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.

We’re All Immigrants

Jack Hine suggests: “We are a multi-national country, get used to it”

 

We are all immigrants: The original inhabitants of ‘England’ are long gone and distributed throughout Wales, Brittany and beyond.

 

This country needs immigrants and their skills and efforts should be welcomed. Instead, new immigrants are insecure because of Brexit and the possibility of deportation. They’re attacked in the streets and termed by the Daily Mail as “spongers” and “liggers”.

 

As there has been a decline in unemployment, it doesn’t appear that these people have taken the jobs of UK born Brits and if the country is to grow (and grow it must), we need immigrants. With a controlled policy, as occurs in Australia and Switzerland, this works well and it is anything but for the bad of native citizens.

 

Do the people who demonstrate against foreigners coming here and support Brexit not realise the potential for growth is best served by remaining in Europe and migration? They ignore the numbers and simply rant about “getting our country back”. They’re nothing but clueless.

 

It’s quite simple: Draw a graph of GDP, with or without Brexit, and then calculate the financial contributions brought in by skilled working immigrants now and in the future. You’ll not be surprised by the result.

 

This country cannot be saved by turning the clock back to Victorian Britain and an empire we no longer have. Equally, Theresa May’s talk of easily renegotiating trade deals, I must say, are nothing but pie in the sky!

 

I love Britain but why do we have to be so obstinate by encouraging its downfall? Patriotic? I think not.

Those that claim we should “Put British Workers First” make a truly disingenuous claim

Britain, instead, has actually always prospered by embracing its neighbours

  1. Kick ’em all out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Disgusting that you tolerate such nonsense in the UK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have none of this in Australia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. You really do publish total cr*p in this paper now. Very disappointed. Why don’t you let UKIP members contribute? I bet you won’t even publish my comment. We want our country back, we won, you lost, get over it. Get the immigrants gone. Let’s reclaim Britain.

    1. We have regularly offered UKIP supporters and others the opportunity to contribute to our pages. We have even interviewed Neil Hamilton and several articles published here have come from those pro that kind of opinion. It seems, most, like you, just moan rather than contribute anything positive.

  3. “The original inhabitants of England are long gone”?
    What a naively idiotic statement to make.
    Go to most counties of England and you find the overwhelming element of the population have English names and bloodlines going back, in many cases, to pre-Norman times.
    Trying telling the Japanese that they are all immigrants; they will think you either mad or stupid. And, that applies to most countries.
    Anyone with half a brain knows that unfettered immigration is a recipe for social unrest: hence the reason why most intelligent countries are strict about who they wish to settle in their country.
    I know that Matthew doesn’t pay people to write articles, but at least try to try find a writer who can at least write with a degree of coherence.
    This ‘article’ would shame some graduate from the University of Chelmsford.
    In fact, I embarrassed myself by wasting time reading it.
    I love Miss Coyne’s comment. She sounds a real airhead!

  4. And the author is so mixed up he cannot even decide whether he is a ‘Jack’ or a ‘Peter’. Hine, stick to dealing in souvenirs!
    and bits of memorabilia
