VIEWERS of Sunday With Laura Kuenssberg were left unhappy at the appearance of Nigel Farage on the programme.

On the show, Farage said that Boris Johnson’s decision to quit as an MP marked “the end” for him in the Conservative Party and claimed the former PM had “virtually gifted” his seat to the Labour Party. 

He also claimed that as many as 10 Tory MPs could be willing to join a new party.

Many took to Twitter to criticise the decision to have Farage on the show, including SNP MP John Nicolson.

On Saturday night, he tweeted: “Oh God. Another BBC platform for Farage.”

Prior to the former MEP’s interview, Kuenssberg said: “His position on Brexit pushed the Conservatives further and further and whether you love him or hate him, there’s no question that like Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage has been a very influential figure.”

Others on Twitter questioned why the GB News presenter was even on the show, with one echoing Nicolson’s thoughts and questioning why he continued to receive a platform.

Somebody else questioned whether the reason Farage still has influence is because of the air-time he is given.

“Why is so much air-time given to Farage”, asked another while panellist and Scottish actor Alan Cumming joked about Farage being interviewed on his own rather than taking a seat on the panel.

He joked that he wanted to see Farage in “real life” rather than having him “sneaking in in the dark” to do a pre-recorded interview.
