  1. A Rory vote could help the pound

    The six Tory leadership hopefuls Jeremy Hunt, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Rory Stewart, Dominic Raab and Sajid Javid

    Researchers at the University of Liverpool previously found that Google searches can be a good way to predict movements in financial markets, and they believe this theory can be applied to politics as well.

    At the moment, Google Trends shows that Conservative leader hopeful Rory Stewart is more popular than Boris Johnson.

    Professor Costas Milas, of the University of Liverpool's management school, thinks there is a good chance that the pound could rebound.

    "I assume that Conservative MPs will vote based on the ability of candidates to capture the public sentiment and bring votes to the party. This is definitely the case with Rory Stewart who has a clear view against no-deal Brexit," he said.

    "If Rory goes through this evening, sterling will bounce back up."
