← Landlords protest after pub swearing ban gets them sacked

What possessed (pun intended) this couple to take on management of a pub in the first place ? Were they so busy having children they never got out much, and had no clue what might go on in a pub ? Maybe they never went in one ? I guess their favourite TV show is NOT The Sopranos. Next on their list of management jobs, a garage. After that, a military barracks. And the beat goes on.

Civil discourse is always admirable, but to ban profanity.....gee whillikers, Batman. They could try a voluntary piggy bank for curse words, the proceeds to be given to a local charity, perhaps. Who knows, maybe all patrons would support it.
