51-37: Finis Valorum (Confederation)

37-18: Sheev Palpatine (Unity)
37: votes for; Coruscant, Naboo, Corellia, Eriadu. Votes against; Serenno, Alderaan, Trade Federation
18-00: Sheev I, Palpatine (Galactic Empire)
Empire de facto ruled by Darth Sidious

(A different take on the prequel timeline/a prequel TL based exclusively on info its ANH and its novelisation for the limitations but borrowing heavily from other areas.)

The Galactic Republic is vast, bloated, and corrupt: its Chancellors for life have become puppets of the seven major interest groups with electoral rights, whilst the Republics hundreds of planets act as more or less autonomous bodies, waging war against one another and exploiting loopholes in the Republic Constitution. The glory days of the Republic are long over, with a century and a half of massive depopulation having produced a vast and empty galaxy, populated by mysterious ancient sentient droids, and roamed by bandits. For nearly a century, the petty Kings, Princes, and Warlords of the galaxy have waged brutal wars with armies of short-lived clone soldiers, whilst corporate interests like the Banking Clan and Trade Federtaion run amok. In the Outer Rim the ruthless Hutt Clan rules a private criminal empire, whilst an emboldened Chiss Ascendancy harries the Republic's frontiers.

The 'First Clone War' breaks out when the clone army of Jango Fett, a ruthless clone Condottiere attacks the planet of Naboo in the hopes of securing freedom for their brothers, only being beaten back by an alliance of the Jedi and an army of non-sentient Trade Federation Droids. The heroes of the Battle of Naboo are the Jedi Masters, martyred Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi and Obi-Wan's apprentice Vader, Princess Amidala, and the Tatooinian fighter pilot Anakin Skywalker. The Jedi discover the hand of the Sith, their assumed destroyed ancient enemy, in the revolt, but cannot find the mysterious Darth Sidious. The war leads to the impeachment of Finis Valorum as anti-Clone and pro-centralisation Senator Sheev Palpatine is elected the new Chancellor.

But Palpatine's policies lead to a Second Clone War as Fett returns and a clone army under Fett's clone son Boba joins his war. On Coruscant pacifist Alderaan Senator and Crown Prince Bail Organa and his fiancée Amidala attempt to persuade Palpatine to seek peace, whilst the once mysterious Jedi take an increasingly prominent role even as Palpatine and Wilhuff Tarkin begin construction of a new Grand Army of the Republic. Fett is defeated once again at the Battle of Genesis, but fearing the tyranny of Palpatine Alderaan and Serenno under the former Jedi Count Dooku also rebel, with the support of the Chiss and several other rogue clone armies. At the same time Anakin begins his training as a Jedi whilst he Obi-Wan, and Vader search for the Sith Lords.

After discovering the Sith Lords on Exogol, the three Jedi find Darth Sidious and discover that he has masterminded the Clone Wars. But it is too late, and the corrupted Vader strikes down Anakin before joining Sidious, though not before he can be maimed by Obi-Wan. The Third Clone War becomes an all-out Galactic Civil War between Centralists and Decentralists, and Obi-Wan and many other Jedi join Alderaan and the decentralists, and are otherwise wiped out as they are accused of orchestrating the war and subverting the Republic. The decentralists are a doomed cause, and are defeated by Palpatine, who under Sidious and Vaders' influence crowns himself Emperor. The Republic thus dies to be replaced by a Sith manipulated Empire as one of Anakin and Padme's children is given to the unwitting Bail Organa and the other is whisked away to Tatooine by Obi-Wan...
For some reason I all found it funny that Palpatine’s first name is Sheev and that not even his enemies calls him that after becoming Emperor

The following is a list I started working on over Christmas and have just got round to finishing. It is long, and features only two prime ministers, and is so nowpunk it is kinda out of date my the time it's posted. And arguably it isn't a Prime Ministers list. But then, what is a Prime Ministers List? It's like asking what art is. It's what you find. It's an abstract concept. It's in the wind. It defies easy definition. But, Behold:

1445945035-d2c1c850292c22f73e072c8946213bcd-600x6002-233x300.jpg
I am (classic) Legend

2020

January: Brexit goes through on 31 January.

February: Ed Davey elected Lib Dem leader, defeating Layla Moran.

March: Keir Starmer elected Labour leader, defeating Rebbecca Long-Bailey, and Lisa Nandy.

Chancellor: Ben Bradshaw
Home: Angela Eagle
Foreign: Hilary Benn
BEIS: Liz Kendall
Health: Rebecca Long-Bailey
Education: Sarah Champion
Justice: Rachel Reeves
Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Ed Milliband
Women and Equalities: Jess Philips
Work and Pensions: Stephen Kinnock
Defence: Dan Jarvis

July: Trans Pride Brighton is interrupted by a group of anti-trans protestors who attempt to block the march. Women's Place UK had arranged for a group of detransitioners to hold a die in in front of the march. The protestors were dragged away and a few were trampled and while the issues of safeguarding were raised - such as that the detransitioners had not been told what they were lying down in front of - the media narrative was trans activists assault feminist group. The discourse on trans rights would become far less tolerant after this.

August: Magid Magid and Alexandra Phillips are elected co-leaders of the Green Party in a close election against incumbents Jon Bartley and Sian Berry. Jenny Jones and Shahrar Ali run a third option campaign and, as their second preference voters go mostly to Magid and Phillips, they blame the outgoing leadership's bias towards trans people as a big reason for their defeat. Shahrar leave the party in September, saying that the party has lost its way. It was noted that in September the party had finally begun a long awaited investigation into his antisemitism.

November: After a series of missteps the government agrees to a one year extension on the final Brexit Deal. Dominic Raab resigns as Foreign Secretary and is replaced with Michael Gove.

2021

March: Liz Truss' car is intentionally crashed into on her way to her constituency office. The attacker, who is broadly associated with ISIS, is killed in the attack. Liz Truss is hospitalised for three months and is out of politics for the rest of the year, returning to westminster in late 2022 as the first Conservative Party wheelchair using MP.

May: A wave of devolved assembly elections: in Wales Mark Drakeford (Labour) is returned as First Minister. In Scotland Nicola Sturgeon (SNP) wins a majority again, and in Northern Ireland Chris Hazzard (Sinn Fein) wins a plurality, however the DUP make it clear that they will not go into government without the UUP, to give a majority within government for Unionism. This is rejected and debates in Northern Ireland will continue for another year. In England, the government releases its report on devolution, offering regional mayors (elected by FPTP) to 30 cities and combined authorities, covering the whole of the UK. These are to be phased in gradually with the first full English election to take place in 2026.

December: A final deal on Brexit is finally reached. The economy has been reacting to (and contracting due to) Brexit for years and the final separation is not as much of a crash as was feared.

2022

March: Queen Elizabeth II dies, memorials take place across the country, flowers pile up. King Charles III is appointed. Plans begin for a coronation, but the funeral defines the year.

May: Baitul Futuh Mosque is burned to the ground by white nationalist terrorists.

June: The first UK Straight Pride March takes place in London. The LGB Alliance makes it clear that they condemn the organisers and coincidentally host a rally that day on the Fringe, Women's Place UK affirms that straight people have a right to march and attend the after party to talk about the horrors of medical transition on children (the last NHS GIC to deal with trans people closed in 2021), Posie Parker's new "Biology Party" leads the march and puts out a progressive case for the march - arguing that over-representation of gay men in the media and professions is taking away opportunities from women. Steven Morrissey attends the march as leader of For Britain although he is banned from speaking at a panel on men's rights after Phillip Davies MP refuses to go on stage with him at the last minute.

September: IndyRef2 takes place - but is not sanctioned by the UK government. Yes wins 75.2%, No gets just 24.8% but many people boycott the contest, the turnout is 60.1%

November: The Data and Investigatory Powers Act 2022 updates the UK's security policies, allowing the UK government to access more voice recording data collected passively, along with third party data, and content along with metadata. It increases the number of government services that can access this data and allows agencies to retain information indefinitely without a warrant. VPNs are banned and other forms of encryption are increased.

2023

May: A collapse in the Chinese economic sector begins that will have widespread implications throughout the world. Not least in Britain, where it exacerbates existing post-Brexit issues.

June: Manchester Pride announces measures to ensure that Pride will remain a celebration that's inclusive for all the community and will not be bogged down in fighting - anti-trans groups and trans groups are banned from attending and new Public Order Act powers are used to ensure that the inevitable protests and counter-protests keep away from the march. The Biology Party argues that this move effectively bans women from the march, the LGB Alliance complains that this move bans gay people, and the new Uprising Party argues that this bans trans people. However it is noted that the usual run of protests and violence which are becoming such a feature of the month, are far less pronounced in Manchester this year. The pattern will be followed by other big Pride celebrations over the next few years.

July: Coronation of Charles III provides a much needed boost to the country as economic news and news from abroad worsens. The coronation is followed on thousands of channels and by social media and an estimated 3 billion people followed the ceremony around the world. A wave of dawn raids clear protest leaders although some small protests do take place when President Trump visits Scotland.

August: Joanna Cherry takes over as SNP Leader & First Minister of Scotland, having moved from Westminster in 2021.

October: The NHS's six Gender Identity Clinics are closed down and replaced with three Gender Dysphoria Centres. These specify they are for people with binary gender dysphoria sufficient to threaten executive functioning. The NHS warns there will be a slight delay for new patients as current ones are reassessed.

December: The Scottish government passes a resolution granting themselves the right to hold a binding referendum on independence, which the UK government denies. The SNP plan to take this to the International Court of Justice.

2024

May: General election

Boris Johnson (Conservative): 326
Keir Starmer (Labour): 209

Joanna Cherry (SNP): 38
Ed Davey (Lib Dem): 8

Chris Hazzard (Sinn Fein): 7

  • Environment: Green Industrial Revolution with £250 billion in funding over 5 years.
  • Constitution: Replace the House of Lords with an elected second chamber, introduce councillors in the English Devolved Authorities

  • Constitution: Introduce PR, an elected upper house and elected regional assemblies

  • Scotland: Supports the right of Scotland to hold a third referendum should they choose to
  • LGBT Issues: Introduce gender self-ID and non-binary/polyamorous rights. Review marriage laws to make marriage more inclusive.

July: Layla Moran elected Lib Dem leader

August: Magid Magid and Caroline Lucas elected Green Leaders in their first election where co-leader are elected on separate tickets. Lucas represented an anti-Magid faction, arguing that the party needed to return to a more respectable form of politics. The result caused an upset within the party and an uncomfortable result.

September: Crisis Budget. The government implements a bailout for major banks and economic stimulus. At the same time there are major budget cuts, public sector pay freezes, a reduction in Universal Credit, and VAT is raised to 22.5%

October: Keir Starmer wins a leadership contest, following his resignation after the election to settle issues on the direction of the party.

2025

May: Florence Eshalomi becomes Mayor of London. An agreement was reached to delay the election a year on account of the general election.

June: The "Bathroom Bill" passes into law, this is really an alteration to the Equality Act that enforces segregation by biological sex in prisons, hospitals, rape clinics, and sports, and sets it as a default in public bathrooms and changing rooms.

July: The ice caps melt for the first time, creating a global outpouring of concern, but very little immediate practical changes.

October: Charles III dies aged 76 after what is revealed to have been his second stroke. He was not a popular king, but did defy the low expectations set for him during his short reign

2026

May: An election year of upsets. Adam Price (Plaid Cymru) becomes First Minister for Wales in a coalition with the Liberal Democrats, Naomi Long (Alliance) wins the plurality of seats in the Northern Ireland Assembly, and this is sufficient to form a government alongside Sinn Fein and the DUP. In Scotland, a Conservative-Labour-Lib Dem "Rainbow Coalition" is sufficient to unseat the SNP. Jenny Marra (Labour) is elected First Minister.

July: The coronation of William V is watched by just 1 billion people and is a scaled down ceremony, given that it is the second coronation of the decade and the Palace is concerned that the public will view lavish spending on ceremony as insensitive so soon after the recession.

August: Magid Magid and Tamsin Omond elected Green leaders, with Caroline Lucas stepping down from the party - after months of inactivity. It should be noted that Tamsin is the first non-binary leader in British political history.

September: Great Storm of 2026. A violent extra tropical cyclone hits Britain, coming from the south west and causing extreme property damage and damage to key transport infrastructure. The storm goes through Wales and as far north as Yorkshire.

October: David McDonald is elected leader of the SNP

November: The Equality Act 2026. The aim of the Equality Act is to simplify a complex set of precedents into a more simple rule - essentially stating that discriminating against law abiding citizens for any reason in work, health, medicine or commerce is illegal. The act gives specific exemptions and provisos, including an exemption for trans people without a Gender Recognition Certificate using sex segregated services. The act also creates new opportunities to protect religious and philosophical objections to equality provisos, and limits the scope of positive discrimination.

2027

March: A large fire rips through Westminster, taking parliament out of service and forcing it to find temporary accomodation in the QE2 Centre. Maintenance on the building was delayed due to government cuts and was badly needed. Westminster will remain out of service for the House of Commons until 2039.

May: The London Plan is put forward - unsurprisingly it greatly extends the City. The eastern extent goes as far as Rochester in Kent -and Chelmsford in Essex - to the west, Maidenhead. To the north it stretches as far as Welwyn Garden City and in the south a small outcrop even makes it down to Crawley. The London Assembly will be expanded from 25 seats to 150, to be elected by FPTP. In exchange London will get increased power and a boost in funding to improve commuter contact and housing. The current assembly votes to reject the motion, but it is made clear that while the plan is only a draft at present it is also not up for debate.

July: Prime Minister Boris Johnson marries his long term girlfriend, Sunday Times lifestyle blogger Venice Arnold. The ceremony attracts global attention and reinvigorates a narrative of romance for "The Love Actually Prime Minister" that has been simmering in the press for years.

October: The London Riots of 2027 begin after a series of deaths in police custody come to light, but rapidly grows into generalised looting and burning.

November: Northern Ireland becomes the first part of the United Kingdom to implement gender self-ID. It is notable that it is also the first part of the UK not to have a consultation on the matter. Scotland has had three (2018, 2020, 2024) and England and Wales have had four (2018, 2022, 2024 and 2027) and these have usually corresponded with increases in hate crimes. The deal goes through because the DUP is in a compliant mood - accepting it in exchange for a protection of some same sex spaces exemptions and no rights for non-binary people. While the Alliance and Sinn Fein agree to it.

2028

May: General Election.

Conservative
  • Education: Implement school credits making it easier for middle class families to afford fee paying schools.
  • Welfare: Introduce mandatory, government backed unemployment insurance to introduce and a genuine market into the Job Centre system.
  • Environment: Continue funding the Green Industrial Revolution with £250 billion by 2040 and a promise to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
  • Constitution: Go ahead with the London Plan.
  • Housing: Build a million new affordable homes by 2030, introduce a right to rent scheme to help first time renters afford housing deposits.
  • LGBT Issues: Maintain protection of women's rights and oppose the medicalisation of childhood.
Labour
  • Education: Introduce top up grants to help poorer students undertake STEMM courses, which are increasingly the most expensive.
  • Welfare: Reduce the waiting time for Universal credit to six weeks and provide an appeals process to sanctions, along with personal assistance.
  • Environment: A £600 billion budget for the Green Industrial Revolution by 2050, including funding for climate change mitigation.
  • Constitution: Regional assemblies for the English Devolved Regions and use of the current MMP system to elect the new London Assembly.
  • Housing: Build 5 million affordable homes and flats by 2040 through an extensive programme of building partially funded through the Green Industrial Revolution.
  • LGBT Issues: Introduce gender self-ID for binary trans people and scrap the Gender Dysphoria Centre system.
Lib Dem
  • Education: Increase flexible/part time courses and alternative service providers in Higher Education
  • Welfare: A new Social Care Act and Carer's Charter
  • Environment: Focus research into geoengineering and work with the EU on Actic Ice preservation efforts, also fund flood mitigation and aim for carbon neutrality by 2040.
  • Constitution: Oppose the London Plan but give extra rights to a new London Parliament. Introduce STV electoral system, and elected House of Lords and English regional assemblies. Rejoin the EU.
  • Housing: Build 10 million homes by 2050
  • LGBT Issues: Restore protections for protected characteristics and introduce gender self-ID with rights for non-binary people. Consult on polyamorous marriage.
Green Party
  • Education: Scrap tuition fees and nationalise secondary education, including public schools
  • Welfare: Scrap Universal Credit and introduce Universal Basic Income
  • Environment: Borrow £100 billion a year to fund projects to prevent climate tipping points and aim for carbon neutrality by 2040.
  • Constitution: Introduce PR and an elected Upper chamber along with English regional assemblies. Abolish the monarchy.
  • Housing: Decriminalise rough sleeping and squatting, fund housing co-operatives
  • LGBT Issues: Decriminalise kink and introduce polyamorous marriage, introduce gender self-ID including non-binary people.

Boris Johnson (Conservative): 327
Keir Starmer (Labour): 222

Joanna Cherry (SNP): 18
Layla Moran (Lib Dem): 13

Chris Hazzard (Sinn Fein): 6
Naomi Long (Alliance): 5
Edwin Poots (DUP): 4
Adam Price (Plaid Cymru): 4

Speaker: 1


August: Daisy Cooper elected Lib Dem Leader

October: Dawn Butler elected Labour Leader, defeating Stephen Kinnock

December: Divorce of William V, whose affair with one of Buckingham Palace's staffers has been well documented in the foreign press and has become unavoidable even by the UK press, who attempted for a long time to not report on the story. Public perception of the monarchy reaches a new low, with support for republicanism at 45% according to one YouGov poll

2029

March: Consistently unprofitable social media website twitter.com is closed after an unsuccessful two year effort from Yahoo! to make it viable. The site's remaining 2 million active users continue their migration into an increasingly diversified social media landscape.

May: Jameela Jamil (Liberal Democrat) surprises bookies by winning the London mayoralty from Eshalomi, who is seen as weak on racism and on the London Plan. She demands a People's Vote on the plan, and confusingly to non-Londoners, uses her acceptance speech to address issues of police brutality.

September: Wales becomes the second part of the UK to back gender self-ID, this time without a statutory declaration that incurrs legal fees, and with recognition of non-binary identities.

October: Members of the London Metropolitan police force are found to have abused their power through spying, blackmailing, police brutality, and harrassment. The story has been simmering in social media for over a year but is increasingly finding an outlet in mainstream media.

December: The great floods of 2029 see large areas of the somerset levels and other low lying regions of the country - for thousands of households, Christmas is spent sleeping in school halls in less impacted areas, and many people don't have their homes back until March or even April.

2030

May: Chris Hazzard (Sinn Fein) is elected as the first Republican First Minister in Northern Ireland, much to the consternation of the DUP, however, government relaxation of the Good Friday Agreement means he can form a government with the Alliance. In Wales Hannah Blythyn (Labour) becomes the first female and first openly LGBT First Minister. David McDonald (SNP) is elected Scottish First Minister under an SNP minority government in coalition with the Greens.

June: The government caves to pressure on the London Plan - expansion of the city will go ahead, and the Assembly will be expanded to a full parliament, but an MMP electoral system will be maintained.

August: Joe Levy and Munroe Bergdorf elected Green Leaders however it is notable that in the English and Welsh party the serious contenders are no longer the old moderate party members (represented by Amelia Womack and Benali Hamdache) but rather the more extreme left which argues for anarchism and prison abolition.

September: Home Secretary Liz Truss resigns over the ongoing policing scandal.

October: The Shanty Town Movement begins housing large populations in unused buildings and even constructing new eco-homes on unused space. These movements almost immediately hit into issues from the government.

2031

January: Police in Wiltshire attack a Shanty Town in a major incident involving non-lethal weapons and intense police brutality. The Prime Minister denies that the incident has happened to videos of it happening and by the end of the week Felicity Buchan has resigned as Home Secretary.

February: Arrest of William V on drink driving charges, much to the surprise of people outside of the Palace, who assumed he would not be able to break away from his handlers. The sheer level of forethought and planning that has gone into his self-destructive behaviour astonishes the public. The King goes to rehab.

May: Scotland becomes the third part of the UK to implement gender self-ID. Jameela Jamil commits to introducing it in London if re-elected with new powers in 2033.

October: Home Secretary Ben Bradley resigns, arguing that he cannot bring about government policies on a national constabulary under expected levels of scrutiny and while making cost and efficiency savings.

November: Abdication of William V. There are significant calls, not only from the Lib Dems, Greens and the Nationalists but also from the Labour front benches, that parliament should have some say in the succession. However, this is flatly refused. King George VII who is just 18 and keenly aware of his own inexperience, opts for a regency, taking advice from Prince Harry and from his mother the Princess of Wales Kate Middleton. Kate Middleton agrees to resign the title and return to the title of Duchess, allowing Charlotte to take on the title Princess of Wales. George VII will be the last king of the 21st century, as his rule extended into the 22nd century and will be bookended by regencies in 2031-2034 and 2103-2129.

December: Home Secretary Daniel Hannan resigns as Home Secretary citing the government's unwillingness to move forward on the policing enquiry.

2032

February: The Coronation of George VII is meant to be a small affair but grows out of all proportion amidst accusations that Downing Street is attempting to use the coronation as one last roll of the dice for unity and support of Boris Johnson. The media is filled with combative articles about republicanism and the radicalisation of the left.

March: The position of Elected PCC is abolished, with power returning to the centre under a new National Police Force.

April: The Chair of the 1922 Committee announces that she has enough letters to ask Boris Johnson to resign, which, to the surprise of many, he does. Not even bothering to address the country until he gets to Chequors to record a broadcast on his own terms. Boris Johnson also announces that he will take the Chiltern Hundreds and leave politics.

May: Uxbridge and Ruislip By-Election:

Felix Bungay (Conservative): 23.9%
Abby Tomlinson (Labour): 23.1%
Madeleina Kay (Lib Dem): 21.2%
Richard Branson (Enterprise): 9.3%
Ankit Love (Green): 6.4%
Stephen Morrissey (Movement For Britain): 6.1%
Mandu Reid (Women's Equality Party): 5.1%
Tom Black (Turquoise Blue Party): 1.2%
Lord Buckethead (Buckethead for PM): 1.1%
Olivia Palmer (Biology Party): 1%
Lord Buckethead (Official Raving Monster Loony Party): 0.7%
Dennis Arnold (Independent): 0.4%
Lord Buckethead (Independent): 0.3%
Salom Pax (Transhumanist): 0.2%

June: The Conservative Leadership election comes down, as all Conservative leadership elections constitutionally must, to a head to head decision between two candidates. James Cleverly positions himself more to the centre of the party - arguing for gender self-ID within the year, more money for prevention of climate tipping points, parliamentary oversight into the composition and duration of the regency, and moderate tax increases to reduce the strain on spending. Liz Truss focuses on a more right wing position including a focus on climate mitigation at home, more money for the National Police Force and supplementing it with control over the Fire Service, and relying on efficiency savings to balance the deficit.

The election comes down to the wire, and with just 316 votes in it, James Cleverly becomes the first Black Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

That's very fresh. I'm terrified by the concept of No2Afrexit and wondering now whether Ireland's left or the federal model and Home Rule All Round means that they've eventually settled down.
I think Ireland probably leaves per OTL, in a violent anti-British revolution, and the Ulster Unionists are in the pan-Unionist party, whilst the nationalists are in the Anti-Federalists. No2Afrexit is a very nasty racist populist party organised around protecting the white minority in the African member states from the supposed tyranny of the African majority by forcing Commonwealth Africa to stay in or at least carve off a huge chunk of South Africa and Rhodesia.

Anti-Federalists are mainly an English/Scottish/Welsh/Quebecois joint production opposed to the Federation, whilst No2Africa is a mainly Australia-Afrikaaner ultra-Federalist movement chiefly opposed to letting non-white members of the Commonwealth taking over.
I'm going to assume India isn't a member, otherwise this ship would have sailed a long time ago.

Yeah, the Commonwealth is CANZUK + South Africa (which is gerrymandered to hell to increase white voting power in both the SA parliament and the Commonwealth one) as well as Rhodesia, Zambia, Botswana, and Kenya (all in the same situation) as well as Hong Kong and Singapore. India and Nigeria both left, and whilst British Africans are the plurality, gerrymandering and heavy white support for Hong Kong and Singapore allow the mainly white Unionists to generally win out, but a significant element of the Anti-Federalists want to leave to prevent African rule.
