Well, partly. Moreover, I'm trying undermine him and his "oh-so-clever" humour .

Why do we always call it a Union Jack then? whether at land or sea!

I don't call it the Union Jack. It's one of those errors that has just been passed down and is now accepted as the norm. This is why the misuse of apostrophes worries me (well, not that I can't get to sleep at night) - it will eventually be accepted .

You have to admitt, Union Jack has a better ring to it. It sounds so much more cooler!

There is nothing wrong with James's !!!! It is the genitive of James, ie "of James".

If you're going to complain about the (mis)use of apostrophes, you ought at least know what is incorrect! Don't tell me you've been correcting other people's acceptable grammar?!
Some people think James' is acceptable, personally i think it is incorrect (unless it is the genitive of a group of people called Jame!)

You'd be a fool if you thought St James's Palace was an incorrect use of the apostrophe!!

EDIT: I don't mean genitive, I mean possessive. sorry, creepy latin affecting my english!!
