← Landlords protest after pub swearing ban gets them sacked

And what are the chances that the level of swearing in that pub has now gone significantly up? What a pair of utter morons.

On the landlord issue, the term is used to refer to the managers of pubs owned by breweries because historically the owner of the property would act as the pub manager and would also rent out rooms in the property. That is still the case in privately-owned pubs, but the terminology is also applied to the managers of brewery-owned pubs, not least because "bar manager" is a fucking hideous term.
