Our first Swingometer question turned to Scottish Courage, which is

relaunching Holsten Pils in the UK using characters and sketches from

the Fast Show. We asked whether the ads say anything about the product.

Clearly not. An overwhelming 77 per cent voted no.

Our second question focused on the gay charity, Rubberstuffers, whose ad

in which two men kiss, caress and undress each other, has been passed

for late-night TV. We asked if it should have been given the go-ahead.

In a close vote, 53 per cent said yes.

swearing in ads, we asked if we were becoming more conservative? No, 75

per cent of voters said.
