About 373 times since 1996. That is my estimate using a proxy search for "Mr. Speaker" in the online Hansard.

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
