Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suspect you are right and that Corbyn has dismissed the EP elections as a matter of no importance right now, but that is to ignore the momentum they could give to Farage and BoJo. If Farage "wins" the EP elections with 30% the media will studiously ignore the fact that Remainer parties got more than that and will focus on Labour being humiliated despite the fact that the Tories polled far worse.

Momentum for a second referendum could stall, and disgruntled Tory MPs could fall in behind a BoJo premiership where he can simply run the clock down to a no deal Brexit. Perhaps that is what Corbyn wants, but I doubt that is what a growing majority of Britons want.

But hey, they don't matter much anyway do they? Despite the pretence at "populism".
