Why is it incorrect to say between you and I (rather than between you and me)? Why is it also wrong to say John and me went to the shops (instead of John and I went to the shops)? Should you say she’s much better than me or she’s much better than I? For a discussion of such questions, see between (usage) and personal pronoun.
