The Campaign Phone Poll
Each week, in association with the automated telemarketing company,
Broadsystem, we pose a topical question and ask readers to phone in. The
response is published in the following week’s issue.
Calls are made using the 0990 code and last about 12 seconds. Each call
costs around 2p. The lines will close at 4pm on Monday.
This week’s question
In light of the Advertising Standards Authority’s initiative of asking
the industry for an opinion on its performance, ‘Do you think it is
doing a good job?’
0990 200 561 for Yes
0990 200 562 for No
