in and out, at the HQ main door.
He first arrived at 9:00am with a PCSO cop in tow.
The prickhead himself had an air of conceitedness
and a smirk on his ugly face that only a prickhead
like Peter Bird, who is fiftysomething, could muster
without a trace of shame along with his diabolical
and callous name.
And if that wasn't enough, Peter Bird also talks and
walks like some country bumpkin despite his urban
London Paddington-rearing as a post-war child of
poor immigrant Irish Catholic stock. With his cava-
lier and cocky attitude thesedays, the prickhead
ignorantly deigned neither to acknowledge me nor
to speak to me in any civil way as he repeatedly
walked right by me with one or two of his dickhead
employees. Not that I expected any love, grace
or respect from such a shallow and selfish prick-
head, who has always been overshadowed by his
pigface brother Anthony John Bird, the so-called
"UK Homeless Guru" who knows no more about
real homelessness today than a real homeless
monkey having escaped from some zoo!!
No sign did I see of the pigface himself as I
sat for 8 hours at The Big Issue London HQ
to undergo my 1AP. Nor did I see any of
the Covent Garden vicious distribution staff
like Samantha Woodlock, and her "pretty face"
hubby Tom, Big Gob Billie Bickley and that
hack poet of their's called Steve Farrell Wood!
Nor did I see The Big Issue's super Oli Brown,
Calvin Driver, ex-tuffy John Duffy, nor what's his
name the guy who manned the vendors wanting
Big Issue stock at HQ and nor that young punk
Adam with a big chip on his shoulders. But
I saw several new faces there and a number
of regulars like stiff and cold and granny-type
Linda Driver (shown below) as she arrived at
her usual time of 8:00am to open up the HQ.
I suspect she'll soon be retiring with that
snowhite mop of granny hair on the top
of her frozen head.

Daily Stint at The Big Issue HQ.
If she and Peter Bird were a cold sight to
see again at my last Thursday morning 1AP,
then it wasn't helped by the sheer filthy mess
around the front doors of The Big Issue HQ
that looked like something out of New York's
Black Harlem with trash, fag butts, thrown away
coffee cups, soda cans, and unswept sidewalk.
The black marble slabs and the office windows
were also filthy and full of grime as if for
weeks nobody has bothered to keep things
looking nice and clean. There was no pride. It
was a dirty mess for any Big Issue visitor to see.
Hopefully, Prince William and Kate, now the
new Duchess of Cambridge, didn't happen to
visit. Such was as filthy as the hate and spite of
the Dickie Birds Peter and John that I now call
"prickhead and pigface" with my utter and
lasting contempt for them. Whatever, clean
up your filthy mess you dirty buggers!!
Vile & Sly Peter Bird:
Let Me Show Him To You Yet Again.
He lost his Big Issue vendor's badge, he told me.
From nearby Surrey, the vendor was told that he could
not have a replacement or new badge - now listen to
this - UNTIL HE OBTAINED A POLICE REPORT
for his missing badge!! I tell you, it's outrageous that
any vendor should be forced by The Big Issue to go
to the police to obtain a police report for such a
petty thing. And to waste the time of the police
on such a useless matter is just further proof of
how mindless and mean The Big Issue continues
to be against its subjugated street vendors. It
also degrades and belittles the vendor to have
to go to a police station all because of The
Big Issue's mindset to criminalize their vendors.

been suspended for two whole weeks by the same
ugly Peter Bird for having used another vendor's
pitch while the vendor was himself away!!
It sounds like what that old dead turkey John
Branagan (shown above) did to me by reporting
me for having allegedly used his National Portrait
Gallery pitch, which I didn't since I had just finished
visiting the gallery with Contessa Maria, while he
was away. I was forced to waste one whole morn-
ing going to The Big Issue Vauxhall office - with
masses of vendor files like a British cop station -
to see Paul Joseph, then in charge of vendors, all
because of such a colonic jerk like the now late
John Branagan. The Big Issue loved him and so
did stiff Linda Driver, but not me. I hated his
gutz like so many of the vendors did and still
do despite him having hopefully gone to hell
where he belongs ... Upon his alcoholic death,
at age 60, they printed a gushing obit to the
colonic jerk that made me sick to read
in No. 864 of TBI, Sept 14-20, 2oo9.
The latest vendor stories came to me as I sat at
The Big Issue HQ doing my 1AP and not even
asking such vendors to tell me such. Perhaps
18 or so vendors stopped to read my protest
sign and/or came over and freely chatted with
me. Some of them knew me from years ago
and were surprised and disgusted to know that
I had been unjustly suspended and vilely
treated by the nasty Bird Brothers, who
have become bigger than their boots and a
law unto themselves ... They suck, they do.
