Still say Peterborough should be on the second list

But you're biased on account of literally being stabbed in the back there.

Since I found you on a grammar site, I'm wondering if the first sentence should contain its rather than it's. But I'm AmE, so maybe it ain't the same.

Roger, I consider myself chastised, I fell it to the trap of thinking as "its" is possesive it needs an apostrophy but I was wrong (and have corrected it).

Now this blog is not a site about grammar so as long as you understood the meaning I hope you don't mind too much!
