    A Blunted Sickle - Thread II

    Shorter occupation, less opportunity for the Nazi's to do their thing and the Death Penalty only being reintroduced after the PoD all make me think Quisling is probably going to do a substantial amount of porridge, but dodge a bullet here.

    A Blunted Sickle - Thread II

    Stormont, at least, they'd have no trouble with, or at least no more trouble than is inevitable with Stormont. The Good Friday Agreement stuff, not so much.

    WI: Donald Rumsfeld ran for President in 1996

    Given he'd have been an Illinois governor, and given the record they have, it would probably have made him more likely to be imprisoned than a viable candidate.

    A Blunted Sickle - Thread II

    I think it's the implementation of Keynes plans that has been most conspicuously lacking - it's tended to the economics of Viv Nicholson, rather than the counter-cyclical activity Keynes envisaged. I'm not sure how you can remedy that, though.

    WI Queen Elizabeth Dies before/during Financial Crisis

    I'm fairly sure Victorian coinage was legal up until decimalisation, so I can't see coins being changed. Notes, I imagine would remain valid until they get the next series of notes out, but most would probably fall out by wear and tear before then.

    Operation Sea Lion (1974 Sandhurst Wargame)

    Whatever happens, we have got The Panzer IV, and they have not Or so I can only imagine the so-called logic is.

    AHC: PM Hitchens

    I never said he didn't - I said he wants the economics that will enable his preferred society. Much easier to control society in a more controlled economy.

    AHC: PM Hitchens

    Peter Hitchens is basically what you'd get if the most conservative Republicans realised that liberal economics (the sort of thing Thatcher brought in) made going back to their idealised '50's society an impossibility and decided that that society was more important to them than the economics.
