John Bird is the founder and proprietor of The Big Issue. It was set up by Bird and Gordon Roddick in 1991. The Big Issue remains committed to allowing the poorest in society a means to helping themselves earn a living. It’s a hand up not a hand out. It’s also an award winning, establishment shaking voice for the outsider. And some cracking big interviews.
