The DUP's Westminster leader Nigel Dodds tonight declared he wanted to work with the Government to end the 'dark tunnel of austerity' with no new sign of any formal deal with the Tories on the horizon. Mr Dodds spoke favourably of the Government agenda but did not signal that a deal with Theresa May had yet been finalised. Mrs May wants the DUP, founded by Ian Paisley, to commit its 10 MPs to a 'confidence and supply' agreement that will help stabilise her minority government.
The population of the UK has seen its sharpest annual increase in nearly 70 years driven mainly by immigration, official figures have revealed. There were an estimated 65,648,000 people living in the country at the end of June last year. Over the 12 months to the middle of 2016, numbers rose by 0.8 per cent or 538,000 - roughly equivalent to the size of Bradford. London was growing twice as fast as Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland.
Theresa May today offered a heartfelt apology to victims of the Grenfell Tower blaze - saying the help for displaced and bereaved families 'was not good enough'. The Prime Minister said she 'took responsibility' for the 'failure of the state, local and national' to provide assistance in the aftermath of the horrific fire. And she admitted that victims of the disaster were left homeless, without any belongings or even basic information or help.
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".
