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.

In setting out her vision for Britain, Theresa May simply tried – and then failed – to ape David Cameron

 

Yesterday, in Birmingham, Theresa May attempted to rouse the Conservative Party with a speech that set out her vision of what she called “a country that works for everyone”.

 

In her platitude plastered effort, Mrs May “let loose her inner tigress” according to Quentin Letts of The Daily Mail and “did some mad double waving”. The Rolling Stones played in the background and, as she announced in an email to her followers later, she attempted to copy David Cameron’s “better together” by announcing – in a bold font – “let’s rise to this moment together”.

 

#DarthVader Mrs May certainly made an attempt to make her mark yesterday, but it is time to remember several things about her: Here is a woman who presided over the mess that is the immigration crisis that led to Brexit and here is a woman who has repeatedly failed to do anything about historic VIP abuse.

 

In also announcing that her party wishes to make companies list the names of foreign workers in a style akin to that of Hitler’s Nazi Germany, Mrs May went too far. Her bossy school teacher like approach is not what this country needs and quite frankly I’d rather her and her hectoring ways be gone.
