Did the Labor Party lose to the Tories mainly because of the Brexit issue?

After alk, the issue of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union was such a big issue, even bigger than purely domestic issues.

Update:

Clusterfuck?

    That's what all the experts are suggesting, they are calling this election the "Brexit vote" and praising the Tory slogan "Let's get Brexit done".

    I don't think it was about Brexit as such, but rather it was a reaction against out-of-touch metropolitan elites.

    Traditionally, Labour was the party of the working class. Increasingly, however, the party has been taken over by university-educated middle class people who are more interested in feminism, racism, the environment, helping "refugees" and other identity issues. The white working class is feeling that people like Jeremy Corbyn, Emily Thornberry, Sadiq Khan, Diane Abbott, etc are simply not on their side. Labour has been taking its traditional working class vote for granted for a very long time. I remember Peter Mandleson saying that the working class has to vote Labour, because they have nowhere else to go. He was wrong.

    It is a sad example of the manipulation of the masses by Vladimir Putin and his associates interfering in foreign elections!! Just like in the US to get Trump elected! The terrible reality is that Putin is succeeding!!

    That about sums it up and the non commitment of the Labor party leader one way or the other over the issue.
