Not only did Anna Soubry, Dominic Grieve and Ken Clarke put the government on notice this week that they will keep fighting its destructive Brexit. Justine Greening, who quit the Cabinet last week, has joined their ranks. Perhaps the starkest comment was from Soubry in Tuesday’s debate on the EU Withdrawal Bill in the House of Commons. She said: “All options need to be placed back on the table – and I mean all options.
May’s Brexit pledges have turned to ashes. Was she deluded or dishonest? Hugo DixonThere was no plan behind the promises she made at Lancaster House a year ago – yet the prime minister still triggered article 50. Now we deserve some realismWed 17 Jan 2018 05.00 EST‘The prime minister still isn’t facing the facts.
When Boris Johnson came out for Leave in March 2016, he hinted he was in favour of a double referendum. With the other leading Brexiter, Nigel Farage, saying he is warming to a new referendum, it is time the foreign secretary jumped on the bandwagon. All the more so, since he is having qualms about the whole Brexit business, according to The Sun.
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".
