What's the problem with 1? I mean, obviously, a huge chunk of MPs fear Corbyn as an Evil Socialist. But with everything that's happened, I'd have thought they'd have figured out by now that socialism requires legislation, so they could always not vote for it, and have Corbyn as a dangling, impotent PM able to do only what they let him. Just like Johnson, only more agreeable to their will.

The media, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats do not want to let Corbyn near power, even if closely circumscribed, lest getting to know him as a leader might legitimize him in the publie eye.
