YouGov loses all credibility...again!

After grumbles about YouGov's dubious methodology during the leader's debates in April, their latest impartial and not at all leading question for the recent Sun poll on the AV referendum is a corker:

“Before the election the Conservative party criticised an AV referendum as likely to cost £80 million at a time when the government would be needing to make major spending cuts. In view of the government’s current cuts in public spending, do you think it is an appropriate or inappropriate time to hold a referendum on AV?”

Wow! That's not leading at all is it? Isn't there some polling code they should be following or something?

Oh and the same polling showed overall support for AV. The Sun strangely didn't mention that though!
