22. 'All it can lead to is lost seats...'

No. Labour *gained* seats in the election. This was first and foremost for anti-austerity reasons; but some of it was because the under-25s turned out to vote in large numbers: in part because they thought that Labour is at least less pro-Brexit than the Tories. If Labour join the Tories on a hard Brexit they may lose these voters.

Nearly two-thirds of Labour supporters voted Remain as compared with 40% of Tory supporters.
