I gave it a try last night, after turning into our road and making sure there was nobody behind me. I pulled and held onto the handle, and the handbrake did indeed apply. Nowhere near as hard as I'd have liked if I'd have had brake failure and needed to stop in a hurry, but better than nothing I suppose.

Other than on ice (and probably particularly slippery ice at that) I'd say that handbrake turns are out of the question.
