Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem with the idea that the public perceive Corbyn as a frothing at the mouth IRA supporting commie is that the media have been going on about it for so long with almost no corroborating evidence that the public seem mostly to have arrived at the opposite conclusion.

Yes, you can find some people here and there who cite issues with Corbyn himself as their reason for not supporting him, but you invariably end up discovering that these people thought Ed miliband, Gordon Brown and even Blair were left wing beyond the pale. In other words, Corbyn hasn't lost any votes over it cos they were never gonna vote Labour anyway.

There isn't going to be another coalition, whatever the result. The Clegg/Cameron Rose Garden love-in has ensured that the idea of a formal government coalition has received the kiss of death. Corbyn has already announced he will form no coalitions and I see no reason to doubt him. If Labour are the largest party, they will attempt to negotiate a platform for Government on a case by case basis. It's not a good way to govern but it's better than the tories.
