About this chart... MEPs are not the only political panellists on -since 2000 there have been more than 2100 political panellist appearances, guided by the national level of electoral support for their parties. (1/5)

The parties on are there because people vote for them in elections – not just Westminster ones. So sometimes parties will be represented by MEPs, MSPs, AMs etc. It’s not just about how many MPs they have but about broader electoral support (4/5)

isn’t a single-issue programme. During the formal referendum period QT ensured a balance between Brexit remainers & leavers. Since then the arguments are less binary so we don’t categorise panellists like that but we do aim to reflect a range of views over time (5/5)

There is literally no excuse for never having invited a pro EU British MEP on to but you just keep digging that hole.

Not getting it are you. UKIP were/are a single policy party with little/no parliament representation Your chart or reasoning does not reflect the opposite view. Disingenuous to suggest "other" panellists will balance their viewpoint.
