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 Rise of Racism

That the new leader of UKIP is prepared to be photographed with a far-right thug is anything but acceptable

 

Today, the Mail Online featured an image of UKIP’s new leader, Paul Nuttall, with his arm around the shoulder of a far-right EDL supporter named Andrew Edge.

 

Edge, a man previously snapped with Nigel Farage on several occasions, describes himself as a campaign manager for UKIP on his Facebook page and also has previously posed for a picture (complete with a UKIP “We want our country back, Vote to Leave” banner) next to the graves of the East End villains Ronald and Reginald Kray.

 

Whilst Nuttall and others shrug this off as “hard-right trolling and nothing to do with us”, this is indicative of where Britain now is. Post-Brexit and with the rise of Donald Trump in America, racism and bigotry have found their moment once again. We must stand firm and we must all stand against this.
