What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

A Blairing Error

Tony Blair should not tie himself to the coattails of Donald Trump; it’ll only make him even more unpopular

 

Tony Blair – a man worth an estimated £60 million – recently nearly redeemed himself by speaking sense about Brexit but if reports in today’s Mail on Sunday are to be believed, he’s now reverted to his self-serving ways of old.

 

According to the newspaper’s political editor, Simon Walters, Blair has met Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, three times since September and is attempting “to become a Middle East peace envoy” in the capacity of acting as an “advisor” to the 45th President of the United States of America. A “well placed source” remarked: “Blair has been pitching hard for this job and Trump’s people are taking him very seriously”.

 

Blair, whose previous claims of having no intention of making a political comeback now look to be utterly false, cannot be blamed for not wanting to sit on the sidelines. Life in retirement most probably doesn’t suit him, but, aside from illustrating utterly no loyalty to his old cronies the Clintons, in trying to get in with Trump he only shows himself as someone willing to sacrifice his principles in order to sit with a clan of brash billionaires and bullies.

 

Mr Blair would do well to remember what previously took his popularity south were such things as the behaviour of his grasping, money obsessed wife and his toadying loyalty to President George W. Bush. He should realise that Trump can only bring him worse ratings and he should step away from the most unstable man ever to occupy the White House.

  1. Tony Blair could redeem himself by sorting out the Middle East and you dare to criticize him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do you spread false news about this man when he is aiming to do help the best president America has ever had?????????????? You should be supporting your former leader!!!!!!!!! Shame on you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. My personal view is that Tony Bliar, not a typo, is a war criminal. And his domestic acts weren’t much better e.g. bringing his dishonest buddies, David Blunkett and the ghastly Peter Mandelson, back into positions of power after they’d each had not one but two incidents of wrong doing.
    He surely can’t think he can solve the Middle East problems, I mean, he had his chance when he was PM. So his attempts at interfering now have to be thwarted. Them’s MY thoughts.

  3. A lie travels so quickly around the world while the truth ambles behind because so many people open doors and give rides to the lie. Some of them do so out of sheer stupidity, while others are willing the lie to succeed. Lies are usually facile, simple things. If you think the answer to a question as complicated as “what went wrong with Iraq” is simple, it is a sure sign that you do not comprehend the question. It is not possible for many people to treat Tony Blair with either good faith, or even neutrality.
