Share Politics: Ukip in civil war
Nigel Farage says Ukip would be better off with no MPs - than having one who contradicts the leadership. Mr Farage wants their only member of parliament - Douglas Carswell - to be kicked out of the party. However, he does deny that it is because the Clacton MP helped block him from the chance of getting a knighthood. For all this and the rest of the day's political headlines, Simon speaks to Rishi Patel of FTI Consulting.

Is the US tech sector a great opportunity for investors?
Sterling, financial debt and U.S technology firms might not be what spring to mind as an investment opportunity for 2017. Sterling is struggling against the dollar, interest rates look set to rise and President Trump's travel ban has tech firms in the US up in arms as they fear that they won't have access to the worlds top talents. However, these are just some of the areas that Coutts's investment team believe are ripe for investors. To discuss Coutts' 2017 Investment Outlook, timeless Principles in a Changing World, I'm joined by Alastair Jex, head of bespoke and advisory portfolios at Coutts Investment.
