Theresa May racked up donations worth almost £4million between July and September despite the election disaster, new figures revealed today. The Tory coffers were bolstered by a £1million bequest and donors continued to hand over cash despite questions over Mrs May's future.

British workers face the loss of two decades of earnings growth and austerity is not over, leading economists warned today in a brutal review of the Budget. The Institute for Fiscal Studies warned slow growth meant Britain's debts might not be back to pre-crisis levels until the 2060s. Paul Johnson, the influential think tank's director, said it was 'truly astonishing' that real earnings could still be below their 2008 levels in 2022.
A Brexit divorce deal could be hammered out in just three weeks under a 'road map' drawn up by negotiators in Brussels and London. Talks are aimed at breaking an impasse on Britain's exit bill, citizens' rights and the Irish border by December 4 ahead of a major EU summit 10 days later. Theresa May will meet EU Council President Donald Tusk in Brussels on Friday and is slated to have dinner with EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on December 4.
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".
