Out of their class

Section:

Mid Devon District Council ban the use of apostrophes in street signage

 

First, Waterstone’s announced that they’d be ditching the apostrophe in their name to become Waterstones and now Mid Devon District Council are embarking on the same ludicrous course of action with regard to street signs.

 

Watch out street signs... Mid Devon District Council are about

Stating that they wish to “reduce potential confusion”, council officers have argued that their move is “practical” and wise. They even go as far as to suggest ditching grammatical tradition will make things easier in “emergency situations”.

 

How so? We think that their proposal is ridiculous and frankly all it highlights is that these officials are plainly just badly educated. The best course of action would be to take them off the job and simply send them back to the classroom.
