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.

MAYbe a SHOEin

Theresa May’s appointment as Prime Minister leaves a lot to be desired suggests Matthew Steeples – but we can thank God for small mercies also

 

Theresa May as Prime Minister: As much as I disliked the idea, it was never a MAYbe and was always going to be a SHOEin. Goodness knows what’s next, but with she-who-cannot-make-up-her-mind in charge, nothing will ever be predictable.

 

With Angela Leadsom’s cowardice exposed – she should not, in fact, ever have stood in the first place if she knew she wasn’t good enough – the inevitable occurred and now the real loser in all of this, David Cameron, will be swiftly sent on his way. Perhaps it was all planned but most likely it was simply a farce.

 

The country needs strong leadership right now and the worst Home Secretary in history and a woman who consistently has failed to deliver anything other than chaos is not, in my humble opinion, going to do that. At least, and though I very much doubt she’ll ever become PM herself, with Angela Eagle challenging Jeremy Corbyn we’ll end up with a decent opposition. Thank God for small mercies but even she couldn’t raise anyone to ask her a question at her campaign launch on Monday. The Eagle well and truly has yet to land but Darth Vader’s sister is sadly very much in control of the House. This is a sad day for democracy.
