That's amazing, really. Have you thought about what would ethnic relations be like?
Mixed, Lim Chin Siong and the Socialist Front didn’t have the best relationship with the Federation of Malaya (as in a really bad relationship) and as a result this had a knock on effect with folks of Malay descent are viewed with suspicion and racism against them can be quite prevalent (even if Singapore and Malaya have patched things up). There weren’t any major race riots though there have been incidents.

Outside of that similar to OTL Singapore though, as the Socialist Front tried to showcase that they could build an ‘equal society’ though racism still persists despite it.

So @Tom Colton did I do an okay job? I hope it works as an alternate Singapore
Ah, I finally came back to this.

Jospehine Teo as Prime Minister will keep me up at night in sheer terror.

Nicely done work, I do wonder how high up the ladder of capitalism they'd get in this world.

Well I had temper the good times that was Lim Chin Siong and Barisan Sosialis winning numerous election somehow, Teo works in that fact.

Thank you, means a lot coming from you I have to say. In terms of Capitalism, Singapore ain't the Asian Capitalist Powerhouse it's perceived as in our world. The Barisan Sosialis years were more concerned with building a function Social Democracy (they manage to impalement some Democratic Socialist ideas though the Trade Unions baulk slightly at some of the more radical proposals like Industrial Democracy) though some deals were made in terms of manufacturing as the nation even with a heavy trade union activity the nation is still seen as cheaper than the Western nations.

Attempts in the 1990s under the revived PAP to liberalise the economy go better than expected (helped by the Japan's economy still crashing and burning in the early 90s) though an Asian Stock Market Crisis in the late 90s knocks some of the more radical proposals on the head. The economy undergoes a more radical liberalisation under Tan Cheng Bock with an emphasis towards the expanding digital economy.

In ATL 2020, Singapore is seen as a model of Social Democracy outside of Europe, with an economy that is heavily geared towards the rising digital sectors that allows it to expand it's reach though it ain't the richest country in Asia (though it's doing better than Japan and has at points nipped at the heels of China) and it isn't as rich as the version we all know and love.

Theresa May but Singaporean is still horrifying and I will never forgive you.

How's Malaysia doing? One of the planned Weber Town follow-ups would have had Mega Malaysia (Malaya, Singapore, Brunei) being a regional powerhouse due to its total dominance of the junction between the Indian Ocean and South China Sea and natural resources and crude oil (uh, excuse me whilst I clean off my keyboard), with LKY and the current Lee being quixotic crusaders for Singaporean independence.

Tom, how can I win you back...would a timeline involving David Saul Marshall being the one to allow Singapore to win Self Government? Or Lee Kuan Yew still being a Moderate Fabian Socialist instead of what he eventually became? Or a Left Wing PAP?

That's a horrifyingly amazing idea there, who are these Weber Town folks (also in this scenario LKY would probably still be a Social Democrat as well, which is something)?

In terms of Malaysia (or it would probably be the Federation of Malaya since they would not be letting a Barisan Sosialis Singapore to join) there doing alright, the bad relationship that they had with Singapore has dissipated massively since Mahathir Mohamad and Devan Nair managed to organise a Economic Alliance in 1986 (in return Mohamad let up on cracking down on the DAP which was Nair's baby until he came back to lead the more powerful NTUC under Barisan Sosialis) and since then the countries have had a cordial relationship with them creating a small economic zone between the Indian Ocean and South China Sea. Having a successful Social Democratic Singapore has allowed the DAP to have more power though it's never managed to have a government in any real sense.

so i started a collaborative list on the other place of 'commanders-in-chief' under john brown's provisional constitution

i decided i didnt want to do a write up of the whole thing so i settled with this

Presidents of the United States

1857-1861: James Buchanan (Democratic)
1856 (with John C. Breckinridge) def. John C. Fremont (Republican), Millard Fillmore (Know Nothing)
1861-1864: Joseph Lane ('Southern' Democratic)
1860 (vacant) def. Abraham Lincoln (Republican), Stephen A. Douglas ('Northern' Democratic), John Bell (Constitutional Union)
1864-1865: John C. Breckinridge (Democratic)
1865-1867: George B. McClellan (Peace Ticket)
1864 (with Salmon P. Chase) def. Joseph Lane ('War' Democratic), John C. Breckinridge ('National' Democratic)
1866 Constitutional Convention; adaption of the Provisional Constitution as Amendments

1867-1869: Benjamin Butler (Nonpartisan), as Commander-in-Chief
1869-1872: Salmon P. Chase (Republican)
1868 (Coalition with Adjustment Democrats and Radicals) def. William Mahone (Adjustment Democratic), Benjamin Wade (Radical), Zebulon B. Vance (National Democratic)

It was perhaps inevitable that Butler would be the first Warlord to be nominated to a second term, given the circumstances of America emerging from it's bloody civil war, and the adoption of the Second Constitution. However, 1870 has been and gone and Butler remains as Warlord of America. The shape of the new American democracy has emerged, and it looks far more similar to European constitutional monarchy than what the Old Founders, and possibly John Brown himself, ever intended. The President is elected by the unicameral Congress, not the people, the title is that of a head of government. The head of state is the Commander-in-Chief, but to refer to that title as merely head of state does not do the office justice. There is a reason they are referred to as Warlord. The Commander-in-Chief exercises wide discretionary powers, making them more powerful than any President in the history before the war.

Chief Executives of Hong Kong:
1996-2005: Anson Chan (Independent-Democracy Camp)

1996 def: Peter Woo (Independent-Pro Beijing), Simon Li (Independent-Pro Beijing)
2002 def: Donald Tsung (Independent-Pro Beijing)

2005-2012: Emily Lau (Frontier/Democratic Party-Democracy Camp)
2005 def: Chim Pui-chung (Independent-Pro Beijing)
2012-2016: Regina Ip (New People's Party-Pro Beijing)
2012 def: Emily Lau (Democratic Party-Democracy Camp), James Tien (Liberal Party-Pro Beijing), Leung Kwok-hung (League of Social Democrats-Democracy Camp)
2016-: Anthony Wong (Independent-Democracy Camp)
2016 def: Regina Ip (NPP-Pro Beijing), James Tien (Liberal Party-Pro Beijing), Erica Yuen (People Power/LSD-Democracy Camp)

A short list depicting a world where Britain decided to increase democratic reforms in Hong Kong, China is harder hit by the 1997 Financial Crisis so it can't put pressure on Hong Kong as much until later and Anson Chan winning in 1996 allows her to implement some more democratic reforms to elect the chief executive. After a series of Democracy marches against Regina Ip who tries to turn back various reforms and laws for Beijing's favour, a new Chief Executive election occurs and actor and Pro-Democracy activist Anthony Wong wins the impromptu election.

Basically just an idea I had of an inverted 1924, two Progressive main party candidates and a Conservative Splinter, presumably it wouldn't suddenly lurch the parties leftward, but I might continue this idea with inverting other elections.

This is actually an amazing idea and I'm kind of surprised no one has thought of it yet.

1924 and Liam Tobin coups W.T.Cosgrave as a reaction to Cosgrave's attempts to decrease the size of the army and creates a 'National Salvation' Government of various Nationalists, Republicans and Pro-Catholics which bans all Left Wing parties and imposes authoritarian measures across the nascent Irish Free State. The 1924 election is a sham, though popular support for Eoin O'Duffy and his National Party leads to O'Duffy being essentially disappeared by Tobin. The next 12 years essentially are Military imposed rule, with elections consisting of Government approved Candidates or Parties, the nation being reformed to something similar to a Corporatist model and Tobin even becomes friendly with the Mussolini regime whilst planning for the eventual time he can take Northern Ireland from the British. 1936 Tobin goes back to Military matters and imposes his puppet Joseph McGarth, Director of Intelligence (and head of Tobin's Secret Police) to run the nation as Prime Minister. However in the background, a conspiracy formed by Minster for the Interior Ernest Blythe, Gearóid Ó Cuinneagáin of the Ailtirí na hAiséirghe and Minister for Communication James Walsh who viewed McGarth as not pushing forward Irish values properly (evidence being McGarth not joining Italy in supplying troops to the Spanish Civil War and generally being more of a Nationalist Conservative than a Fascist for there liking). McGarth's suspicious death from a car crash in 1940 allows Ernest Blythe to take over and purge all those deemed insufficient in ideological loyalty to the Irish State and an increase in arrests of Protestants, Jews and other 'undesirables' occurs.

In late 1940, the Irish Republic joins the Axis and declares war on Britain. Despite German support, the war effort doesn't go to plan and by late 1943 British and American forces alongside the IRA manage to push the combined Irish/German force out of Northern Ireland and within a year Ernest Blythe is up against a wall and the Irish Republic has collapsed. A combined British,American and IRA committee is awkwardly created to oversee the tasks of rebuilding the country and reviving Democracy in Ireland. In 1946, with the war now over and Ireland beginning to return back to normalcy an election is called with James Dillon, a fierce critic of the Tobin/McGarth/Blythe regime becoming Prime Minister with his Renua party (a coalition of Conservatives, Liberals and Conservative Irish Labour Party members) as he enters into a coalition with the revived Sinn Féin (representing the Conservative wing of the IRA) being a coalition partner. Dillon's Paternalistic Conservative rule is about rebuilding more than anything and he handily wins the 1950 election on a 'Steady as she goes' manifesto (though the Daonlathaigh Shóisialta now having secured a footing becomes the main force of opposition to Renua with it's brand of Irish Social Democracy).

However it isn't long into his new leadership that he's assassinated by Gearóid Ó Cuinneagáin's Far Right Terrorist organisation Bráithreachas and into the breach steps James Everett, Minister for Labour. Everett's run as leader is more of the same (alongside a crackdown on the Irish Right) but delivered without the same enthusiasm and fire that Dillon had and it's unsurprising when Seán MacBride became Prime Minister in 1953. Stronger trade unions, Land Reform and implementation of a welfare state similar to the one implemented by the Attlee Government in Britain though much of MacBride's two governments is more concerned with supporting farmers and the creation of the Irish Environmental Trust and the Irish Farmer Grant scheme alongside Irish Welfare State reforms due to his coalition partner being the Populist Agrarian Left Wing party Clann na Talmhan. MacBride leaves his Prime Ministership a popular man (which would allow him to successfully become President the following year thanks to Margaret Mary Pearse stepping down) and is replaced by the more radical Brendan Corish who enters into a coalition with the Democratic Socialist/'De Leonist' Irish Workers Party and focuses on reforming the New Welfare State into a more radical Democratic Socialist angle (giving Trade Unions more power and implementing elements of Industrial Democracy) similar to his reforms of the National Health Corporation into the National Health Service (inspired by Britain's National Health Service) which allows him to reduce the attraction of the Pro-Soviet Saor Éire party.

Winning the 1963 election Brendan Corish promises to implement more change, though he's dealing with a revived Renua under Liam Cosgrave who many guess may win the next election if he plays it smart.
