Don't know about you all but I'm getting real tired of seeing stickers on lampposts saying the pandemic doesn't exist

Metastasis

2019-2026: Boris Johnson (Conservative)
2019 (Majority): Jeremy Corbyn (Labour), Nicola Sturgeon (SNP), Jo Swinson [defeated] (Liberal Democrats)
2023 (Majority): Keir Starmer (Labour), Nicola Sturgeon (SNP), Ed Davey (Liberal Democrats)

2026-2029: Rishi Sunak (Conservative)
2028 (Minority): Andy Burnham (Labour), Daisy Cooper (Liberal Democrats), Michael Matheson (SNP)
2029-2035: Andy Burnham (Labour)
2029 (Majority): Rishi Sunak (Conservative), Humza Yousaf (SNP), Daisy Cooper (Liberal Democrats)
2033 (Majority): Liz Truss (Conservative), Humza Yousaf (SNP), Daisy Cooper (Liberal Democrats), Nichola Mallon (Fianna Fáil)

2035-2038: Vaughan Gething (Labour majority)
2038-2043: Peter Fortune (Conservative)
2038 (Majority): Vaughan Gething (Labour), Matt Craven (Liberal Democrats), James Melville (White Rose)
2043 (Coalition with White Rose): Eli Aldridge (Labour), Alex Philipps (White Rose), Matt Craven [defeated] (Liberal Democrats)

2043-20__: Dehenna Davison (Conservative, in coalition with White Rose)

It started with the stickers. An inauspicious start, popping up on lampposts and noticeboards outside churchyards. "Staying human is more important than living in fear." "If their science worked, they wouldn’t need their propaganda." "The biggest scam in the history of the world." You could rip them down and they’d pop right back up. It simmered beneath the surface, ugly and waiting. A flash in the pan, perhaps. COVID came and COVID went, the Telegraph got its Freedom Day, and families hugged beside their Christmas trees. The Kappa variant, fresh out of Mali, caused a lot of undue panic in the new year. The stickers went back up and Facebook caught fire, just in case.

They delighted in the Labour leadership crisis, and roared when Starmer got his legal pad handed to him in 2023. The Scots voted to stay by a hair. And then Boris… left? Boris, King of the World, writer of poppy books and pockets stuffed with after dinner speaking cheques. The man who had taken them out of the EU and valiantly fought against the experts in SAGE with their lies and numbers. Don’t believe everything you read. You really think they only spend 0.7% of the budget on foreign aid? That’s not what Dan Wootton said on GB News. And what’s this about cancelling Last Night of the Proms? Go woke, go broke – no, it’s nothing to do with black mould at the Royal Albert Hall. It’s because they were going to play I Vow To Thee My Country. Don’t you dare kneel. I was at the march, yeah, but I wasn’t there when they killed that policeman.

Sunak vs. Patel wasn’t what they promised. Tax rises weren’t what they promised. How much does a pint cost these days anyway? Probably won’t even vote this time. There’s something about Sunak I don’t like.

Kneecap 'em and then up and at 'em, Andy. Can’t believe he let Khan be Foreign Secretary after the mess he left in London. World gone mad – did you hear they’re making all cars electric next year? Of course Labour squandered it all giving the Scots everything they wanted. The smug grin on Yousaf’s face at the signing of the Arthur’s Seat Agreement. Can’t stand that man – I’m getting tickets up to London for the March for Our Values, yeah. Up go the stickers. Traitors! Selling out real British people. I’m not condoning that guy who punched David Lammy but I’m sure he had it coming. Typical Labour, standing for nothing and nobody. Not for people like us. "Domestic terrorism" my arse. Heard on the radio that we got nothing for Eurovision again. Bloody typical. Between you and me, I don’t believe the mainstream media line about Bournemouth. Bit convenient the way the roof of the conference centre caved in, isn't it? It’s just a woke excuse to crack down on people again, the War Against Fun. An "insurgency"? You're having a laugh. I was going to buy one for my niece for Christmas, fly it around the park. I wasn’t going to stick dynamite on it for Christ’s sake. World gone mad.

The WHO claims there was something in the pack ice and we’re all locked down again. Can’t believe we were so stupid to let the Tories do it to us again. They’re all as bad as each other. I don’t know anyone who’s sweating, let us live our lives. The biggest scam in the history of the world. I saw that clip of Fortune at the G9 – what’s a deep fake? No, it’s real. I saw it. We’ve got to do something about it, everyone on Earful agrees. Hell, didn’t have a lot of time for Gary Barlow before he said that stuff on BPV about the kids. Staying human is more important than living in fear. We’ve got to do something about it. I want my country back. I want my country back. I want my country back.

Orpington should have been a wake-up call for the Tories about splitting the vote. They never listen. Fortune’s head for a coalition agreement, and we got our true believer in No. 10 in time for VE Day. We are the White Rose. We are your neighbours and your colleagues. Staying British is more important than living in fear.

1989-: Neil Kinnock (Labour Majority)

It’s a Redux Folks, In which I address and expand on the original with more creativity and better colours etc.

So Attlee still falls down some stairs but lives, but is put out of commission. The 1949 Leadership election is a victory for Bevan, mainly due to A.V.Alexander not being able to muster support and Attlee still detesting Morrison. So Bevan manages to become leader, but first he must fight an election. The 1950 election occurs before Cripps presents the budget, so things go better which is compounded by Churchill having a stroke which leads to Lord Woolton having to run things as the Tories do worse.

Bevan manages to win another substantial majority for Labour and uses the opportunity to pursue his own projects. Meanwhile the Tories enter into a protracted power struggle, made worse by Eden accidentally suffering a drug overdose in 1954 leading to Macmillan getting the crown. Meanwhile Britain is reformed on Democratic Socialist grounds, but the idea that this would lead to a Socialist paradise is unfounded. The 50s are a time of relative prosperity compared to the War years but just because the Worker has a say in how his factory is run, doesn’t dissuade them from wanting luxury goods which becomes a problem in the late 50s.

Still Labour wins the 55’ election, with Macmillan’s attempts to appeal to the public falling flat as people are relatively content for the most part and the Tory’s are still in the midst of a bloodletting. Buoyant on another’s majority, Bevan proceeds to push more of his agenda, Homosexuality decriminalisation, Industrial Democracy and establish the Yugoslavian-British Enterprise Treaty are some of his success.

But Bevan doesn’t ban the bomb and to some of his supporters, that’s a step too far and the Independent Socialists are briefly a grouping within Parliament, lead by Stan Newens. Dealing with a renewed Tories under Thorneycroft, an overheating economy and increased demand for consumer goods leads to Bevan becoming ill and soon after dying.

As a nation mourns, the telegenic John Freeman takes over, promising to bring a ‘Modern Bevanism’ for the masses. But a charismatic leader can do very little to deal with the problem of being in power for 15 years. Labour crashes against the rejuvenated Tories lead by Thorneycroft.

Thorneycroft’s promises of a ‘New Economy for a New Britain’ would in the end, fail. A combination of austerity and reducing worker control whilst stabilising the economy wouldn’t endear him to the masses and the Trade Unions who dominated much of the economy would constantly push Thorneycroft. His election called on ‘Who Runs Britain?’ see’s the Tories entering coalition with the Liberals.

As polls dip and Thorneycroft is seen as a problem more than a solution, he’s replaced by Anthony Nutting. A moderate, One Nation Tory, he works incredibly well with the Liberals but the economy overheats yet again and dry monetary policy does little to help.

Barbara Castle comes in 1969 and has to deal with a country slowly leaning into chaos. Her solution is to reform how the Trade Unions operate and whilst endearing her to the public, pisses them off. Meanwhile a gaggle of Labour MPs advocate that Britain's woes would be solved by Europe. Castle and Eurosceptic cabinet refuse and lead to a ‘Democratic Labour’ split in 1972. The Economy sees a slight dip in 73’ followed by a Trade Union spat which causes Castle to lose in 74’.

Her replacement wasn’t the first choice, but Heath’s death in a boating accident meant that the Conservative Keynesian’s chose Peter Tapsell as there candidate during the 1971 leadership election believing he would lose in 74’. His victory would see the semi-destruction of the Bevanite dream, already kicked into motion by Castle. The creation of a Germanic Social Market Britain would be the order of the day, though with trade being pursued with the Commonwealth due to Tapsell’s Euroscepticism. This combined with a series of economic projects and tough on crime/war on drugs would make Tapsell decently popular as Post War Tory leaders went.

The Left would wander aimlessly in 70s and 80s, the Labour Party stuck in Bevanite aspic as they were outmanoeuvred on the Left by the New Democrats who would advocate for more radical Libertarian Socialist ideas. In the beginning of the 80s the economy would see stagflation occur, Tapsell’s dream of Keynesian economic proving to be his downfall.

Dick Marsh had come into parliament wearing a CND badge and had consider joining Newens before being dissuaded by Michael Foot. But the Marsh of 82’ was very much a different beast. ‘Supply Side Socialism’ and ‘Singapore On Thames’ wasn’t what had been expected from a nominally Socialist Party but Marsh saw that the people wanted a Consumer Democracy to emerge. And he ensured that, through a collection of Market Socialist ideas and interconnected computer system that should manage Britain’s economy.

It’s now 1989, Marsh has resigned due to age and his successor claims to be a follower of the Bevanite ideals, but Kinnock is just as firmly rooted his Marshism too. As the Conservative’s continue to flail and Kinnock’s popularity soars nothing can put a dampener on Britain’s mood...well apart from the fact that he wants to join the European Commonwealth.

THE REPUBLIC SHALL NOT BE VANQUISHED
I had a lot of notes written about the north, the rise of Canada as a world power, what cities like Resolution, Ilaquit now look like. For the south I just went "some independence, some still with ties to their home countries, almost all on the coast.

Western Antarctica is basically the Chilean, Argentinian and British settlements on the Antarctic Peninsula all declaring independence under a fairly corpocratic, libertarian system that slowly turns into a moderate democracy.
