Standard English

If this is the Standard version of English, what’s the bad stuff like? Although this is an understandable problem with the apostrophe, london evening standardwe think a major newspaper might know the difference. Watch out for a future post on the reason for  the "its" and "it’s"  discrepancy.

In fact, do you think it matters? Log on and blow your horn about it.

(Legal disclaimer to avoid massive suing of Ludamus: the newspaper may well claim that this notice is nothing do do with them, and that it was written by an individual vendor. The two notices look identical, suggesting central printing, but it may not have been by the august newspaper itself. On the other hand, wouldn’t it be nice if they took steps to make sure that it was right?)
