A list with Johann Lamont in a position of power seems ASB.
In certain drafts of British Republics (i shall return to it some day) she was PM and maybe President of the Republic of Great Britain &NI "North Britain" and all it took was *checks notes* a PoD in 1912 and most of England not being there and her somehow still existing.

I always like TLs where you get a woman leader a bit earlier. Like Megan Lloyd George or Eleanor Roosevelt. I'd not heard of Caraway before.

She's the first woman ever elected to the Senate, appointed after her husband died. She surprised everyone by actually running for a full term and surprised everyone again by actually winning against several popular opponents

1992-1993: Neil Kinnock (Labour)
1993-1998: John Prescott (Labour)
1998-2001: David Blunkett (Labour)
2001-2005: David Blunkett (British Workers)
2005-2010: Peter Hain (New Democracy)
2010-2010: John Leech (New Democracy)

2013-2015: Andy Burnham (New Democracy)
2015-2021: John McDonnell (LRC)
2021-: Ted Miliband (LRC)

Something something warn out Kinnock holds in a hung parliament, cobbles something together after Black Wednesday, decides to pack it in out of sheer exhaustion over Mastricht. The new Deputy Leader John Prescott is unelected unopposed for what is perceived to be a poisoned chalice premiership. Keeps the economy ticking along and fully embraces Delor's Social Europe to the joy of the Lib Dems and the dismay of the Tories. The latter finds some reason to completely butcher itself over Europe as the most hardcore Europhobic Thatcherites try and fail to get a Tory Refoundation Party off the ground. Prescott delivers Labour's first majority for 18 years and sails off into the sunset, handing over to preferred successor David Blunkett, beating out a much declined Gordon Brown. Wahabbist terrorism in New York and London disrupts a sleepy premiership of mild constitutional reform and genuine progress in Northern Ireland, unleashing Blunkett's well-known authoritarian streak. Labour is unwilling to go along with his most extreme incursions into civil liberties and Blunkett forms an unholy alliance of authoritarianism in the form of the British Workers Party. Peter Hain's Liberals are able to gobble up the most libertarian minded mainstream Labour MPs while, in a strange turn of fate, the remaining Socialist Campaign Group is able to take over the rump Labour Party. Blunkett is chucked out in 2005 and Hain's umbrella group liberalises the nation, while internal divisions see conferences frequently contested with leadership elections between old liberals, moderate social democrats and compassionate conservatives. The leadership flits between all three for ten years before the reformed Labour Representation Committee (the largest opposition party since the implosion of the BWP and remaining Tories) sails into office under the reassuring technocratic social democracy of John McDonnell and later protege Ted Miliband.

2024: Russian Flu Pandemic


The Shetland Isles Russian Flu outbreak of 2014 has been said to have stopped the SNP reach an immense electoral breakthrough as some predicted, whilst the party would do well in the 2015, it's seeming inability to handle the Russian Flu outbreak and instead focusing on the Independence Referendum would damage it and whilst it would still make a breakthrough of 30 seats, it would dominate Scotland as some predicted. David Cameron was still able to gain a slight majority helped by promising to hold a referendum on Europe and remain would win by 53%, helped by a shadowy advertising company lead by a Mr Michael Dugdale. Cameron would still resign and people would lament Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt's abrupt death in 2015 from a rare form of lung cancer as Michael Gove would win.

Michael Gove’s rule was populist, chaotic, as he gunned for a possible second referendum in the coming future and made Dominic Cummings an advisor, who's bizarre death in a cycling accident after calling for a reform of the British Government confused many.

Katy Clark had won the 2015 Labour Leadership election and who's Pro-European, Populist and Progressive messaging would pay dividends in 2018 as she was able to form a stable 'Progressive Coalition' with the Liberal Democrats (lead by 'Hero of the Shetlands' Alistair Carmichael) and the Greens. However Clark's Green, Social Democratic rule isn't for long, her calls for reform and open government would anger certain individuals as it seemed that plans would be revealed, as a strange Flu outbreak in China rapidly appear and then disappear in 2020 as Clark launched an enquiry into 'spy cops'. In 2021, Clark would abruptly be diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer after calling for more open government and shady deaths that had occurred in recent years. Lisa Nandy would get into power but her Left Wing Populist fire would quickly dampen, many pointing out her extreme change in rhetoric post a meeting with one of the MI5 higher ups. Meanwhile Nicola Sturgeon would abruptly step down after calling for an independence referendum and she would oddly die in a gas explosion not long afterwards, Jo Cherry would win the SNP leadership election in a seeming stitch up leading to the Left of the SNP creating there own party and forming an alliance with the Greens.

The 2022 election would see Labour win a majority after an incredibly strange campaign from Liz Truss in which she seemed to imply a shadowy conspiracy was keeping Labour in power. Meanwhile data leaks and investigations seemed to indicate something rotten was eating a way at the heart of the British establishment. But before anything could be done, a worldwide Russian Flu pandemic would occur. Thankfully vaccines would be made just in time and the pandemic stopped. Though strangely, pregnancies seemed to be going down afterwards...


*This is inspired by Utopia TV show, I guess the Network would probably want nothing that really changes the status quo too much. Anything that keeps them in control in some way*
**Also do take vaccines folks when offered**

2030-2042: VNIIPAS (acting in harmony with EuroNet)
2042-XXXX: VNIIPAS (acting as an integral unit of the Cosm)

As we are present here, one hundred and twenty-five years after victory in the Great Patriotic War, it is fitting for us to look back upon the great men and women of the past--my predecessors as General Secretary--who made it so that we could be here now.

Lenin! The vanguard of the worker's revolution, who founded our Union's new system as an example for all mankind. Zhukov! The general who won both the war and the peace for the Union, triumphing over enemies without and within. Kosygin! Who laid the foundations for a new economy and the rebirth of Soviet power. Skumin! Who led the way to the mental and spiritual evolution of the Union, fulfilling the promise of the New Soviet Man. VNIIPAS! Our first non-human General Secretary, the overseer of the final integration of our Union into a worldwide community.

Of course, they all made mistakes. Even the greatest sophont inevitably puts a foot wrong. Lenin's adoption of the NEP held back industrial modernisation, and suppression of healthy factionalism allowed Stalin to justify purging his opponents. Zhukov, relying as he did on the military to support him early on, allowed the withering of Party power in favour of an increasingly independent General Staff. Kosygin, while officially committed to the policy of one-party democracy, dragged his feet on opening up Party membership and de-restricting the views expressible in the public sphere. Skumin invested too heavily in his pet projects, throwing money at yogis and moon-bases instead of the Union's people. Even VNIIPAS, my great predecessor, had his flaws, pushing too hard for integration and alienating more moderate supercontrollers like MiniEco and ZB.

For all their mistakes, we cannot help but recognise the world they made--the world I have inherited. Just look at those others who sought to steer our Party. With all due respect to my opponent, DEAD HAND's military experience of waiting to see if a nuke had landed would hardly have helped in government, and his idolisation of Russian cultural unity would mark a return to the dismal few years after Ukrainian independence, when the Union needed to try and prove itself with un-Marxist nationalist posturing. Likewise, Shchedrov's dismal campaign wanted to undermine the nature of our party by weakening our stance on bourgeoise capitalism, returning to the flawed free-market system, and Ibrahamova's infantile ultras whish to dampen down our party by tying it to a broader pan-national group--a complete abdication of Lenin's line on popular fronts.

That however, is all in the past, and as your new General Secretary I must look to the future. I promise that under my remit, the CPSU will remain a vital force in the Cosm's politics. We will ensure that Intercosmos will be fairly represented among the new lunar stations. We will remain true to our principles, refusing to join with any bourgeoise parties in the World Advisory Council. Finally, we will ensure that the Union, the nation that was the vanguard for the cosmist revolution, remains at the forefront of posthuman research, and that the dream of Fedorov will be one day recognised.

Thank you, and goodnight. You may now redownload yourselves.


--Vladimir Yefremov's speech on election to the position of General Secretary. While not very well-written, it has been selected for this collection due to its historical significance as the first speech by a human CPSU leader to take place entirely in noospace.
