It won't be a pretty sight.
They only have to take about 20 to 30 seats off Labour and that combined with the main anti Brexit Tory rebels no longer in a seat will give Johnson the power to do whatever he wants to go about securing Brexit.
The European elections - although meaningless as such, suggests such a target for the Brexit Party would be quite feasible to achieve as many Labour constituency areas voted for the Brexit Party and against Labour.
If the Labour Party wasn't concerned this would happen again at a GE then they would not be hiding behind the position of needing to have a referendum first.
