It's been a while since I've counted interruptions and done timings, but today's The Andrew Marr Show tempted me to give it a go again.
- Despite being the shortest interview (7 minutes), UKIP's Peter Whittle was interrupted most often (14 times).
- Though getting a longer interview than Mr Whittle, the Conservatives' Patrick McLoughlin (10 minutes) was interrupted less often (11 times).
- And Shami Chakrabarti, though getting the longest interview of all (over 12 minutes), was interrupted no more often in total than Mr McLoughlin (11 times), thus enjoying a lower frequency of interruptions.
So, on the interruptions front, Mr Whittle got the worst of it this morning.
