    The Bristol Grammar Vigilante strikes! 3rd Apr 17 at 10:49 AM
    There's guy in Bristol who goes around correcting misplaced apostrophes and other errors on shop fronts and signs.

    HURRAY!

    My hero! .


    Meet the 'Grammar Vigilante' of Bristol

    For years, it has been rumoured that somebody has been going out late at night, correcting bad punctuation on Bristol shop fronts.
    The self-proclaimed "grammar vigilante" goes out undercover in the dead of night correcting street-signs and shop-fronts where the apostrophes are in the wrong place.

    Jon Kay meets grammar's answer to Banksy and reveals the extent of his one man mission to improve standards.

    Listen to more in The 'Apostrophiser', Radio 4, 20:00 BST, Monday 3 April, or afterwards on the BBC iPlayer.

    Don't many Marks & Spencer shops now go with just "M & S" (or is it "M&S") as the logo on the outside of their buildings?

    The use of just 3 letters saves a lot on typos (;-)) and signage costs and sign space and electricity to light it up - very green!
    I am just thinking out loud - nothing I say should be relied upon!
    I do however reserve the right to be correct by accident.

    Can I propose this thread be given a new lease of life with every general election faux pas?

    We will not have long to wait if the past is anything to go by.

    Indeed. Even Trumpisms are welcome, I reckon.
