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.

Stunt Slumps

As a company run by “flash bastard” socialite James Stunt posts losses of £900,000, we remember previous travails involving him and his wordsmith wife

 

This morning, the Daily Mail’s Sebastian Shakespeare reported a company owned by the son-in-law of billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, James Stunt, suffered a fall in its net worth from £2.78 million to £1.89 million ($3.59 million to $2.44 million, €3.28 million to €2.23 million or درهم13.17 million to درهم8.96 million) in the year to June 2016.

 

Described previously as a “flash bastard” by Mr Ecclestone in April 2014, Stunt is known to like to spend time purchasing art and cars but is viewed by many residents of Kensington and Chelsea to be simply “nothing but an attention seeker”.

 

Of the news, a spokesman for Stunt Acquisitions, told the paper:

 

“The company continues to undertake research and to explore opportunities for long-term investment and growth. Such a strategy, inevitably, has short-term costs associated with it”.

 

Stunt’s vulgarian wordsmith wife, Petra, hasn’t faired much better in business. In 2015, a company she named ‘Stark’ after her father called its inception “stark raving mad”, reported debts of £4.44 million ($5.68 million, €5.19 million or درهم20.85 million).

 

A word of advice? Perhaps this ghastly pair should stick to shopping.

  1. Brash and tacky. That’s all that needs to be said. I cringe every time I see him and his horrible convoy. His security staff are very rude also and think they own the road.

  2. Why does he not grow up? I saw him at Masterpiece and he was behaving like a big kid pestering art dealers. They look totally underwhelmed by him.

  3. Good article.
    I have seen his tacky cavalcade of cars bearing less taste than Katy Price or a young footballer

  4. Matthew
    He is far worse than being just an attention seeker. He and his ludicrous cavalcade clog up the narrow streets of Chelsea.
