I think he's 9th in the Wikipedia statistics, the others at comparable levels all being elected leaders of major parties or at least cabinet ministers with much longer careers. Similarly there's Paul Nuttall 13, Suzanne Evans 6, Richard Tice 5, Douglas Carswell 6 appearances and more. This huge representation for a party that only ever elected 1 MP defected from The Conservative Party.

They're reported here to have appearances in 25% of editions between 2010 and 2017, compared to just 7% for The Green Party:

I suppose as a one-issue 'party' they were very much on-trend in the latter part of that period, and arguably were clickbait to get people watching.
Perhaps it was also a deliberate ploy by the BBC to counter their perceived hippy lefty leanings?

Now we all suffer the effects of this horrific deception that has stolen our rights, freedoms and standards. The perpetrators deserve to be behind bars but obviously that's never going to happen. No surprise this government is attacking the independence of the judiciary. They're even seeking to abolish the right to trial by jury for many cases, under cover of emergency powers. It's quite amazing what's happening, that so many either don't know, don't understand or don't care about.

Farage has apparently appeared on Question Time 32 times in 18 years, ie. 1.7 weeks/year.
and he was a part of the movement that won the referendum, so perhaps not as much of a 'loony' as some might like to believe.. there's no real discussion to be had, as you can't believe that the BBC has a 'right' bias.
Come on now planeterror, you can't win an argument with a Rancid Remoaner by using facts and logic :thumbdown:
Please stick mto the standard format of name calling and typing in capitals, IE 'Sell-out. traitor. commie, snowflake, bureaucrat lapdog pen pusher.
