How Change UK Could Have Become The Government

30th April 2019: CHUK members worry that Lib Dems will do well in upcoming elections and undermine their reason to be. A crisis meeting is organised for tomorrow. Yorkshire village of Tethersby noticed to have vanished.

1st May 2019: CHUK holds meeting at Wollastone's home in Totnes, as she's well respected by all members. PM May arrives at bunker to be informed of Tethersby situation, which appears to be a contagion which is now spreading fast.

2nd May to 3rd May 2019: Martial law declared in UK. Bulk of Crossed and refugees from the north are being contained; Yorkshire written off. Outbreaks that have spread elsewhere include London.

4th May 2019: PM's bunker confirmed infected. A severely wounded Prince Harry, now automatically King Henry IX, has as many surviving MPs as possible taken to emergency command on HMS Queen Elizabeth to imply there's still civilian control. Change UK MPs make up half of the unity government and Heidi Allen is made Prime Minister.

5th May to 11th May: Pacification of Crossed infection. Between nine to eleven million dead. PM Allen promises elections will be held as soon as possible and the country will be restored.

12th May: Chuka Ummunah launches breakaway British New Deal Party. Government loses majority.

Tolkein as leader of some sort of Eco-Paternalist State using tree names as factions is amazing.

Wait...

Ralph Bakshi? That's brilliant.

I'm assuming the 'Oaks' are sort of a broadly conservative faction on the new political centre, the 'Ashes' are the more socially liberal inclined sort, the 'Thorns' are a sort of workers first hardline protectionist grouping and the 'Elms' are a sort of 'Progressive' party in the modern sense of the term?

I'm glad you liked it! :D

The central idea is one I've had bouncing about my brain for ages, I dabbled in it a bit at the other place like 2 years ago with an infobox but decided a list would be fun.


General idea is Oaks are indeed the mainstream, conservative dominant faction but with spiritual overtones that blur the line between Anglicanism and a few bits of druidic aesthetics. Ashes are the reformists and proper Christian Democrats, most come from the CoE. Thorns again yeah, protectionist and militarist and most of their leaders have military experience. Elms finally are yeah progressives, feminists, internationalists who want to open the dominion up a little.

1989-1991: Donald Dewar (Labour)
1991-1995: Paul Channon (Conservative)

1991 (Majority): Donald Dewar (Labour), David Owen (Radical)
1995-1997: Jack Straw (Labour)
1995 (Coalition with Radicals): Paul Channon (Conservative), Vince Cable (Radical), Robert Kilroy-Silk (Law & Justice)
1996 MMP Referendum: YES 57%, NO 43%
1997-: Edwina Currie (Conservative)
1997 (Coalition with Law & Justice): Jack Straw (Labour), Robert Kilroy-Silk (Law & Justice), Vince Cable (Radical), Peter Tatchell (Democratic Left)

Basically, Heath gets his majority to smash the unions and bring about his vision of the Social Market, with mixed success. The crises of the seventies wear on as Heath establishes an iron grip on his party and on much of Westminster politics, and the deep recession of the early eighties shatters Heath's political project decisively. The Labour Party, confused and exhausted, their union allies severely weakened by Heath, eventually takes a massive risk on David Owen, who becomes the youngest Prime Minister since Lord Liverpool. Owen proves less than keen on reversing some of Health's denationalisations and restrictions on the Labour movement and if anything furthers them, seeking his own vision of an increasingly deregulated social market. Chancellor Edmund Dell becomes Owen's chief ally in this project, and frequently appeared to take pleasure in antagonising the Labour Left.

But personal popularity and electoral victories quelled Owen's internal critics, even as he drifted further and further away form the Labour Party and away from the right. Dell's retirement severely weakened Owen, who pressed on. The Dyke report- an ambitious programme of deregulations and denationalisations- ignited the simmering resentment from the party and cabinet towards Owen's increasingly autocratic and liberal approach, forcing a climbdown. To the shock of the entire country, Owen resigned as Prime Minister a month later, claiming that his cabinet and parliamentary party had become impossible to work with. Just as his former Home Secretary had started to pick up the pieces and tried to prepare the country for the approaching global recession, Westminster was rocked again. Former Prime Minister David Owen, along with some Labour allies and a couple of sympathetic stragglers from the Tories, founded the Radical Party, deciding that the reforms Britain so desperately needed could not be achieved from inside any of the established parties.

After a very good showing in the 1991 General Election, the Radicals were quickly overwhelmed by feuding as the Tories cracked on with brutal austerity measures and the third party was wracked over potential co-operation with either one of the big two parties, a position quickly resolved after their founder quit the party in a huff in 1994, successfully standing as an independent in Plymouth Devonport (With the Radicals standing down for him) the next year. The 1995 general election was deeply inconclusive; the Conservatives were deeply unpopular from four years of spending cuts and the Labour Party hadn't yet decided what it wanted to be. Added to the mix was a an Owen-era junior minister, who quit the Shadow Cabinet over the increasingly pro-European stance and found a lot of support for a more broad populist outfit in era of rising crime and voter cynicism. Eventually, Jack Straw and Vince Cable were able to form a coalition that barely satisfied both parties, with an agreement for a referendum on electoral reform. The shockingly decisive win for the reformists quickly soured the Labour side of the coalition, and between that and disagreements on how best to move forward from austerity collapsed the coalition a year later.

(This was an old idea I had for a TL, which would be done in the form of a documentary about the Owen years and the neoliberal reforms. I might even do it some day)

A few rationales here;

You'll notice the Great War begins in 1908 and only finally ends in 1920 - my logic here is that Ze Germans in WW1 seem to be kind of Nazi-y in Sky Captain and I think that's only really possible if the Germans go full on Endsieg and WW1 stretches on for years and years.

It also features the rapid rise of women in the World of Tomorrow - the longer WW1 leads to a higher deathtoll and hence a rather worse gap between the male and female populations. This allows women to ascend to high ranks in the military after the war.

The British Empire is still top dog, and reinforced by Jan Smuts' legacy - the Imperial Air Legion (attached to the Royal Navy).

1937-1938: Gerald C. MacGuire (Redeemer, Social Front, American Freedom Front, Patriot’s Party, American Fascist-Socialist Movement)
1940-1943: William D. Pelley (National Christian “Silver Shirt”)

The January Uprising as it was remembered was an aberration of American Democracy that very quickly devolved into farce. A Fascist uprising led by Social Club type Veterans organizations and initially lead by a self-professed Socialist lasted little over a week as it collapsed. The President was captured, the Vice President was killed, most of Congress and the Senate were captured and yet the lack of a unified vision or consistant goals made the thing shatter upon itself. Perhaps, had MacArthur been wooed things would have been different, and perhaps that might not have been as hard as he would long after deny considering his own views and ties to many of the men who became "The National Corporate Board" which met in the War Department during the Siege of Washington he led. Perhaps had the plan gone off more smoothly Roosevelt would have simply given in and appointed Butler as a Secretary of General Affairs as had been originally hoped. But the astroturf was thick and the ground game light. US Governors across the nation met in Chicago and simply declared a new Government, fishing out the most senior administration figure not compromised (At least with these crimes) and outside of the Fascist area of control and signed a letter granting him Emergency Powers, the Armed Forces were willing to accept this for a time and the thing was over in days. And yet it there would be the ever more farcical three coups within the plot, until Butler having seized power once more simply surrendered in exchange for a pardon and the guarantee of his pension. His final rival, Davis was initally to be part of the surrender but split after the senior leadership was not granted similar privileges, he would be arrested by J. Edgar Hoover in Maryland. With the exception of Butler who was expelled from the country and forced to relocate to Cuba, all the other acting presidents of the plot and nearly all of the NCB would be executed before 1938. Gerald MacGuire the Legionary dynamo at the heart of the plot would be dispatched the day General Johnson had assumed leadership to head to Texas to try and win over political support from Southern Governors, able to escape to Mexico he would remain there until December of 1938 when a General Amnesty after the last executions was proclaimed by the Second Roosevelt Administration.

That said some would not accept their pardons, and remain underground, an ever more comic affair until in 1940 upon the Roosevelt administrations declaration of War against Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy in the Oregon Badlands a new proclamation by a new "National Corporate Board" created from the ether declared a New American Chief as heir to the "Government of the Glorious '35"

My personal hill I will die on is that Butler made the whole thing up but it's fun and everyone should read @Mumby's Chasing Shadows about it being an actual thing.
I kind of want it to be real, just because the idea of a bunch of rich businessmen picking notorious critic of American corporations Smedley Butler as their plot's leader tickles me pink.

You have to remember that if we follow Butler's chronology - he was approached by Maguire in the late summer/autumn of 1934 - at which point in time I believe Butler was more well known for his illustrious career as a marine and his brief tenure as Philadelphia Director of Public Safety in which he carried out actions some fascists may find admirable.
