    George H.W. Bush stays in Connecticut

    Could he be the continuity Rockefeller nominee after Nelson has his heart attack? I'm not totally au fait on internal Republican politics so this is just spitballing

    Prequel Problems: Rogue One

    One minor thing but I believe the film implies (or outright states, been a while) that Andor was actually a child soldier for the Separatists during the Clone War before switching his allegiance to the Rebellion, which I thought raised some interesting questions on the formation of the Alliance...

    AHC/WI: Explicitly pro-IRA government in Ireland during the Troubles

    Direct intervention is very unlikely but it's not inconceivable that the Irish Government supplies arms to the IRA on the quiet, perhaps if the Garda don't pick up on Haughey, Blaney and Captain Kelly's plan, or at least don't inform Liam Cosgrave https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arms_Crisis

    WI: Mussolini successfully escapes to Switzerland

    Putting Mussolini in the dock would certainly be interesting, being in better physical and mental health than Hitler he'd probably be willing and able to attempt to turn the trial into a political theatre to defend Fascism and cement his legacy.

    A more significant bombing of Dublin in WWII and it's aftereffects

    Áras an Uachtaráin was damaged during the North Strand raid, if it takes a direct hit and President Hyde is present at the time and is killed that could change things, although I can see the Germans making a prompt apology to try and diffuse tensions. For big changes, such as joining the...

    A more significant bombing of Dublin in WWII and it's aftereffects

    Yeah, I severely doubt they will drop their neutrality unless it becomes obvious that they are being directly and systematically targeted, or Hitler just decided to declare war on them; though that seems very remote. A potential interesting butterfly might be that Irish volunteers are treated...

    A more significant bombing of Dublin in WWII and it's aftereffects

    Since we have had a run of WWII posts recently thought I'd pose this question. While Ireland was "officially" a neutral nation,Dublin (and other parts of Ireland) would suffer some bombing from Luftwaffe bombers gone astray https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombing_of_Dublin_in_World_War_II...

    Stupid deaths that never happened

    On that note, Farage and his plane crash. Even more so if he blows himself up by lighting that cigarette too close to the leaking fuel.
