    Question Commas and that role.

    Hello. What is role first comma and following that, second comma the inside of the sentence below? Why are there the comma as well as that?

    Busines insider warn that, should Mr David and his cronies try to keep control of the busines, a power struggle is likely.

    Re: Commas and that role.

    The heart of the sentence is "Business insiders warn that a power struggle is likely." The part in the middle is set off by commas because it is a different clause.
