The Scottish Parliament could effectively be given a veto over Britain's departure from the European Union, it has emerged. Theresa May revealed that Holyrood may have to pass a so-called "legislative consent motion" in order for the Government's Great Repeal Bill to become law at Westminster. The bill is aimed at ending the authority of EU law in the UK by transferring all Brussels legislation onto the Commons statute book.
Theresa May has confirmed that police are investigating a “potential terror attack” after a van drove into a group of pedestrians in north London, killing one person and injuring several more. A 48-year-old man was arrested at the scene of the Seven Sisters road incident, which appears to have been targeting Muslim worshippers leaving the nearby Finsbury Park mosque. The Prime Minister will chair a meeting of the emergency Cobra committee later this morning to discuss the Government’s response.
The Queen’s Speech will take place next Wednesday, the government has announced. The state opening of parliament, when the Queen sets out the government’s legislative agenda for the year ahead, had been due to take place on Monday but was delayed while the Conservatives negotiated a deal with the DUP to support their minority administration. Those talks are ongoing, and it is believed that Theresa May is trying to force the DUP to strike a deal by setting a firm deadline.
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".
