What then if there is no deal or a deal at the 11th hour (too late to hold a referendum campaign/vote) and/or the ECJ haven't ruled as to whether revoking A50 is permissible and if stated as being permissible on what terms/conditions (the EP/EC would also probably want to input on that front - negotiate/state on what terms). As such I can't see a referendum being offered anyway, and even it were its only advisory. Such a referendum would also most likely involve another General Election - with Labour forming the government. Worst possible outcome of in the EU under worse terms than before and a weakly opposed Marxist government. Good grief, that would dwarf even the most extreme negative Brexit predictions made by Remainers.
Nice straw man, but just supposition. If we're allowing supposition, then you could equally imagine an agreed extention to the two year period whilst the ECJ rule on revoking A50 and everybody who needs to gets time to vote. If A50 were to be withdrawn then it has already been stated by Donald Trump and quite a few others that the UK would be welcome back, so I'd be surprised if they felt the need to pass another treaty to alter the UK's status!
Whether Corbyn and Labour will win the next election is a red herring, but if they do, then I'd rather be inside the EU with the ECJ's oversite reigning in their powers than outwith, suffering an unfettered Momentum agenda!
