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

The Rise of The Angry Man

2016 has given the ‘angry man’ a voice suggests Matthew Steeples

 

Last night, in a bar in Chelsea, a middle-aged man came up to me and told me I’d “misunderstood” him. This individual, Richard Neagle, can be credited for trying to apologise but given he’d previously termed me “mentally unbalanced”, I felt justified in simply responding simply: “Please go away”.

 

Over recent months, I’ve encountered many of his type and Bill Clinton supposedly tells a similar tale. He is said to have remarked that Donald Trump was elected by “white, angry men” to someone in a bookshop recently and to me, Brexit has given the British equivalent the very same voice and one that they don’t deserve.

 

These men – other examples of whom I’ll name as Rupert James and Huw Shakeshaft – previously behaved themselves (to an extent) but with Trump headed to The White House and Nigel Farage his sidekick stooge, they think they can say whatever they want.

 

Racism and bigotry have risen to the fore and the hatefulness towards decent people like “the bitch former model”, as one especially bitter crone referenced Gina Miller, is deemed acceptable by these characters. Jo Cox MP got murdered by an extreme version of such a person this year and Anna Soubry MP was forced to report another to the police after they suggested she should “be hanged”. Gary Lineker, equally, suffered for simply standing up for immigrants and in the previously mentioned bar, a female version of the aforementioned proved it’s not just the men who are at it when she told the foreign man serving her drinks: “It’s your sort that have cost me my job”.

 

The rule of “if you’ve nothing decent to say, say nothing at all” has been thrown out of the window in 2016 and now mob rule prevails. It’s unacceptable and it has to stop.

  1. What a load of f**king tosh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These men are right and Matthew Steeples is a f**king cock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kill him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or lock him Up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Why do you allow such rudeness and vulgarity on this site? Is this man ‘Rod’ for real? If he is, then he comes across as a drunken illiterate (One with a wonky keyboard).

    You proclaim “wit and wisdom”. Do you consider this contributor to be an example of this?

  3. Shame on you Mr S. you attack angry people without trying to understand their anger. Get out of Chelsea, go to Strood or Sunderland and you will see that much of this country has been left to its fate by successive governments. Look at the weather, nothing except token gestures to stop global warming. Even Chelsea will not be exempt from its effects. Small wonder we are angry (but hopefully courteous )

  4. Racism and, hardly as dramatic but still important, bad manners have no place in a civilized society. Your points are well-taken, though as a Brexiteer for trade and sovereignty reasons, I disassociate myself totally from the foam-flecked loonies and racist monsters who are using Brexit as a platform for their appalling views.

    Good for you, Matthew, for not blocking RJS’s comment. We’d never have known what his views are if you HAD blocked it. He does seem to march to the sound of his own drummer but his latest comment crossed the line.
