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.

The Makeup of May

As Theresa May is compared to a Womble, we take a look at some other comparisons that could be made to a woman who believes in “red, white and blue Brexit”

 

Aside from being criticised for spending vast sums on leather trousers, Theresa May often sports Vivienne Westwood tartan numbers. Inevitably, her personal style is either lauded or mocked and here below we select a number of examples of what she’s been compared to as well as a number of her more curious personal moments.

 

The Makeup of May – Theresa May lookalikes and style
Mrs May was compared to a Womble in a letter to ‘Private Eye’ this week

The comparison is certainly accurate

The look has also been compared to that of certain punk figures

And to characters from ‘The Simpsons’

Mrs May’s expression sometimes echoes that of beady eyed birds of prey

And also scary characters from the movies

She’s also been likened to football mascots

And likes to wear T-shirts suggesting she’s a feminist

But she contradicted that last week when she held the hand of “pussy grabber” Donald Trump last week

A believer in “red, white and blue Brexit”, Theresa May, in summary, should instead try a look that is perhaps a little more conservative

  1. Mrs May did the right thing grabbing Donald Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Together they’ll MAKE BOTH THEIR COUNTRIES GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You should be locked up for mocking this fine lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I don’t need my Prime Minister to be sartorially fabulous. I want him or her to be a good PM. Whether you think Mrs May is one is for another whole debate. I’d rather have her making peculiar faces and wearing the odd fashion disaster (er, what’s wrong with tartan, chaps?) than being Tony Bliar, not a typo, in bespoke suits ANY TIME

    1. Remember this: “Your PM” is the woman who as Home Sec presided over:

      1. The failed £100m abuse inquiry. 4 judges, no justice for victims.
      2. £12m to McCann duo. No result. Nothing to other missing kids.
      3. Closing police stations.
      4. Closing fire stations.

      You celebrate that? And she did plenty else too… You plainly have a warped sense of what is a “good PM”.

  3. I don’t know what you look like Mr Steeples, but I imagine there are photographs in which you appear in a less than flattering light.

    It is spiteful of you to be so horrid to Mrs May. I am sorry to have to say, you are not a gentleman.

  4. Sorry, you missed my point, Matthew. I absolutely didn’t say she was a good PM. You get judged on the facts for being a good PM or not (in her case so far – not). My point was you don’t get judged by your dress sense. It detracts from the serious issues if you do that. (Mind you, was clearly in sanctimonious mood when I wrote my comment).

  5. Oh, and to talk about one of the issues you mention when Mrs May was Home Sec. I couldn’t agree more. It totally disgusts me that the abuse enquiry has been so ineffectual, and it’s APPALLING that there hasn’t been much condemnation of its lack of success in the press. An insult to all those victims….

  6. Matthew has a point about her record as Home Secretary but we need to move on.
    English woman are not expected to waste a great deal of time on their clothes: in fact, it’s regarded as being a bit common to be obsessed about clothes and food.
    May has inherited the toughest of jobs and I think she will do a good job of getting us out of the EU in good fettle.
    How can one take seriously an organisation whose ‘chief executive’ clearly has a serious alcohol problem.
    And, don’t quote back Churchill. Druncker’s only claim to fame is having been PM of a mini, tax evading country called Luxembourg.
    Anyway, thank god we are off before Albania joins…50% Islamist and the scariest gangsters in Europe!
