Leonard is already facing a mini rebellion over Brexit at his first party conference, with his predecessor Kezia Dugdale, former shadow Scottish secretary Ian Murray and MEP Catherine Stihler banging the drum to keep Britain in the European single market. Leonard backs Corbyn’s plan for “tariff-free access to the single market in a customs union” without actually being in the single market and customs union but insists he’s “quite relaxed” about the internal debate raging within the party.
Jeremy Corbyn was widely dismissed as “unelectable” until he increased Labour’s vote share by nearly 10 per cent and wiped out the Tory majority with 30 new MPs. Meanwhile, during the independence referendum campaign, Scots were persistently told that things were different north of the border. Scotland didn’t vote Tory and yet it regularly ends up with Tory governments, it was claimed.
Glasgow (AFP) - Scotland's tight-knit curling community pledged Friday to come back stronger after their Olympians saw their chance of a gold medal evaporate in Pyeongchang. Despite the disappointment of their defeat to Sweden in the semi-final, Britain's women are still in with the chance of a bronze medal on Saturday. The men's team were knocked out earlier. The sport of curling is literally part of the Scottish landscape.
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".
