Pubs.
Pubs with grub.

Simple.

and none of this 'gastropub' stuff. It sounds like some kind of stomach medication.

"Heartburn? Trapped wind? The Scutters? ... Try new GASTROPUB! Just one tablet twice a day and you'll be running like clockwork. - Always read the label!"

A good dose of a wet pub leads to extreme dryness.

Wet pub. So called because a manky pint will have wet crap running out your arse instead of your p!sser.

Gastro pub. So called well because manky food will not only shoot out your arse as well as your mouth.

Staycation. Well it serves all you Fu¢kers right for wanting to talk like yanks.

And its always been a pub in my time, a bar to my was always something made of chocolate.

Its time we started to take back our sayings. Bars, staycation, serves you all right.

Conspiracy theory, maybe covid was invented so we could change our vocabulary!

My local town had over a dozen pubs at one time, that was fine when stout was looked upon as a foodstuff. There's 6 now and that's more than enough.
Ffs there were pubs in every nook and cranny and in the arse end of nowhere, obviously they all couldn't stay going and the drink driving lark had reached a point where that had to stop.

You get this in America a lot, where only dingy places are "bars" where's anywhere comfortable, even if it looks like a pub, they will start you off with a menu etc, and just coming in to drink is seen as strange.

Tldr: Wet pubs my hairy hole.
Ah right. So its a big conspiracy to kill the pub.

Oh, so it's an established industry term and not a conspiracy to kill off the pubs.

Lads, why the need for conspiracy theories? What's in it for the government and why have successive governments agreed on trying to kill off the pub in spite of the tax revenue it brings in through direct tax on alcohol, income tax and corporation tax?

I’d say the effort needed to amend that usage of words in our language would be futile.

“Jimmy luv, put yar bleedin shoes back on , the only place you are bleedin goin is out for a couple of bags o cans fir us, ring the bell and I’ll let you back Inn”

I was fine with that, thought it was a nice term for older people and less harsh sounding than isolating, because for some older folk in rural areas they are isolated enough as is.

"Staycation" and indeed it's daddy "Vacation" can go and **** off though.
