Nanny Bans, Then Unbans Apostrophes



I am gemused to read about the recent antics of Nanny's chums from Mid-Devon District Council, who have been getting their collective knickers in a twist over the English language and "how she is spoke".

Seemingly the learned members of Mid-Devon District Council were of the view that apostrophes are just too confusing for the "intellect" of 21st Century minds, and as such banned them from street names.

Needless to say this dumbing down, and bastardisation of grammatical rules, attracted widespread criticism and derision.

Can you guess what happened next children?

Yes, that's (ooh, did you see how cunningly I inserted an apostrophe there?) right, Nanny unbanned the ban.

Apostrophes are now legal once more in Mid Devon.

Hoozah!

    "Seemingly the learned members of Mid-Devon District Council were of the view that apostrophes are just too confusing for the "intellect" of 21st Century minds, and as such banned them from street names."

    Speaking as someone who was taught how to punctuate at primary school, I find this very patronising, don't you, Ken? I imagine many of the council's residents will find this insulting too! I can only assume that someone on the council has too little to do, and therefore too much time on their hands. I am sure there are plenty of social problems that do need attending to by the local authority, without any need whatever to engage in this kind of nonsense!
