I said they could sell WAY more if I could get close enough to the magazine to see what was in it. Unfortunately, I get put off by 'Beeg Eeesoo Pleese'. It could be fantastic, if only they had a stall or something.

the woman who sells it back in my hometown, is just plain mean, which is hardly the best way to sell your wares.
people don't really sell the Big Issue, but rather carry one battered old copy round and beg.
It fucks me off because like everyone else I know how it should operate and recognise it as a good thing.
