From Gerard Chapman.
I USED to be employed as a supply teacher. One of the schools I frequented was the old Le Rocquier. The English department had a display wall entitled ‘The apostrophe police’. Children were encouraged to bring in examples of incorrect punctuation to add to the display. One I clearly remember was a cinema advertising ‘Bridget Jone’s diary’.
I think the States should collect up the road signs that will otherwise be blighting St John for the next month. They could be offered to schools to be used as striking centrepieces for apostrophe police displays.
In the grand scheme of things, does it really matter? Unfortunately I’m old enough to think it does.
