So they have the continued choice of 'hanging' their gollywogs from the shelf....and people have the free choice to either drink there or not.

Personally I wouldn't feel comfortable drinking in a pub where the landlord is so stuck in his outdated views, but if the pub is busy, obviously others don't mind.
