ANNE MARIE MORRIS IS THE MP FOR NEWTON ABBOT AND HAS BEEN SINCE 2010Last month both the Government and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) released reports on modern slavery and human trafficking. Both of them point out that there are improvements that need to be made in the way we combat this horrible, and often unseen, crime. One of the biggest problems that currently exists is getting to grips with the numbers of those that are in forced servitude.
Anne Marie Morris is the MP for Newton Abbot and has been since 2010. The Prime Minister confirmed that Britain would be seeking a transition deal after we formally leave the EU. While clearly we need time to adjust, for me it is key that no transition period goes beyond two years and that during any such period the UK can negotiate free trade deals with other countries and is no longer bound by the four freedoms, particularly the free movement of people.
The South West has some of the most beautiful scenery in the country and is one of the reasons Devon is such a holiday hotspot, however fly-tipping is becoming an ever growing problem in our rural areas. In 2015/16 local authorities dealt with 936 thousand fly-tipping incidents with an estimated cost of clearance to local authorities in England of £49.8 million.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
