    Advancements in technologies made obsolete before they were perfected IOTL

    How would the Soviets react to An Australian ISOT?

    Right, but when matters. Early - Mid Cold War USSR has little ability to hit Australia quickly.

    How would the Soviets react to An Australian ISOT?

    Depends when right? If say 1970, then all bets are off. If late 1980s then fatalism panic

    1921 Referendum on Southern Rhodesia admission to the USA

    Would be interesting to see how Southern Rhodesia ends up in this, given that the oft repeated criticism of the federation was that it was a project designed to improve the south over the northern bits

    Advancements in technologies made obsolete before they were perfected IOTL

    Not quite the same premise but I've always been interested by irrigation technology. On the farm we had three arguably distinct technologies - flood, centralised high pressure spray and decentralised low pressure spray so portable they're often towed by motorbike. The first being constructed in...

    The Phoenix Foundation: Libertarian colonialism

    Problem for this is that I don't think anyone here really knows in any detail what ANZ's policy was to the Pacific Islands in 1980. We can make some assumptions based on NZ attitudes to Vietnam, nuclear testing, to Fiji and all that - but one would probably need access to JSTOR or a good uni...

    WI: Conservative-DUP Agreement 2015

    If we end up with CUPUK - DUP 2015 then EuRef would surely be very different in all sorts of ways. Who knows what conditions latter would put on the campaign itself? Amusingly, we could even see a more active attempt by government to explain both options if it isn't allowed to endorse Remain...
