The 2020 Labour Party (Hell) Leadership Election

Ah, Here we are again. After former leader Robert Mellish (Fmr. Gov, Realm of the Castle of Bones) was slain by torn apart with the spores of a fungal demon, the Hell Labour Party has been without a leader.
In their place, four main contestants have emerged in this competitive race to the top.

George Brown (Reasoning for Damnation: Relentless Sexual Harassment, Exploitation of Vice (Alcohol)) The frontrunner for the election has emerged to be 1960’s deputy leader George Brown, who continues to yell over the screams of the damned his attachment to greater rights for lesser demons. The unfortunate thing is that he’s finally broken his alcohol addiction, on account that the only drink we have down here is Blood mixed with Antifreeze, which may not even extend to his palate.
Tony Benn (Reason for Damnation: Exploitation of Vice (Nicotine))
Despite multiple protests and appeals to The Lord up in the Other Place, Benn’s damnation continues, as do his leadership contests, which have been going non-stop every time the leader steps in a patch of Blood Sand or something. He supports a wide range of policies to make Hell a better place, such as draining the flesh lake for a regular lake, and perhaps making a deal with The Dark Lord Satan for worker-controlled Torture Factories.
N’Gcjaovlyk, Ender of Days, Producer of Miseries, Slayer of the Holy (Native)
The only native candidate in the leadership election, Jay, as he’s been nicknamed, is pretty reasonable for a hellspawn, supporting cutting down the torture schedule and a transition from the Damned to the Damning. Most people don’t trust him because of his role in speaking dark thoughts to that lady who tried to shoot Gerald Ford, but once you get past that he’s a pretty stand-up guy.
Oswald Mosley (Reason for Damnation: take a fuckin guess mate)
This guy. This fucking guy. Having jumped between every Party in the infinite abyss, he’s somehow ended up here again. Using his “experience” as an “advisor” to Satan as a selling point (from what I heard he mostly got him coffee), he talks about himself as the “Nationalist” candidate, and how we should all work hard for our Dark Lord yada yada. Nobody knows why he still tries.
Anyway, that’s all for this week. Vote for Jay. Hail Satan, etc.

My continued adventures into the dark maw of the Blair campaign has allowed me to discover... such horrors.
The concept here, which I believe @Turquoise Blue already posted a Welsh version for, is Blair flies very high, and then THE PROJECT derails quickly.

LONDON MAYORALTY
2000-2005 - Mo Mowlam (Labour)
2005-2008 - Trevor Phillips
(Labour)
2008-2011 - Ken Livingstone (London Independent Socialists)
2011-2013 - Ken Livingstone (Respect)
2012-Now - Ken Livingstone (Respect-Green Alliance)

I do know about things that aren't London and Ken Livingstone, but they just keep dragging me back.

Feel like I should post this. It makes no real logical sense (Gaitskell still dying, for example), but it's fun enough and provides a basis for a submod I'm working on for the HOI4 mod Red World.


Attlee (1945-1951) (LAB)
Churchill (1951-1955) (CON)
Eden (1955-1956) (CON)
Butler (1956-1959) (CON)

Gaitskell (1959-1963) (LAB)
Brown 1963-1968) (LAB)
Callaghan (1968-1974) (LAB)

Joseph (1974-1977) (CON)
Prior (1977-1979) (CON)

Callaghan (1979-83) (LAB)
DAVID OWEN (1983-1995) (LAB)
Smith (1995-1997) (LAB)

Clarke (1997-2006) (CON-LIB, CON)
Kennedy (2006-Game Start (2010)) (LAB)

TL;DR the concept me and my friend had was that in tribute to the Britain that's currently in Red World, David Owen would be the decade-defining cultural landmark of a PM who would make Labour the British party of government. I like it at least, I tried to go for the mod's vibe rather than strict (or loose, honestly) historical accuracy.

It was a fun experiment for my first decade-spanning pm list. Hard to track every variable here.

I would follow David Owen with Gordon Brown or Jack Straw myself but all in all looks fun. Would there be some form of Left Wing Populist split during the Owen years similar to Alliance in New Zealand or something else?

It's mostly a setup for the starting situation of the mod and it's various twists and turns. Brown is busy, but Straw is significantly more interesting than Smithy, fair.

There isn't, no. Might as well explain the basic setup of the mod. It isn't that serious in concept, the mod always ran with the "good stories, limited plausibility" concept that most hoi4 mods employ, except this was the first to mix in a layer of wackiness. I'm really trying to get the tone right.

Might do a cabinet, actually, that'd be fun.

Oh Smith is interesting but less ego driven than someone like Owen or Straw. Smith would be a fun scenario itself.

Sounds like fun.

I think I'll list some people who are prominent instead of a specific cabinet, because otherwise I'll find myself three weeks later diving through Wikipedia slamming my head against the wall looking for the Minister of State for London.

Prime Minister - Charles Kennedy
Chancellor of the Exchequer - Ed Balls
(ED BALLS DAY JOKES WILL NEVER DIE IN MY HOUSE)
Home Secretary - Harriet Harman
Foreign Secretary - Alan Johnson
(I'm sure if I looked into him further, he might be in any way interesting. Not yet, but I'm sure it's out there.)
Sec. State for Health - Norman Lamb (MORE SDP PEOPLE, I FEED ON THEIR BLOOD)
Sec. State for Education - David Blunkett (He's soft left. Sort of. But probably not "sort of" in the way you think.)

Leader of the Conservative Party - Oliver Letwin (I bought a book on the tories, read everything that's relevant to the period i research, and all I got was this sense of general uneasiness and self-loathing. So the tories are initially Centrist in-game. Because I hate the Tories almost as much as I hate myself.)
Shadow Home Secretary - Stephen Dorrell
Shadow Sec. State for
Slow Creeping Dread Defence - Nigel Farage (Semi-ASB Althists are fun because you can do things like this. Also in RW lore the EU became Communist so I have free reign. Don't question it.)

Leader of the Liberal Party - Simon Hughes
(In case you can't tell by this point, I'm not playing very fast and loose with the details. Peter Tatchell is doing something, I'm sure.)

First Minister for Scotland - Gordon Brown (The friend I worked on this with was (and more than likely still is) a massive Gordon stan. So blame him. He leaves two years in and gets replaced by Douglas Alexander.)

Leader of the GLC - Valerie Wise (listen if my friend gets a flavour mention of brown being first minister of scotland i get my fucking livingstone cabinet bit ok)

More Ken, you ask?

Wait, you didn't?

Too bad

thanks to @Time Enough for telling me how to do this properly
might change it later, switch around brown and blair and possibly one day if i feel like it have the maths actually make sense rather than my last minute stopgap solution of just reducing down the values.

Please shout at me about Unions because i feel like i may have misrepresented them heavily
