Exactly how I felt it was gonna play out. Multiple competeing factions after a major defeat means anyone who has a sincere desire to take the reins won't, simply to let a rival try and flounder at it.
Said it before, I'll say it again, you cannot simply pander to one wing of the party and then rapidly course correct without their being consequences. Add in any true leaders can see a very unhappy electoral future and stay clear of any leadership arguments....Essentially that national leadership election was them shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic
I just got busy tbh with the election campaign, and the wikiboxes always seemed to get half the likes/comments that chapters did so I thought they wouldn't be missed. I've got more time now so happy to wikiboxes on request if readers would like any part of the world explored/election results for their home province.Just wondering why aren't you making wikiboxes like you used to at the start of the timeline? Not pressuring you to make any but I think it would be very interesting to see the results of some provincial elections or wikiboxes for people like William Hague.
I think some good ones would be William Hague as he's no longer PM (ITTL) and the Essex election mentioned in Chapter 99 where National went into a coalition with the CentristsI just got busy tbh with the election campaign, and the wikiboxes always seemed to get half the likes/comments that chapters did so I thought they wouldn't be missed.

I think you mean Britain's thorniest problem here.“Although this is the third general election since 2016, its character shows how the country has changed. The past two were held in the shadow of austerity and corruption involving the Social Democrats, who faced extinction. Now National is fading amid internal splits. Mr Tugendhat, a politician of no fixed ideology, has hastened that process by feinting left in office, before lurching to the right. Unity and National now have to fight on two fronts. Scottish separatism is Spain’s thorniest problem. But it is the Centrists, rather than the People's Party, which seems to many like the immediate threat to the system. All this suggests that Mr Sugar's bet on forming a centre-right government is a risky one.” - UK Struggling to Stay in Centre Ground, The Economist (2019)
