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.

Banishing Brexit

Defeat of Zac Goldsmith in Richmond signals the 48%’s fight back is making headway

 

Some would have you believe that yesterday’s by-election in Richmond was all about Zac Goldsmith’s opposition to the expansion of Heathrow Airport. It wasn’t and in her victory Liberal Democrat Sarah Olney proved one thing – the electorate of her new constituency wanted to give two fingers to Theresa May’s “Brexit means Brexit”.

 

Despite the immensely wealthy Goldsmith being nothing other than principled and decent, we salute Olney’s victory. She has confirmed already that she’ll vote against the triggering of Article 50 and in her victory speech, she stated:

 

“The people of Richmond Park and North Kingston have sent a shockwave through this Conservative Brexit government, and our message is clear: We do not want a hard Brexit”.

 

“We do not want to be pulled out of the single market, and we will not let intolerance, division and fear win”.

 

Elsewhere, last night, UKIP lost its sole seat on Dorset County Council and thus, it seems, those opposed to Theresa May’s stupidity are moving up a gear. Sense prevailed when Gina Miller’s legal challenge was successful and it did so again last night. This movement can now only grow and we urge our readers to continue to support a return to the right road.
