Speculating from ignorance here.

Is it the case that the Letwin amendment forces Boris to apply for the extension?
Yet it does not also forbid him from using the UK's veto to reject the extension h himself requested?

So is it the case that he could come back on Monday saying he has done this and thus now we have 10 days to get the deal done?

Mark. Very strangely for your argument, it would seem that Johnson will not be negotiating for a delay and so effectively will be ignoring the amendment.

Times law section Kirsty Brimelow of @DoughtyStreet writes
Oct 17 Prosecuting Extinction Rebellion protesters is a total waste of time and money

... Bizarrely arguing that cos her clients the protesters are little people and hotel and oil corps are big, they should be able to break the law

Of those MPs who voted on the Letwin amendment, approx 51.3% voted for it and 48.7% voted against it. Using their own logic, presumably Johnson can ignore the vote?

A Chinese company owns Volvo
Thursday's Times has a double page ad from them featuring 2 gigantic wind turbines

"Starting now every new Volvo model will be electrified"

... to me that means existing non electric models will still be sold

Ah actually tgat was the day Volvo had lainched its first all electric car
All upto now have had an engine.

FFS it costs £50K
The XC40 will be made in Belgium and China
A hybrid version will be £41K

Bourg France ,
A American homosexual couple spent three years and €5 million renovating a 17th-century French château to make it a venue for International weddings
, but now fear it could be swamped with wind turbines

'the atmosphere is too much, cos 10% of the locals are horrible cos they are on the side of the farm unions that back wind power,
... most of locals oppose wind power, like us'
