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.

Trolling Brexit

Gina Miller targeted by trolls and subjected to death threats simply for attempting to prove a point of law on Brexit

 

Like or loathe Brexit, one should respect the right of others to opinions contrary to one’s own. In Britain, it seems, this is no longer the case and yesterday’s reaction to Gina Miller’s High Court challenge to how Article 50 should be invoked proves just such.

 

Mrs Miller, a financier, campaigner and philanthropist, has previously stated that her business has been boycotted and that she has received death threats but after yesterday’s hearing, it was the reaction of Twitter users that truly surprised and shocked.

 

Simply for taking a stance and boldly putting her head above the parapet, some described Mrs Miller as “an immigrant who doesn’t believe in democracy” and someone “pushing for a civil war”. Another went as far as to demand: “Deport her”.

 

A selection of tweets posted yesterday and this morning follow and to read the full transcript of yesterday’s hearing click here.
