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.

EDITORIAL

Editorial comment from Matthew Steeples Our editor tells it like it is and he rarely minces his words

Rabid Rupert

Matthew Steeples highlights an example of the kind of abuse Gina Miller has had to suffer for simply bringing a legal challenge that was most definitely necessary

 

Financier and philanthropist Gina Miller – a hero of our times for challenging Theresa May’s attempt to invoke Article 50 without a parliamentary vote – has suffered abuse from all kinds of lunatics. She’s been called a “despot” and a “bitch”, people have urged others to rape and murder her and one troll suggested “cancer’s too good for her”. Even the Mail Online – and they’re no fans of hers – stated that this is nothing but “vile”.

 

An example of an especially nasty rabid ranter is a man named Rupert James. Hailing from Cheshire and running some kind of solar panel business in Canada also (which seems a little curious for someone so anti the environmentalist movement), this angry ageing bore published a series of posts about Gina Miller on Facebook this week.

 

They read:

 

“Meddling bloody publicity seeking ‘Little Miller’ … Victory for Democracy … No its [sic] undermined the Democratic process!!!”

 

“Bloody self promoting ‘Minx’ …. !!” (accompanying article titled “Traitor”)

 

And finally:

 

“Stupid ‘Bint’ … !!!”

 

James, who has also targeted me in recent days and predictably despite bullying humans likes to be photographed with animals, should be reminded of one thing: Civilised people don’t lower themselves to this level. Whether you like or loathe someone’s views, if you can’t express your own rationally in response, you belong in the nut house.

  1. Rupert James added a lot to this site and you’ve turned on him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shame on you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He’s anything but a racist!!!!!!!! I saw his posts on Facebook and one rightly pointed out that murderers in Africa are “bloody black savages”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He tells it like it is.

  2. I blocked Rupert James on Facebook for another reason. He spews his commentary out in the most boring fashion. I think he’s actually just a dull, lonely old man. He needs to be pitied.

  3. I am an elderly lady and I enjoy reading this paper but what I did not enjoy were the comments left by Rupert James. He was a very rude man and I was upset by some of the things he said here. I am so pleased he has gone now.
