London - European Union governments are refusing to grant the UK any leeway on the link between immigration and trade as it prepares to leave the bloc, raising the likelihood of a "hard Brexit".
Bankers are turning up the volume in their bid to win a transitional deal that would allow those based in London to keep providing services across the bloc on similar terms after Brexit.
European Union governments are refusing to grant the U.K. any leeway on the link between immigration and trade as it prepares to leave the bloc, raising the likelihood of a "hard Brexit."
London should brace itself for a "substantial" correction in house prices if Brexit forces the economy to stagnate, according to UBS. A severe recession could halt the "unsustainable price growth fueled by amply liquidity and tight supply," the Swiss bank said Tuesday in a report.
Few would have called George Osborne soft when as Chancellor of the Exchequer he imposed the biggest fiscal squeeze on the U.K. economy since World War II. Now a victim of the Brexit vote and out of office, Osborne is pushing for a more moderate form of Brexit than that pursued by some in Prime Minister Theresa May's government.
The World Economic Forum named Switzerland the most competitive nation for an eighth straight year as it warned less open trade was threatening economic growth globally. Switzerland was ahead of Singapore and the U.S. in the annual rankings of 138 countries, with Netherlands overtaking Germany to take the fourth spot.
Former Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said the U.K. economy will suffer if Britain pursues a "hard" break with the European Union. In his first television interview since losing office after June's Brexit referendum, Osborne told Bloomberg that Prime Minister Theresa May should seek to maintain "the closest possible economic and financial relationship" with the bloc.
Trade Secretary Liam Fox said the U.K. will "continue to uphold" its commitments to the World Trade Organization even after it leaves the European Union. "The U.K. is a full and founding member of the WTO," Fox told a conference of the organization in Geneva on Tuesday.
U.K. Trade Secretary Liam Fox heads to the World Trade Organization today to sit on a panel alongside Director General Roberto Azevedo. While the topic is small enterprizes and commerce, onlookers will be monitoring it for clues to Fox's vision for trade post-Brexit.
It was a busy weekend in Brexit Britain, with the one remaining U.K. party leadership contest coming to its (foregone) conclusion, and a key Remainer taking a few well-aimed jabs at the new prime minister. Elsewhere, serious matters are afoot.
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
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".
