It is na´ve beyond belief that if the referendum was ignored and Art 50 was revoked, or another referendum gave remain a small margin victory, that the EU would not take some form of delight in milking the UK for everything they can get away with to punish us for trying, we would end up a bigger laughing stock than people claim we are now, and no country would take us seriously with any deals, any wonder the EU is happy with 'The Deal' as they get to cherry pick the best of the UK without us being able to do anything about it, and still pay for the privilege.
We've recovered from Labour's mismanagement before - remember the "I'm afraid there is no money" letter? We could do so again if we had to.

If we crash out of the EU on your beloved WTO rules - which isn't quite the instant fix you seem to think - the resulting chaos will very likely result in a Labour government as people grasp for something, anything, that promises a relief. So we still get their nose dive anyway.
