Society to protect apostrophes’ shut’s down because of barbarians’
Metro UK – 2 Dec 2019

Grammar pedant John Richards who has quit the Apostrophe Protection Society saying 'the Barbarians have won'. See SWNS story SWCAapostrophe. Started by former journalist John Richards, The Apostrophe Protection Society is bowing out after 18 years of grammatical crusading. He said: ?The problem is that fewer and fewer people are using apostrophes these days let alone using them correctly. Many firms and organisations have given up using them at all. Secondly, at 96 I am reducing my commitments. ?Over the years we have heard from thousands of supporters all over the world, and I would like to thank them, but the barbarians have won?

The article is sprinkled with hilarious apostrophe abuses (note headline).

Writing on the societys website, he said: ‘Fewer organisations and individuals are now caring about the correct use of the apostrophe in the English language.
