In and out

COURTESY of the all-seeing eye [phone] of New Journal reporter Tom Foot (tomfoot1), can Camden Council just make up its mind over where it stands in the great apostrophe debate?

    I’ve held myself back from going on an apostrophe war – there are bigger issues. But it does annoy given it’s practically the only grammar with a hard and fast rule to its use. (note the correct use in this comment with the exceptions to the rule).
