If Labour pushes its core voters to turn out for the EU Referendum could increase the #Brexit vote

Labour’s stated intent of chasing their core voters to ensure they vote in the EU referendum could be an own goal.
From my experience of canvassing in such an area, many would favour Brexit.
Those voters would probably avoid committing to a choice, rather than go against Labour’s official stance.
But, if pushed to vote, they might not see it as going against Labour but going against cheap immigrant Labour.
It’s unwise getting them to think about what loyalty they might owe Labour or what Labour has, or hasn’t, done for them, in recent decades.
In fact, what is the present Labour party to them, except an alternative to their present ally, Cameron and his Tories?
