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.

On Tuesday 22nd November at 7pm, The Steeple Times will host its fifth panel debate at 12 Hay Hill in Mayfair, London. Following on from the success of our recent Brexit debate, an expert panel chaired by Jackie Branston will examine the question: Should London go it alone and become the New Monaco?

 

Panellists will include leading London property agent Nick Crayson of Crayson, top immigration lawyer Roger Gherson of Gherson, media personality Katie Hopkins, financier Joaquin Lassala of FVC and international sales consultant Esam Sultan of Harrods Estates.

The discussion, provoked by a YouGov poll that found that “one in nine Londoners wants the capital to split off and become an entirely separate country”, will undoubtedly be lively and, in a post-Brexit, pre-Trump inauguration world, we expect heated discussion from both the panel and audience.

 

Tickets to the event cost £20 per person or £35 per pair and can be booked via Eventbrite by clicking here. Admittance is strictly on the basis of pre-payment only and a cash bar will operate before the event from 6.30pm and afterwards also.
