DAVID Mundell should stand down as Secretary of State for Scotland over the Tory party’s £1 billion deal with the DUP, the SNP’s Pete Wishart has said. Over the weekend the Tory minister was quoted in two different newspapers saying he would not “agree to anything that could be construed as back door funding to Northern Ireland.”The MP even told the Sunday Post the deal Theresa May reached with the DUP to prop up his party’s minority government would be a“totally transparent arrangement”.
NICOLA Sturgeon’s decision to “reset” her timetable for an independence referendum was going to leave Scotland as the only country in the European Union without a vote on Brexit, co-convener of the Scottish Greens Patrick Harvie warned. Harvie urged the SNP leader to rethink her caution about pushing on and demanding a Section 30 order just now. “Scotland has not consented to being taken out of the European Union against our will,” he argued during the First Minister’s statement.
DO you remember those early summer days of the General Election campaign of 2017? It feels like a lifetime ago. Everything we thought we knew… everything we know now… crazy heady days. Well, back then you’ll remember Theresa May chose to campaign by hiding away in small rooms, devoid of real people, using only the same few catchphrases again and again and again. Whenever she was asked about independence, she would always replied “Now is not the time”.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
