Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Sir Oliver Letwin says he WILL back Boris Johnson's Brexit deal”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sir Oliver Letwin today said he will back Boris Johnson's Brexit deal after the former Tory rebel's wrecking amendment scuppered the PM's EU divorce plans. 

MPs voted for a proposal put forward by Sir Oliver yesterday which required Mr Johnson to comply with the terms of the anti-No Deal law known as the Benn Act and write to the EU asking for an extension. 

Mr Johnson last night submitted an unsigned version of the legally required letter to the EU as he also sent two others making clear the first was not from him and that he does not want a delay. 

The PM is adamant that he will deliver Brexit by October 31 and tomorrow he will try to force a fresh 'meaningful vote' on his deal in the Commons. 

He will also bring forward the legislation needed to actually make the UK's orderly split from Brussels on Halloween a reality.
