French Election

You are assuming that all those who voted Labour in 2015 will do so again this time around.  In the meantime Corbyn has decimated Labour's standing in the polls, Bradshaw's success is far from assured.

Bradshaw is on dodgy ground.  Now that Brexit is happening the UKIP supporters could turn back to the Tories, which makes his majority pretty thin.  I think he will be lucky to hold onto the seat in the current climate, with Labour being at rock bottom, just as the LibDems are.

"Soft" Brexit is staying in the EU by another name, and it's certainly not what I voted for on June 23rd last year.  That leaves me with only one option when polling day arrives.
