Maybe that's why 80%+ of the voters supported Brexit parties? "Brexit parties" - Love it! Labour were deliberately vague on Brexit, they barely mentioned it in their pre-election media campaign and campaign literature. Boom! <- that's the sound of your theory being blown out of the water! 'Soft Brexit' policy won Labour votes in general election, says study https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/aug/01/soft-brexit-policy-won-labour-votes-in-general-election-says-study "One question, about whether it was more important for the government to protect access to the single market or get full control of immigration, showed answers clearly split across party lines. Labour had a lead of more than 40 percentage points with voters seeking the first priority, with a similar margin for the Tories among those who favoured the latter option." Remember that all those new voters chanting Jeremy's name? Well, they might not be singing so loud at the next GE. http://www.hepi.ac.uk/2017/12/18/two-thirds-68-students-now-back-labour-think-labour-55-jeremy-corbyn-58-back-remain/ "Jeremy Corbyn did incredibly well among students and in university cities at this year’s general election. However, this strong support could turn out to be as soft as past student support for the Liberal Democrats. It all depends on Labour’s position in relation to Brexit for nearly all students oppose the UK leaving the EU. While two-thirds of students back Labour, over half of them think Labour is a pro-Remain party. If their perceptions changed, then a high proportion would be less likely to support the party or to abstain from politics." Oh, and.. Jeremy Corbyn 'risks losing young voters if Labour backs leaving the EU' https://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/corbyn-risks-losing-young-voters-if-labour-backs-leaving-the-eu-a3758201.html "Labour’s vote share would plummet from today’s 42 per cent to just 30 per cent if the party is seen to side with Conservatives in going ahead with Brexit."
