Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What would be the point of voting for Labour if both May and Corbyn were campaigning on the basis of the same deal? It would be open season for UKIP and Tory Brexiteers to blame all the short comings of the deal on May/Corbyn - and with May having been displaced as Tory leader and already consigned to yesteryear.

Labour would be on their own campaigning for a Tory deal with the Tories having already abandoned it and elected a new leader.

If Labour can pin this deal on the Tories, and the Tories alone, on the other hand, there would be a historic opportunity to cast the Tories into outer darkness for perhaps a generation, with the Lib Dems perhaps even displacing them in the Westminster duopoly.
