    The speaker has to remain impartial. He has to be careful, given his most recent verbal rhetoric (speeches made in the US), any hint that he favours one side over the other and he could be unseated as speaker. Remember, he always said he would vacate the speakers chair this summer, although absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    Absolutely right the speaker can be replaced by a simple confidence vote. If he doesn't get replaced then it's clear where the majority of the MPs are on the debate and in that case:

    be afraid
    .....be very afraid
    I'm alright Jack
