A new production, coming soon from Lord Roem and Meadow.
I have to say you're not very accurate in your guess, and this isn't the one I mentioned in a PM. I hope to launch that TL after Ted Short is finished (by Christmas, honest).Is this the TL Meadow mentioned in a PM?
I have a guess as to the POD of this TL. Harold Wilson stays on as Prime Minister and the problems that Britain faces in the 1976-79 period mixed with the failing mental abilities of the Prime Minister leads to a coup by military officers to place Mountbatten in charge, probably with the latter being unwilling. Though I could just be horribly wrong.
Worth a try.I have to say you're not very accurate in your guess, and this isn't the one I mentioned in a PM. I hope to launch that TL after Ted Short is finished (by Christmas, honest).
This is rather more of a caper than any TL I've previously worked on. Can't wait to see what everyone thinks.
Nice work, and you've got my interest, but as a physicist, I couldn't quite keep from pointing out that, unless Harold Wilson is a mathematical object, it's rather unlikely that Five could be particularly differential towards himJames Harold Wilson smiled humourlessly to himself as his Press Secretary left the room. He surveyed his Kingdom for the last time, taking care to note the damp creeping up around the skirting board and the mousetrap left over in the corner. It had been a decent run of good luck all told, but the telegram he had received that morning, coupled with a hurried conversation with the former curator of the Courtauld Institute, had been enough to make the decision a fairly easy one. He would miss Mary and the children frightfully, but there was always a possibility of them joining him, if they wanted to. There was also the issue of informing the Palace. In some respects, calling Sir John to inform him of his resignation seemed like the sporting thing to do, but there was also the question of subtlety and he very much doubted that Five would be a differential towards him as they had been in the past.
