They were known as the tenement Tories and they were a force to be reckoned with. Their heartland was Cathcart in Glasgow, where the red sandstone tenements were home to working-class families who prided themselves on decency and respectability. The tenement Tories took a tough line on morality, law and order, family values and self-reliance, and in the 1960s and 1970s the very mention of their name could strike fear into the hearts of a complacent Scottish Labour party.
To the untrained eye the issues in Scottish Labour’s leadership contest seem pretty clear. What we have here is a classic battle between lefties and moderates, with tasty rammies on the side about Richard Leonard’s English accent and Anas Sarwar’s choice of private schooling for his kids. Yet there is another debate at play here, just below the surface. It gets little airing in public but dominates many a private conversation among party comrades.
Naomi Eisenstadt’s comments are likely to fuel the growing debate about whether universal benefits backed by the SNP government are value for money Rui Vieira PhotographyChild benefit should be taxed and winter fuel payments for the elderly should be curbed, according to the Scottish government’s former poverty tsar. In an interview in The Times today, Naomi Eisenstadt says these universal benefits are not an equitable way to spend public money.
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".
