It’s a prob­lem

NewsMail - - YOUR SAY -

THE first time I read it in the News Mail I thought it was an over­sight.

But then I read it sev­eral times more, in­clud­ing to­day on page 3 (NM, 13/11): “One Na­tion won’t win enough seats (...) to take gov­ern­ment in it’s own right”.

Pos­ses­sive pro­nouns don’t take apos­tro­phes, so it should be: “in its own right” (whereas “it’s” means “it is”). — MARC OBROWSKI Bund­aberg West
