Why is anyone surprised that a Conservative government has yet again caved in cravenly to industry and produced a shaming non-policy on childhood obesity? That's what Conservatives do in any clash between business and the environment or general wellbeing, a bias towards profit neatly disguised with a pretended objection to "the nanny state" taking over from personal responsibility.
A fish rots from the head, but the NHS may be rotting from the feet. Podiatry is not up there in the headlines, yet what's going on in that unglamorous zone is an alarming microcosm of the downward path of the health service.
The best part of the judgment was the ruling that Labour's own governing body, the national executive committee, should be the "ultimate arbiter" of its own rules, and not the courts. The courtroom is entirely the wrong place to settle political disputes.
Another day, and another court is asked to adjudicate on Labour's woes. It's no place for resolving the politics of deep schism, but that's how it is. The agony - maybe even the death rattle - of Labour keeps the political pages and social media alive in the long August days of the parliamentary break.
Inbred? That's about as abusive as anyone can be about a community, this time the "poor ghetto" of the Isle of Wight. When it comes from someone overseeing the nation's educational standards, it's outrageous.
This is what market failure looks like. There's a shortage of HGV drivers in an economy that relies on moving mountains of heavy goods. Road haulage companies complain bitterly that they can't recruit; operators are turning business away for lack of drivers.
How did Jeremy Hunt keep his job? On reshuffle day the BBC reported he was gone, but after an exceptionally long session inside No 10 he saved his skin, emerging with that grin and a tweet saying he was "thrilled". Junior doctors were less than thrilled, since Hunt's survival signals no turning back on the dispute he has caused.
The new Work and Pensions secretary, Damian Green, yesterday slipped out yet another delay, to 2022, for the full rollout of the troubled universal credit scheme, 11 years after it was announced. That gives Theresa May and Green a chance to think again about their priorities: does she really mean what she says about hard-pressed working families?
The person Theresa May trounced most crushingly was on her own side - her predecessor. Serious and commanding, she showed how PMQs should be done - with forensic fact and deadly precision alongside flick-knife jabs. How far this was from David Cameron's red-faced bluster and bullying refusal to answer any question.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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.
