Tieing the referendum result to a new election is a non-starter on democratic grounds. Many would vote against May's Brexit in order to get an election, and vice versa. Also, turkeys, Christmas.

I agree that Corbyn's presence would make little difference in Brussels (but the promise that the agreement would actually be deliverable might). The main concession they would need is to leave final status hanging, to be negotiated by the winner of the subsequent elections.
