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.

Boycotting May

Theresa May finds an ally in Geoffrey Boycott; they’re welcome to one another

 

Theresa May appeared in India on Monday in spite of the Brexit crisis in Britain and announced she’d be welcoming high net worth individuals from that country to our shores. She mentioned nothing of the millions of aid we gave India for many years in spite of the fact that it is a country packed with billionaires.

 

Plainly showing no regard for the ordinary folk she’s meant to represent back home, this misguided and utterly out-of-touch woman was then endorsed by Geoffrey Boycott. He also happened to be in Dehli and opted to wax lyrical about a woman who is fast becoming the Gordon Brown of our generation.

 

The cricket commentator, a man Mrs May previously called herself a “fan of all my life”, remarked:

 

“She’ll be like Margaret Thatcher, she’ll be brilliant”.

 

“She’s good, she doesn’t need my advice, she’ll be fine. She’s got a few more strokes than me.”

 

“She has views and she’s strong. Life is about integrity and principles – it should be. We want politicians like that with integrity, with principles, with honesty”.

 

“She’s got the Prime Minister’s job at a very tough juncture in our history, the change and all that’s going to happen in the next two or three years”.

 

“It would be very tough for whoever was Prime Minister, she’s got it at a very difficult time”.

 

“She’ll show her mettle, won’t she?”

 

The fact that Mrs May opted to focus on perhaps a few hundred rich people spoke volumes about how of touch she is; the fact that a woman beating “brute” then endorsed her sums up how pathetic her progress as Prime Minister truly has been.

  1. The reason is seeking to entice HNW Indians here is for the simple reason that they will be tempted to invest in the UK…just as Tata, the owners of Jaguar and Land Rover have done.
    By staying in London rather than building bridges with one of the world’s fastest growing economies shows two things: political shrewdness and coolness under fire.

  2. For once I disagree with the Steepletimes. If anyone can lead us through these difficult times ahead it is Theresa May.
    She is clever, experienced and dedicated. Aren’t we lucky?
    Pity the poor Americans. At best they’ll get Hillary, at worst you know who…Perish the thought.

  3. I think we know all there is to know about Mrs Clinton from her behaviour in defeat.
    Hiding away in a luxury hotel suite; ignoring those who have sweated for you and being ‘too upset’ to deliver an address shows she has no moral fibre and is thus entirely unsuited to be POTUS.
    She should have recognised her deficiencies and never stood. She is a disgrace and the American people told her so in the most emphatic of ways.
