  1. Effect of Irish Home Rule on England?

    Suppose the UK manages to successfully implement Irish HR in 1914, say by avoiding entry to WW1 and then dealing with the ensuing unrest from the UVF, Anglo-Irish army officers, Unionists etc. How does this effect the constitutional settlement and question of powers for England when it all...

    Union-Entente Alliance in a CSA Victory Scenario?

    The usual assumption made in a CSA victory scenario is that the Confederates win due to European (i.e. British/French) interference in the Civil War, followed by an Entente-Confederate alliance, parallel to one between the Union and the German Empire. I suppose my question is, then, in two...
