The darkest timeline.

Fantastic, if grim work overall though
It's not that bad, I think? Yes, Scotland did go through a phase and declared war on England for a bit, but the overton window moves so far to the left the Tories are the ones pushing to abolish parliament and replace it with some sort of Bookchinian wet dream of interconnected city councils.
It's kinda like how @Catalunya made that one list where by 2060 the Republicans are all post-left Anti-statists

2019-2022: Boris Johnson (Conservative)
2019 (Majority) def. Jeremy Corbyn (Labour), Nicola Sturgeon (Scottish National), Jo Swinson (Liberal Democrat), Arlene Foster (Democratic Unionist), Mary Lou MacDonald (Sinn Fein)
2022-2022: James Cleverly (Conservative)
2022 (Majority) def. Keir Starmer (Labour), Nicola Sturgeon (Scottish National), Ed Davey (Liberal Democrat), Mary Lou MacDonald (Sinn Fein), Jeffrey Donaldson (Democratic Unionist)
2022-2022: Michael Gove (Conservative majority*)
*Effective minority accounting for Covid Research Group and Flood Research Group rebellions; government supported by informal arrangements with opposition parties
2022-????: Greta Thunberg, Baroness Thunberg of Dunwich and Uppland (Independent Green leading National Government of Ecological Emergency with Conservatives, Labour, and Liberal Democrats*)
*Informal arrangements with SNP continued, contingent upon 2023 independence referendum

Boris' usefulness to the cause of Conservatism became a liability in the cooling months of 2021, as scandal after scandal struck his government and it rarely appeared that the Prime Minister hadn't inserted a digit into the proverbial pie. He did his best to throw caltrops before his successors and after the 1922 Committee finally lost faith in him, the touted competitors from Sunak to Truss stumbled and fell. It was Cleverly who was handed the poisoned chalice, by a very narrow margin.

With only shaky support, Cleverly sought to shore up his position with a snap election in the Spring of 2022. The result was a mixed bag. Labour failed to eat back in the Red Wall to some degree, but alongside the Lib Dems they bounced back hard in formerly safe Tory heartlands. The Conservative majority remained comfortable but there was a sense that the landslide of 2019 had been squandered.

This became clear only a few weeks later, as floods struck England and the awkward Cleverly was horribly outmatched by the scale of the crisis. He lurched between paralysis and radical, uncomfortably statist solutions. The current within Toryism which had rankled at lockdowns and mask mandates was suddenly joined by those who protested evacuations and the promise of higher taxes to pay for ecological adaptation.

Cleverly handed over to an old hand, defeating the accumulated Research Groups divided candidates, and traded fractious party politics for bipartisanism. And in short order, a new government formed, one headed by a figure committed to an Anti-Industrial Revolution to match the ambition of those who started the First Industrial Revolution in Britain...

I was gonna comment on how the fuck you can protest evacuations, but then I remembered what has been going on for the last 18+ months.

* Party labels are applied retrospectively, as the situation was chaotic at the time. The inclusive name Unionist was eventually settled on due to 'conservative' having negative connotations in French politics, which is also why the Radical-Liberals' French name avoids translating 'liberal' directly. Only the largest political groupings are shown here, there are many more.

Wasn't sure whether to use 'à la tête du' or 'dirigeante' to equate to 'leading X coalition' in English, I'm sure there is an actual French term for it (more so than in English given French political history, probably!) Not sure how to translate 'supported by' either, especially as I've not decided myself yet whether this is confidence and supply or something more akin to a full coalition government.

Interesting stuff, I do suspect that Harry Pollitt would probably be replaced fairly quickly Post 45, due to the CPGB wanting to have someone a bit more hard hitting when dealing with Jacques Duclos.

"Coalition de centre-droit", "coalition du centre", "de l'Union nationale" (you did get that right in the heading).
Thanks, will edit.

Nine year terms for MPs feels…odd.
Accidentally missed out an election, will edit.

My thinking here is that there's a split in the Communists of both countries over whether they accept the Union or not, with Zhdanov telling them not to, but the electoral system is set up to punish parties that don't operate as a single unit across both countries. So the 'Communists' we see here are the result of a split.
