One of the many circles Theresa May is trying to square is how to keep the Irish border open while stopping free movement of people from the EU. The problem is devilishly hard to solve because, since Ireland is part of the EU, all European citizens will continue to have an automatic right to go the Republic.
The government mustn't use the crown's prerogative to trigger Article 50 of the LIsbon Treaty because doing so could lead to Scottish independence. That, in turn, would flout the Act of Union between Scotland and England, an act that can only be overturned by either a general election or another act of parliament.
If you think Britain's two main parties seem conflicted over Brexit, try to imagine what is going in the power-sharing administration of Northern Ireland. Arlene Foster, the First Minister and leader of the Democratic Unionist Party, told her supporters during the referendum campaign that leaving the European Union would be nothing but beneficial.
One of Liam Fox's main tasks will be to construct a new UK tariff to take the place of the EU's Common External Tariff which has hitherto applied to imports into the UK from those third countries with whom the EU does not have special trade arrangements.
The economy is flagging, the Bank of England is cutting interest rates to try and stave off a recession, and The Telegraph knows exactly what's to blame. It's not the referendum result the paper campaigned so hard for. It is, instead, the audacity of those who dared to campaign against it.
If we trigger Article 50 and quit the EU two years later, the economy could suffer a trauma. Hence, an idea gaining currency that we should spend several years in a half-way house post Brexit. During that period, we would figure out our long-term trade deal with the EU.
With President Recep Tayyip Erdogan backing the death penalty in response to last month's coup attempt, Turkey is close to disqualifying itself from being an EU member. It's a pity UK voters didn't know the idea that Turkey was about to join the club wasn't serious when they voted to quit it.
This is a mistake. No Brexit is a good Brexit - except in Leavers' dreams. Rather than spending energy to ameliorate the Brexit terms, we should demand the Brexit that Leavers promised. We know it's impossible. But that's not our fault. Here are eight top promises Brexiteers shouldn't be allowed to wriggle out of.
The government will have to find ways of restricting immigration that deliver on the expectations of those that voted for Brexit, but at the same time are not administratively complex for business and do not upset our European neighbours.
Theresa May's mantra that "Brexit means Brexit" was enough to win the Tory party leadership. But it is a vacuous statement, as nobody knows what Brexit means. The prime minister's job is now to define it. The first, tricky, step is to convince her cabinet colleagues of whatever vision she plumps for.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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.
