A Times article today reports that the Commons vote on an amendment to the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill (removing the right for big companies to charge their pub tenants inflated prices for beer)  “could help to revive the pub trade. Cheers to that……   Cutting the beer tie would slowly bring back market forces to a sector that is sclerotic and skewed, and bring hope to others snared in the coils of oligopoly.” Times article (warning includes Murdoch’s paywall!)

The word sclerotic is more commonly used to describe livers ravaged by alcohol.  Does the journalist who wrote the leader have a dark sense of humour?
