Very enjoyable from start to finish a chilling and plausible what if and I am so glad I wasn't living there as I'm not entirely sure how my life would have gone with an Irish mother and RN officer father.
There is another tl I can't remember what tho
Thank you for these kind suggestions - I've got a couple ideas in mind which I'll talk more about after the epilogues
They'll general try and tie up lose ends in the world, like Mountbatten's exhumation, the peace process in Scotland etc. There will be some about the political situation but a breakdown of the various parties is unlikely - the bookies odds for President was a very Commonwealth thing, it wouldn't make as much sense in AVBT Britain.A really nice way to end this tl. Will share my full thoughts about the tl after the epilogue chapters have been posted but this has been an amazing tl.
Also what will the epilogue chapters contain? Will they be about the different parties like in the Commonwealth tl?
I think this should be British.The 2018 referendum was held in the face of a court ruling that it was illegal. The separatists declared victory despite polls showing a divided public, and declared independence. The Harvie administration would later be dissolved by the Spanish government in the crackdown.
a region of 5.4 million that is home to an independent culture.
I think it was decided early on not to mess with the population too much. Yes the borderline civil war and worse economy would increase emigration rates and lower the population but at the same time the country being poorer, having worse education and less access to contraception means birthrates would be higher. There's just so many variables that coming up with an exact figure would be like throwing darts at a board.Can I suggest dropping this number?
Scotland had *a lot* of emigration between 1970 and 2001 in OTL. I can't see the population being the same in TTL with greater political repression, actual paramilitaries, worse economic opportunities and a dictatorship to contend with.
It's a small detail but would show how the drastic political changes you've have affected the country.
