Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The role of Speaker of the House of Commons is indeed markedly different to that of his Irish counterpart. The Speaker has very substantial powers conferred upon him, and his decisions are final and cannot be appealed. The same is not true of the Speaker of the House of Lords, the Lord Speaker, by the way.
