My hackles are at an all time high
Election time. Time for my home to be invaded by leaflets asking for my support. Well, I'll not be supportive of anyone who is so ignorant that they cannot use the apostrophe correctly.

Dear Sandra Gilfillan and Aidan Ruff,
I received the election publicity for Aidan Ruff this morning. Having read the leaflet from cover to cover, I found that punctuation errors were more abundant than policies. In particular, you appear to be unsure of the correct use of the apostrophe.
It is worth pointing out that your education policies cannot be taken seriously when you are clearly struggling with something I learnt at primary school. However, in an attempt to help you out, I will describe the catalogue of errors within your literature.
Obviously this is a matter of great embarrassment to you, and I hope that the above points will help you with future publications. Please let me know if you have any questions or wish to explain how such faulty literature was ever printed.
