  1. Lab-Lib pact plausibility check

    So I've been playing around with Prime Minister Infinity and had a pretty solid run as the Liberals in 1950 and enjoyed myself so much I'm thinking of both making a continuation scenario and maybe a short timeline based on how a hypothetical Labour minority government with Liberal support would...

    Inferno: The 1980s and Beyond

    This timeline reimagines the 1980s, transforming it from the remembered halcyon days to a far more unstable decade. The point of divergence comes in the 1970s, and quickly snowballs into a dramatically altered universe in the next decade. Familiar characters have different roles, unfamiliar...

    What would Mexico look like with Bernardo Reyes?

    Bernardo Reyes was a Liberal general and politician that served as governor of Nuevo Leon. He was a prominent politician and a major candidate for succeeding Porfirio Díaz, so what would Mexico be like had he been the succesor? Would he be overthrown quickly or would he be a Mexican Atatürk?

    AHC: Liberal South

    With a POD of 1900 have the South be very Liberal, and be solid blue states. Is this possible? Is Florida still a swing state? Where else does the GOP go? What other effects does this have on the rest of the Union?
  5. AHC: More Churchills and Lloyd Georges in Downing Street

    In our timeline, both Winston Churchill and David Lloyd George had children who followed their fathers into Parliament - Lloyd George had two children (Gwilym and Megan) who entered Parliament (with neither remaining in the Liberal Party by the end of their careers, funnily enough), while...

    Threadmarks: Part I: Stanley Baldwin (1923 - 1924) and Ramsay MacDonald (1924)

    Stanley Baldwin Conservative 1923 – 1924 In May 1923, British Prime Minister Andrew Bonar Law found himself having to resign from office, as a result of a diagnosis of terminal cancer which would lead to his death in October. This left King George V with the task of appointing his successor...

    The Popish Wind

    On the Failed Dutch Invasion On the early morning of the 29th of October, 1688, a handful of ships set sail from the Dutch port of Hellevoetsluis, despite the adversarial winds keeping a majority of the flotilla’s would-be fleetmates in port. At the head of this small fleet sailed William of...
  8. WI: Churchill never defects to the Liberals

    Winston Churchill first entered Parliament in 1900, being elected as Member of Parliament for Oldham as a Conservative. However, in 1904, Churchill defected from the Conservatives to the Liberals, due to disagreements with Joseph Chamberlain's proposals for tariffs which were being accepted by...

    WI: No Pierre Trudeau

    Now I've seen a few threads discuss this idea, and I'm curious about it myself. What would Canadian politics look like without Pierre Trudeau? Doesn't matter if he's killed in 1949 by a sniper or just decides not to run. How would 1968 Liberal leadership unfold? Would John Turner's support with...

    Liberal Response to Stagflation?

    In the 1970s and early 1980s, the US economy slowed largely due to what has been called "stagflation", a combination of high unemployment and high inflation. IOTL, Ronald Reagan and Conservatives at large responded to this with Supply-Side economics, and despite the criticisms of "Reaganomics"...
  11. The Liberal Split (The Second One) and the 1992 election

    So, I'm thinking about doing an alternate history based on a weird game of Prime Minister Forever, where I managed to win 1 seat for the continuity Liberal Party (Michael Meadowcroft's seat). The big problem is I know literally nothing about Meadowcroft, nor the effect that Meadowcroft and...

    WI: Western Anarchism rises from Liberalism instead of Socialism.

    The basic idea is that one of the 19th century liberal free-trade supporters or possibly one of the 18th century French Physiocrats decides that no government sounds like a pretty good idea and coins the word "anarchism" before Proudhon. How would anarchism develop from then on? How would it...
  13. What if Dukakis had won?

    What if Michael Dukakis beat George HW Bush in the 1988 US election? How could this be done? Conventional wisdom is that Dukakis could have won and if he had run a better campaign and responded to Bush's attacks he would have emerged the winner. If he pointed out that the furlough program was...
  14. Canadian Politics TL -- Professor Layton and the Confederation Conundrum

    I've had various ideas that I've wanted to incorporate into a Canadian politics TL for a very long time, but I could never put together a solid enough underlying concept to transubstantiate these threads into reality. The goal of this TL should be quite obvious from the title, and my political...

    WI: Stephen Harper resigned before the 2015 election

    Me and a friend were discussing this issue recently. I proposed that had Stephen Harper resigned sometime before the 2015 federal election, as was rumoured, than perhaps the party would have had a better shot at winning re-election. My friend, an avid supporter of the NDP, didn't think so...
  16. Alternate Liberal Leaders of Russia

    In OTL, Boris Yeltin was the non-communist opposition leader who came to power after the collapse of the USSR. However, let's just pretend that he gets assassinated before 1991. Who else could lead a non-communist liberal opposition after him during the 1990s.
  17. A New Deal for America: An Alternate History of the Late 1970s & Beyond

    "It is time for a New Deal for America. It is time for a new approach to foreign policy, it is time to stand up to the Soviet Union and regain America's status in the world. America needs to be great again, we need to stand up and fight for our values. We need to fix our economy, we need to...
