The Daily Express has learnt that international trade secretary Liam Fox has told friends that his department is preparing the case on how no deal is better than EU membership. The revelation comes amid growing frustration with the intransigence of the European Commission in the Brexit talks. Commission chief negotiator Michel Barnier has warned that he may not move the talks on to discussing a trade deal in October because the UK refuses to accept the EU divorce bill demand of £78 billion.
In an article for the Daily Express online, Henry Bolton, who has been sponsored by Nigel Farage in the Ukip leadership contest, has warned that the rise in support for Jeremy Corbyn’s brand of hard Left politics has come from young voters who are ignorant of the Cold War and Communist atrocities. Mr Bolton, a former policeman and army officer, was an administrator in Bosnia after the break-up of Yugoslavia which led to mass murders including the slaughter of 8,000 Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica.
The threat to Britain’s national tree has come after an outbreak of a disease called Xyella fastidiosa on the continent has attacked oak trees in other EU countries. However, despite serious concerns being raised the European Commission has refused to ban the free movement of plants across the continent, allowing the disease to spread. The crisis has echoes of the Dutch elm disease which wiped out many of Britain’s native elms.
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".
