Now For.

Now For My Holidayz.

I'm taking a summer break from my blogz, which includes
this one at allaboutthebigissue. I'll be away for a couple
or so weekz unless something dramatically happens. For
instance, if Pigface John Bird should suddenly drop dead or
there's a rowdy staff walkout against The Big Issue or prick
Peter Bird gets in a bad brawl with some vendors, then if
 I know I will then be back at my laptop to report such at
wherever in the world I might happen to be during my 
much needed summer holidayz. Such couldn't have
come at a better time after all of that vile black scum
and white foreign trash went rioting and looting in
London, and elsewhere in Bloody Sick Britain,
for four days of hell and mayhem and beyond ...
Some 3,000 of them, from different parts of  Britain,
 have so far been charged before the courts. For many
of them it will be a "Badge of Honour" to have done
 what they have done. So expect more trouble from
 their violent type in the coming future inside the UK.
At London's Pentonville Prison, of the more than
1,200 inmates there almost 80% are black, mixed
race and foreigners, reports Martin Bentham of ES.
But for the time being, however, I am at least far
away enough from such a bloody mess, thankfully.

 Here at Paris I have now greeted Contessa Maria on
 her arrival from Scottsdale, AZwith her new nurse in
tow to ensure she's taken care of healthwise. Otherwise,
 dear Maria is her usual self and is rearing to go although
abit more frail than the last time we got together at Tripoli
 and Tunis at the start of the New Year, 2011.  So
 together, we now go on our latest holidayz to one
of the world's greatest treasures - The Senegeti.
At The Magical & Wonderful Serengeti.
Holidayz. By Uncle Monty.
To be soon standing in the middle of The Serengeti is by
far alot more fascinating and exciting than standing in the
middle of some drab and boring English seaside town
like crummy Southend-on-Sea. And to also say to be
standing in the middle of Paris at Champ de Mars -
right in the shadow of The Eiffel Tower - watching and
recording homeless footballers from 63 countries com-
peting at the upcoming 2011 World Homeless Cup, is
 by far more interesting and fulfilling than watching an
exploited bunch of poor Big Issue vendors flogging the
same tiresome Bird mag in the middle of London's
cold Holborn.
Outside of Holborn Sainbury's - An
Official Vendor, Woooooooooooooow!
The refrain this year is that going outside of England
to holiday is much too expensive during the present
national economic crunch  in the UK. As I've said
elsewhere, I've yet to find reasonably priced hotel
accommodation and holiday packages inside
England. Rip-off prices are everywhere at Blighty,
even when we're told they're discounted!! For,
myself, I have alwayz found much cheaper prices
when travelling and holidaying abroad compared to
 the British Isles.  Not that I need worry, one way or
 the other, with Contessa Maria usually and kindly
 taking care of most of my travel expenses when
travelling with her. By the way, she's delighted
I'm no longer a Big Issue vendor since she didn't
like me selling out on the streets. Plus, she thinks
the Bird Brothers are absolute cads. "You can do
without those dreadful creatures in your life, Monty
 dear," says Maria so pointedly about John &
Peter Bird. She saw John Bird once and took an in-
stant dislike toward him and has done so ever since.

Nice Holiday, Uncle Monty.

Grace: How Amazing She Is.  By Uncle Monty.
I have been amazed at the number of e-mails I've
gotten for dear Grace Robertson after her two articles
were posted on this blog herein. I have promptly passed
 on to her all such messages received for her.  I hope I
can get Grace to write more for us all to read and enjoy.
 She's a great lady and an imaginative writer with strong
opinions that she doesn't hesitate to state. Folkz with
strong views, even if I disagree with them, are usually
 welcome in my book. And Grace Robertson is cer-
tainly one person I always welcome with open arms.
 We'll get together again after my summer holidayz
 for another of our in-depth chitchats and at our
first class lunch set next for early October.
Toodaloo for now, Uncle Monty..

Big Changes At The Big Issue.
By Garnet Roach.
Comments By Uncle Monty.
Graphics & Photos By Alex Albion.
The Big Issue has revealed a raft of changes at the magazine
 including outsourcing services to Dennis Publishing and
creating a new, nationwide edition.
The new partnership deal will see Dennis - publishers of magazines
including MacUser, Viz, Auto Express and Bizarre - take over a
 number of services for the magazine such as subbing, design and
 production. This marks a big change for the magazine, which
has always functioned as a not-for-profit organisation, though
 it stressed that plans would “only serve to benefit vendors”.
Lara McCullagh, spokeswoman for the magazine, said: “Our ability
 to support our vendors will only be enhanced via this partnership”.
But as well as a number of editorial duties, Dennis Publishing will
also be taking over responsibility for generating advertising for
the magazine, previously a source of finance for The Big Issue.
The magazine wouldn’t reveal details of the deal, or of how any
 advertising revenue might be divided up between the companies.
With a falling readership and a recession in full swing, it would be
interesting to see how the magazine could improve profits by
taking up with Dennis - owned by Felix Dennis, worth £500
million and ranked 134th in the Sunday Times Rich List.
“The specifics of the contractual arrangement are not available,”
said Ms McCullagh, “However, we would assure all interested
parties that The Big Issue aims to increase its profitability,
thereby protecting its ability to support vendors.” She added
that the move would result in only “minimal” job cuts - but
any affected staff will be transferred to Dennis, which will
then carry out a “review of its requirements”.
“It is expected that the vast majority of staff will find a role
and all possible measures are being taken to minimise job
 losses,” said Ms McCullagh.
The Big Issue will also start publishing a new-look national
edition, rather than five separate regional magazines, with a
 combined push to take the magazine online. The new UK
edition will be run from Glasgow with Paul McNamee, the
 existing Scotland editor, in charge. The regional issues had
 lacked consistency in the past, McNamee told the Press
Gazette. “It’s unhelpful for our readers and it doesn’t
help our vendors.
“We always shared some copy, but with the bigger features
there’s been a huge variation in the tone and content,” he said.
“It makes sense to have a coherent, unified, single magazine.”
The Big Issue launched 20 years ago in a bid to offer homeless
 people “a hand up not a hand out”, with today’s 3,000 vendors
 buying the magazine for £1, and selling it for £2 to make a profit.
But circulation and readership numbers have dropped in recent
 years, falling from just under 250,000 a decade ago to a weekly
circulation of 136, 018 in 2009.
It also lost more than £400,000 in the year ending March 2010
 and over £386,000 the previous year. However, Ms McCullagh 
said:  “Even when the company has run at a loss, it has still
succeeded in its primary aim of putting millions of pounds
annually into the pockets of homeless people.”
According to the magazine, it helped homeless people earn
  £8 million last year. This comes at a time of change for the
company, including a digital drive and a plan to equip vendors
 with iPhones in order to help them become “local reporters”
 and learn new skills. But with vendors making their money by
selling the magazine on the streets, how would the digitalisation
of the Big Issue affect their profits - and their ability to earn
cash? “As a social enterprise, The Big Issue’s primary
focus is to provide homeless people with the means to earn
an income,” concluded Ms McCullagh. “We won’t go online
and cut vendors out. We would not contemplate any
 development which sidelines vendors or
 threatens streets sales.”
Co-founder John Bird said in a statement: “The decision to
amalmate the regional editions of the magazine and to create
one unified UK edition was taken to enable greater efficiency
and the best use of our skill set. “The move will also free up
resources, allowing us to focus of new ventures, including
development of a digital platform.”
Changes To Benefit The Greedy Bird Gang,
 Not The Big Issue Vendors You Can Bet.
Comments By Uncle Monty.
The above piece is posted here at
allaboutthebigissue for those many of you who
 may have missed the rather informative and revealing 
July article by Garnet Roach at The Pavement  magazine
on the big changes at The Big Issue. Whatever has or
has not happened there you can bet your bottom dollar
that pigface Anthony John Bird and his Big Issue hench-
men have cleaned up on any business deal that was made
 most probably without staff consultation before hand
and certainly not with any kind of vendor representative
to have any kind of input regarding the future of Bird's
selfish enterprise. Essentially, pigface Bird holds no
loyalty to anybody, including his staff, when it comes
 to him walking over anybody in his wake. He's done
that to other Big Issue editorial staff before without
a care in world for those he threw out. Bird is a
bastard at best. He's now moving into full retire-
ment while cleaning up on perks, bonuses, and
 pension set for him to live cosily forever after
 and to feed his 5 kidz from 3 marriages, I guess.
So while we're talking about pigface, some folkz have
been asking me of late why I call him "Pigface Anthony
John Bird." Well, my answer is plain and simple:
And that he's been doing for the past 20 years with
the start of Anita & Gordon Roddick giving him
bags of money to co-found The Big Issue in 1991
 to the present time of him, pigface Bird, still  banking
 big bucks as he still freely pigs of the homeless as the
UK's so-called "Homeless Guru." A lost monkey
 knows more about real homelessness today
than Bird will ever know ...
Images of Pigface Bird & Peter Prick.
As for the future of The Big Issue, it looks rather
dicey I must say no matter how they serve it up to
the public and their vendors with its usual bullshit
PR. Next, I can see The Big Issue HQ building
being sold, too. I'm told it's worth 4.8 million quid.
While impending staff cuts go ahead with deliber-
ate acts of concealment going on as to the true
 rot of what is really going on inside The Big Issue 
under Bird, who has also wasted untold amounts
of charity money and valuable resources due to his
 psychotic greed and avarice and skillless gross mis-
mangement, too, over many years. No doubt the 
pigface's little prick brother Peter Bird has also
helped in the rot by being vastly out of his depth for
 quite sometime as the inept gatekeeper at The Big
 Issue London HQ during the regular absence of his
pigface brother now living it up near Cambridge
 like a disreputable editorial jerk!
If the claim that The Big Issue has put millions of quids
 in the pocket of its homeless vendors, then how many
more millions has The Big Issue made off them under
the greedy eye of Anthony John Bird?  Along with
the backing of his rich pals like Nigel Kershaw and
James Caan, and other fat catz, standing in the wings?
"I wonder as I wander," as the Yankee Christmas 
carol says. As for Lara McCullagh's statement
that vendors will NOT be cut out in the future, I
think there is little doubt that they will eventually
be cut out by one way or another - period!
So, so much for The Big Issue right now and I'll be
reporting more as the days get nearer to its unless 20th
Anniversary that makes me and others want to puke
and spew all over both the pigface and the prick.
Cherrio then for now, Uncle Monty.

Re the ghastly horrible Mrs. DAME Shirley Porter.
She and Mrs. Margaret Thatcher are a right pair. I met
 her fairly soon after I returned to UK so that was 24 years
ago. It was a meeting about an organisation which appears
 to have disappeared. She was of extremely strong Jewish
 appearance. The dreadful bit.............I was heavily involved
 in raising money re War on Want because it was about a
cause extremely dear to my  heart......homelessness. As
 far as I remember she spoke really quite movingly
about her involvement in helping this group.
 It was some time before I discovered............it became
public knowledge........that was in fact SELLING houses
destined for the homeless. Needless to say she fled to
Israel and, if she has returned here which I didn't know,
it's no gain to UK although with all this current hideous
criminal behaviour being exposed re hacking maybe she
 should feel right at home. I have always felt such strong
 faith in the Police......I am saddened beyond belief to
 hear that they're so easily bought. This country is truly
becoming more and more of a pit.....it has definitely
deteriorated since I came here 24 years ago. The
downslide appears to be gaining momentum, too.
Shameless Lady Shirley Porter.
Grace Without A Title Is Still A Real Lady!!
I never read the Big Issue although I always give the people
 begging £1. It's easy to try to decide if they really need it
or not but one has simply no way of knowing....... I regret
never even having the time to read a newspaper and it is
so many years I sat down and actually read a book that
I fear I may be semi literate by now.
I've come to the conclusion that there are comparatively
few genuine organisations "helping" either the handicapped
or the homeless. All too many seem to be in it for themselves
and one could go round the bend just trying to fathom it all.
Another thing I realised shortly after coming to UK was
that if I made my objections/criticisms too vocal, I'd suffer
 as a result. Oh yes we are certainly in a Police state.
I'm grieved to read what your opinion of John Bird and
brother is and I am sure you represent others who feel
the same about them. The more I hear of charities here
re both homeless and handicapped the more amazed
 and sick I become.
Grace The Nice and Witty Scottish Lady Listening
To Uncle Monty's Public Condemnation of the Bird
Bothers At Lunch Gathering of St. Andrew's.
I've only been in here where I am five years and from the
 minute i arrived here I've been trying to move to Grove Park
where I lived for 12 years about 1988 to 2000 more or less.
Try as i might I could not manage to move back there and
 really only in the very recent past have realised Our
Lord means I should remain here.
(Living in) an extremely wealthy borough is also extremely mean
on compassion and care for such people who are homeless or
 mentally hadicapped. Wealth and meanness go together I think.
The saddest thing in my entire life is the fact that I am
stuck till death in this pit (at where I live.) I learnt to hate
Britain way back when I was 20 and living in Germany
as part of the Army of the Occupation. I had been brain-
washed all my childhood about Britain being so utterly
wonderful. I nearly flipped when I saw the Council
housing in Germany. All of us women were billeted in
blocks of one bedroom flat in places never bombed.
I could not believe my eyes........cavity wall insulation,
double glazing, central heating, under sink waste
disposal..........All this had been built in the 30s. To
this day we have no equivalent socially affordable
 housing of such standards, 70 years after those
flats were built.
Anyway, this has meant I am only very recently settling myself
in here.....almost as though i had just moved here recently. I've
been doing blitzing on my mountain of paper work and other
 things in my home. I was totally blessed quite recently in man-
aging AT LAST to find a suitable handyman for the pile of
odd jobs which had piled up. I am hugely pleased with him.
My friend in Grove Park has had the same problem.....both
of us literally running ourselves into the ground trying to find
a decent guy for odd jobs. We're equally disadvantaged in
 not knowing one single man between us. Or find someone
who talks about news.......blessings....... It's absolutely nuts
but that we are almost forbidden to talk with the men in our
respective churches. Talk about boneheads. At our age could
we conceivably be looking for romantic attachments???????
We're only in our 80's ...
Are U So Sure? Homelessness Is Not A Crime!
You know housing has always been used as a weapon
here. As a generation before (most of you) I can assure
you of this. I was even aware of it in Scotland when I
was a child living in a tenement building, sharing a
toilet with four other families. The English, and it is
mainly the English rather than British, put out the
 idea that if one does not own property it makes one
socially low class. This is the cleverest idea ever
invented since the pathetic English are so appal-
lingly concerned with this "class" business.
Apparently Britain holds more people living in
property they own or are buying than any other
country in the civilised world. It's all
about this "class" eyewash.
I wrote to the Prime Minister (David Cameron) but
the Murdoch thing was still blazing across the news so
 perhaps my complaints loom rather small in comparison.
It is very obvious that his judgement in engaging Andy
Coulson was sadly at fault don't you think ? Cameron
is a man of minute experience.........Too young to have
so much power. I was continuously amused or rather
BEmused by the constant reiteration from the two
Murdochs (Rupert & James) as to how little they
 knew about ANYTHING. They painted themselves
so underinformed that I began to wonder what was
the point of all the back door visiting by them to
various politicians of various shades and hues. One
began to think they must have been arranging all these
 oh so secret meetings to discuss the latest moves in
Scrabble. It did not take long for both Murdochs to
 melt off into the bright blue yonder did it. It is being
 said they will be back to answer whatever however
I am very sure this will depend heavily on the amount
of the backhander involved. One can only be thankful
 to God for the privilege we have of being small and
insignificant in the world. That fact is precious as
rubies and long may it continue for me at least.
Anonymity is marvellous.
But Always Give To Street Vendor ...
I think it was a week ago yesterday or was it a fortnight
 ago yesterday. A week passes like five minutes. Fell off my
 steps while pushing an electrical plug into a high point on the
wall. It's for charging batteries (for my four-wheel mobility).
 No idea why previous tenant made it so high or maybe it was
 the tenant before that. I like it because it lights up while char-
ging and, being high, I can see when the batteries are cooked.
 It was a Sat I fell off and I discovered something I didn't know,
namely that one cannot get a doctor from surgery on Sats.
Through a circuitous route I found the District Nurse. When
I fell, I fell onto the metal rim between kitchen and passage
and had a very deep cut which was simply spurting blood.
 She came to me some four times, and I enjoyed her hugely.
Irish. She is going to drop in when in the area which
I will welcome. I really took to her.
I think this is how one feels when one is "stoned".
All in all, I managed about one hour of sleep.
 Not to worry. Bye for now,
Grace Robertson.
