His latest amendment would withhold approval of the prime minister's deal until the legislation to enact it agreement with EU Council - the EU withdrawal bill- is passed approved. This might happen next week. Passing the Letwin amendment would trigger the Benn act European Union (Withdrawal)(No. 2) Act 2019 [no], which compels Johnson to request an extension to article 50 if a deal cannot be agreed.

Letwin said he supported Johnson's deal and it was "sensible", but that he wanted to make sure there is an "insurance policy" that if the Brexit deal is approved but something goes wrong at a later stage the government has an extension already in place so there is no possible way the country can crash out without a deal. The deadline in the Benn act is 11pm on Saturday, so this is an attempt to close down a potential loophole [?].

WHO IN HELL WANTS TO DO BUSINESS WITH THESE WANKERS?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
