JULY I.C.s - SUMMARY OF EACH INTERVIEWER'S HIGHEST SCORE
If you list all the highest interruption coefficients achieved by every interviewer who has interviewed representatives of more than one political party a very interesting pattern emerges:
Gavin Esler - Grant Shapps, Conservative Carolyn Quinn - Bill Rammell, Labour & John Fitter, Conservative (joint) Evan Davis - David Davis, Conservative & Ian Duncan Smith, Conservative (joint) Sarah Montague - Liam Fox, Conservative Eddie Mair - Lord Mandelson, Labour Martha Kearney - Nick Gibb, Conservative Jim Naughtie - Alan Duncan, Conservative Edward Stourton - Denis MacShane, Labour Shaun Ley - Teresa May, Conservative John Humphrys - David Cameron, Conservative Jeremy Paxman - Bill Rammell, Labour Glenn Campbell - Angus Robertson, SNP Emily Maitlis - Angela Eagle, Labour Nick Robinson - Mike O'Brien, Labour Robin Lustig - Liam Fox, Conservative & Philip Hunt, Labour (joint) Jo Coburn - Michael Gove, Conservative Andrew Marr - George Osborne, Conservative Mark D'Arcy - Ed Vaizey, Conservative Andrew Neil - Philip Hammond, Conservative Adrian Masters - Andrew R.T. Davies, Conservative Anita Anand, Glenn Tingle, UKIP
So, that's: Conservatives - 15 Labour - 7 UKIP - 1 SNP - 1
Now, who's the government and who's the opposition?
