    How Can You Get A Longer Lasting Electoral Successful Communist Party Of Great Britain?

    Certainly. Perhaps the best bet is obviously popular front taking off (which you know a lot more about) or the consequences of an invaded and eventually liberated UK. But that's so many other big butterflies to worry about that it kind of detracts from the original question.

    How Can You Get A Longer Lasting Electoral Successful Communist Party Of Great Britain?

    Echoing this. It really is a case of getting the CP to affiliate, as Lenin suggested. Could be not totally politically toxic if achieved in the interwar years and is basically forgotten about by 45 and you just have a few Labour-Communist MPs or something whcih carries on to this day. How the...

    Must say lads there really are some brutal critiques going on in a thread which is designed for content which is just a bit of fun. You wouldn't talk to someone like this in person.

    WI: Blair loses the popular vote but is within ten seats of a majority in 2005?

    Echoing @Alex Richards but going slightly further - there was a lot of quiet hope within the PLP that 2005 would give them enough of a bloody nose either to get Blair out and return to "real" Labour roots - a lost majority and Lib Dems on 80-odd seats would defo do that. I could imagine a...

    Foot Resigns and other 80s Labour PODs

    Reducing the entire complexity of the 1980s, not least the ideological fluidity of the period in Britain’s public political and intellectual life, to just “Tories Win” is a bit simplistic not least for an alternate history forum and also goes against considerable scholarship. Ross McKibbin is...
