Downing Street has insisted that the EU Council president's claim that Article 50 will be triggered early next year is only his "interpretation". Donald Tusk let slip, at a summit in Bratislava, that Theresa May wants to begin the formal process to extract Britain from the EU by February 2017.
Outgoing UKIP leader Nigel Farage has launched a blistering attack on the party's only MP, telling Sky News: "He doesn't support anything we do". Douglas Carswell, who defected to UKIP in 2014 and was re-elected last year, was accused by Mr Farage of not contributing to the national party.

First the decision and within minutes the recriminations. The National Executive Committee's verdict to exclude Stephen Woolfe because he was "ineligible as a result of a late submission" is part of much wider power struggle within UKIP.
Three members of UKIP's ruling body have resigned after leadership favourite Steven Woolfe was barred from standing because his application was 17 minutes late. The decision has triggered allegations of a "coup" to change the direction of the party after the departure of Nigel Farage, who backed Mr Woolfe, and tipped UKIP into civil war.
UKIP is on the verge of civil war over the possibility former favourite Steven Woolfe will be excluded from running as party leader. The suggestion has laid bare deep divisions within UKIP, with party members and officials briefing against each other in the race to succeed Nigel Farage.
Theresa May's Brexit committee will meet for the first time as it looks to gear the country up for leaving the European Union. The Prime Minister will chair the meeting of the new committee, which will focus on building up Britain's industrial strategy and promote growth across the country.
The honours system, cloaked in its majestic ceremonies, has for centuries been used to reward the great and good, an award for exceptional achievement or service. But for almost as long it has also been steeped in political controversy, with accusations of corruption and cronyism - accusations levelled at David Cameron's leaked resignation list, which includes dozens of his special advisers and staff.
Former UKIP leadership favourite Suzanne Evans says she has "given up hope" of leading the party as she endorsed a little-known female councillor to replace Nigel Farage. Ms Evans, who is still suspended from UKIP and can't actually vote, is supporting Cambridgeshire councillor Lisa Duffy, to move the party away from its "hard Right" politics.
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
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".
