Craig Oliver's Brexit book is not meant to expose David Cameron's strategic errors. The former prime minister's director of politics and communications is at pains to defend his boss's actions and his own. But his fly-on-the-wall account of the campaign - Unleashing Demons - inadvertently rams home how the dead hand of Downing Street lost the referendum.
The government was forced to agree last week to a full and transparent debate on its Brexit plan before Article 50 is triggered. A cross-party group of MPs led by Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg - former leaders of Labour and the Lib Dems respectively - are now demanding a vote on the government's plan.
There probably isn't a majority in either parliament or public for a destructive Brexit. That means Philip Hammond has a strong hand if he holds his nerve and refuses to back any deal that makes Britain poorer. At present, the chancellor is probably unsackable.
Theresa May has a perfect opportunity next week to undo some of the damage caused by the anti-foreigner rhetoric of the Conservative Party conference. At her first European summit on Oct. 20, she should guarantee the rights of the 3.2 million people settled in UK.
The Daily Mail accused those fighting for parliamentary sovereignty of being unpatriotic and undemocratic in a rabid full-page editorial yesterday. The article's headline read: "Whingeing. Contemptuous. Unpatriotic. Damn the Bremoaners and their plot to subvert the will of the British people." It is actually the tabloid which is being unpatriotic and undemocratic.
The government probably won't be using its strongest counter-argument in the legal battle over whether it has the authority to trigger Article 50 that starts in the high court today. This is because the argument is legally smart but politically toxic. Theresa May's main argument is that she can use the royal prerogative to invoke Article 50.
Theresa May has made half a U-turn, conceding a Commons debate before she triggers Article 50. MPs, who had expressed outrage that the prime minister was trying to undermine parliamentary sovereignty , must now press their advantage. This means forcing the government to spell out its Brexit plan and agree to a vote on it.
PARIS - The louder the Brexit rhetoric grows at home, the more united European partners become in resisting political or economic concessions to Britain. That was the main lesson of last week's Conservative Party conference and the reaction to it across continental Europe.
Theresa May wants to neuter parliament, saying it's her right alone to interpret the people's will. Democrats throughout the ages have fought against the executive trying to turn parliament into a rubber stamp. Today's freedom lovers - however they voted in the referendum - must stop this latest attempt to curb parliament.
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".
