And thanks to Gen Moyo for his absolutely fantastic announcement on ZBC that the Bloodless Correction (TM) was neither a coup nor overthrowing Mugabe. I have never spent so much money at a mine bar before or since, but listening to you was worth it

We Don't Know How Lucky We Are

List of Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom
1929-1933: Arthur Fell (Protectionist Crusade-Conservative coalition) [1]
1933-1940: William Trautmann (Socialist Labour Party) [2]
1940-1944: Angus Macnab (National Socialist League) [3]
1944-1944: Count Geoffrey Potocki de Montalk (National Socialist League) [4]
1944-1956: John Platts-Mills (Labour-Communist coalition) [5]
1956-1957: Rupert Haggen (Labour-Christian Democrat coalition) [6]
1957-1966: Garfield Todd (Christian Democrat) [7]
1966-1967: Anthony Fell (Christian Democrat) [8]
1967-1975: Tom Iremonger (Christian Democrat) [9]
1975-1979: Trevor Skeet (Christian Democrat) [10]
1979-1990: Denis Thatcher (Christian Democrat) [11]
1990-1991: Des Wilson (Alliance) [12]
1991-2001: Leo McCarthy (Alliance) [13]
2001-2013: Denise Kingsmill (Alliance) [14]
2013-0000: Paul Beresford (Christian Democrat) [15]

[1] - Fell set Britain alight with his tubthumping campaign in the 1929 election, proposing to fend off the crises that assailed Britain by nursing her industries through difficult times. His neophyte party won only a few dozen seats, but became Prime Minister with the reluctant external support of the Labour Party, who were not prepared to see a Tory as PM. One of several populist, near-autarchic leaders who came to power in that time, Fell's main contribution to Britain was ironically the building of the Channel Tunnel. Completed in 1932 despite the deaths of hundreds of diggers in a cave-in, the Tunnel has been a boon to Anglo-European travel - for better or worse.

[2] - The reaction to the Fell Government was swift and merciless. Even Labour were punished for supporting him, their voters switching over in droves to a party promoted by splitters from the Wobblies. Trautmann's party, like Fell's, received a minority vote, but the support he had on the streets of London (sparked by rumours that Fell had tried to buy votes) permitted him to seize control of the apparatus of the state and suspend Parliament. King Edward VIII wept when the choir at his coronation launched into 'Solidarity Forever' instead of 'Zadok the Priest'.

[3] - Hitler's main target after the fall of France was the Socialist state on his northern frontier. As the Wehrmacht marched through the Channel Tunnel, London fell into uproar and nobody noticed that the elderly Trautmann had died - some say of terror. A brief flurry of panic, and then the Reich swept away the SLP, who had been fighting over who had the right to succeed as PM and who precisely was to blame for the (arguably premature) abolition of the armed forces. Their radical reforms were meaningless, reversed by the new pro-Nazi regime. The stench of death still hangs heavy over Lampeter.

[4] - Some say Count Potocki was over-promoted by the occupying forces in order to give the impression of tolerance and diversity. Certainly the Nazis tolerated his poetry, the first volume of which had been reported to the police by the staff of the Methodist Recorder for its obscenity. Potocki's main contribution was his propaganda against the Bolsheviks (claiming, for instance, that they had been guilty of some sort of massacre at Katyn - his taste for fiction never deserted him, it seems), although many theorise that he would have influenced Britain towards a more clerical-fascist tendency if the Irish-American landings had gone otherwise.

[5] - Although the Americans were distinctly unhappy about this, the Communist Resistance was strong in numbers and, most importantly, on hand in London to take power from the unravelling Nazi regime. As a gesture towards bipartisanship, they allowed the Democratic Resistance stalwart John Platts-Mills to become Prime Minister over their own Tom Wintringham. The Communists regretted this timidity later on, as Stalin grew increasingly frantic at the gradual pace of their salami tactics, but it was a healthy combination at first, with both sides of the coalition happy to work together to rig the first democratic elections in 1946. In fairness, the CIA were also doing their level best to rig the vote. Be that as it may, Platts-Mills and his coterie became increasingly close to Moscow over time. The resultant loss of Empire and trans-Atlantic trade was more than made up for by close trading links with the French Socialist Republic beyond the Tunnel.

[6] - A more moderate Labour man than Platts-Mills, Haggen rose to the top upon his resignation in the face of the widespread rioting across the country. The public rose against Communist domination in solidarity with the Hungarians, Italians and Danes, but unlike those nations, the UK was still a bourgeois democracy with little USSR military hardware on-shore. The opposition Christian Democrats were therefore able to offer to join Labour in a Grand Coalition to wrest power from the Communists. Labour, never entirely confident of Platts-Mills' loyalties (despite his heroism in the War), jumped at the chance to return to the normalcy of the 1920s, even if it did mean a thorough drubbing at the genuinely democratic elections held the next year.

[7] - A safe pair of hands for an exhausted nation, Todd's liberal, Christian conservatism set a clear new line for a party mainly consisting of former Nazis and collaborators. Hindsight, however, has blamed him for not doing enough to rebuild the British economy and diversify it away from the low-quality manufacturing sector so favoured by the Platts-Mills Government. On the plus side, his Minister Anton Anderson extended the railways beyond even their pre-War state, becoming known as 'Mr Railway' in the process.

[8] - Son of Arthur Fell. He was a staunch defender of old Conservative values, in stark contrast with Todd, and challenged him for the leadership in a messy coup. Surviving in power only long enough to pardon those imprisoned after the Buxton Trials, he is not widely missed.

[9] - Iremonger had been seen as an ultra-Toddite full of promise - until he actually became Prime Minister. Now in power and passed his best, though, he merely occupied office rather than led. His downfall came with the Newry Canal Crisis, when his dependence on opiates led to the loss of the last vestige of the British Empire. Since then, there has been no British military presence 'West of Holyhead'.

[10] - He continued the now-entrenched dominance of the Christian Democrats, despite repeated policy failures, simply by scare-mongering about the Communist opposition. Skeet changed the electoral system from PR to AV to shore up the new normal, perceptively noticing that frequent strikes were not a vote-winner.

[11] - Described as a "juniper-sozzled, right-wing, golf-obsessed halfwit", Thatcher was a traditional Christian Democrat in all respects - except one. His wife Margaret (who he patronisingly referred to as "The Boss") pushed him increasingly to adopt the monetarist policies coming out of Washington at the time. This was the first radical economic reform in a generation or more, and the deregulation of the economy could never have ended well were it not for the increasingly close relations with the newly post-Communist states in Western Europe. The Union of Non-Soviet Anti-Socialist Republics (to which its name had been amended after the fall of the Roman Wall in 1978) expanded to include hitherto American-aligned Britain in 1984, paving the way for increasing European integration and the sweeping away of the last of the Platts-Mills-era industries in the North.

[12] - Wilson led the newly united non-Communist opposition to their first victory in 1990, but rapidly tired of continual in-fighting between Liberals and Social Democrats. He is much-mourned today as a missed opportunity for British history, getting much praise for his building of the City of Metroland to house those made homeless by the 1980s market reforms.

[13] - McCarthy inspired the term 'McCarthyism', meaning the system of Alliance machine politics which suppressed all imagination and radical policymaking in the Party for a generation - both inside the Alliance and in the ailing Communist Party, which found its last electoral strongholds targeted by Chris Rennard's vote-squeezing strategies. Only Bryan Gould's Monetary Reform Party still challenges the two-party duopoly on a parliamentary level.

[14] - The product of the shift towards technocracy in the Alliance. She did nothing of interest, which led to the electorate eventually returning to the seemingly-discredited Christian Democrats.

[15] - Paul Beresford, a patrician Tory from Croydon who famously can't understand Glaswegian accents, united the main factions of the Christian Democrats, being both fairly affable (which appeals to the Toddites in a way that actual liberal policies could never do) and fundamentally opposed to the UNAR, which appeals to the post-fascists in the party. It seems that the latter faction will finally reshape Britain in their image, after decades of rule by moderate Toddites and moderate Alliance folks, as Britain will vote soon in a referendum that could reshape its foreign policy once more. Leading the campaign to Demolish the Channel Tunnel is Aidan Burley, the Staffordshire MP and Government Minister who has been known to attend Nazi-themed functions. It's going to be an interesting one, that's for sure.

@Bolt451: I hope this counts. There's some cheating (the most pushing the envelope was Marion Gordon "Pat" Robertson/Gordon J. Humphrey) but I hope you like it all the same. And yes, Jill is ultimately the feminine form of Julian. I didn't know that before this list
