4. There's also the question of whether voters will 'punish' for Brexit stance, or vote for other stuff

if Brexit has happened (eg a Labour voter who wanted Brexit to happen, voted Tory or UKIP last time, but if the "UK out of the EU" stage has happened, they might say "domestically, I'll now back Labour" - analogous to Churchill losing to Attlee in 1945). Whether they'd think that way with future negotiation on trade deals coming up, I don't know, but it's one more complication. That could, of course, apply as well to Tory Remainers who went Lib Dem in 2017.
