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.

Crown Chaos

Matthew Steeples highlights the incompetence of the CPS after witnessing a trial for an assault on his person fail due to their ineptitude and inability to file the correct paperwork

 

On 23rd April 2016, I was the victim of an unprovoked attack outside Coya, an upscale Mayfair dining spot. Yesterday, nearly a year later, an assault case against perpetrator of this offence was dismissed due to the Crown Prosecution Service having twice failed to serve the case schedule on the defendant.

 

That the plainly unhinged individual who targeted me, a man capable of repeatedly and forcefully smashing me in the back with a wooden handle of an umbrella but a man incapable to even turn up to court due to his “physical weakness”, was not brought to justice was frustrating enough but that this occurred due to incompetence on the part of those tasked with administering the case is what grates.

 

In October 2016, at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court, at the first hearing in regard to the assault, a member of the bench pointed out that simple, yet essential paperwork had not been correctly served on the defendant by the CPS. They ordered this be corrected before a second hearing on 24th February 2017 at the City of London Magistrates’ Court.

 

Yesterday, in spite of a further four months having passed, I was informed that the necessary paperwork had still not been served. On that basis, the prosecutor informed me, the case against my attacker was to be dismissed. The defendant, thus, walked scot-free and now is in a position to do something similar or worse to another member of the public. It will only be once that occurs, and inevitably it will given this individual’s previous form, that action might be taken. On that basis here, I highlight the true villains hindering justice: The hapless and hopeless CPS.

  2. I hear of the CPS messing up cases so often. They don’t have enough resources and guess who is to blame? Theresa May – the worse home secretary we’ve had in decades. And now the bloody woman is PM it can only get worse.

  3. @DavidPound. All the troubles with the CPS e.g. lack of resources, only started in 2010 when she became Home Secretary? Really? Who knew?

    1. She has removed the resources of so much of our justice system. Of course there were cuts before but hers have really bitten.
