IN THE COMPANY OF MY PEERS
From List of U.K. Prime Ministers 1945 - 20201971 UK TL.png

The 1971 United Kingdom general election was held on Thursday 17 June 1971. It resulted in an expected victory for the Conservative Party under leader Quintin Hogg, which defeated the governing Labour Party under Tony Benn. The Liberal Party, under its new leader Philip Rea, lost half its seats. This was the first election since 1935 in which the leaders of both major parties came from the House of Commons, although both Hogg and Benn had renounced their Peerage.

Benn was the third Labour Prime Minister since their win in 1966, after the forced retirement of Lord Pakenham and the death of Lord Attlee. Most opinion polls prior to the election indicated a comfortable Conservative victory, and put Conservatives up to 12.4% ahead of Labour. Benn however ran a strong campaign and was widely praised for minimising Labour's losses and he decided to stay on in the Commons despite calls for him to be elevated back to the Lords.

OOC: This is the laziest type of Wikibox edit, in which the 1970 box was edited to put in new leaders and change a few dates.

Despite the near-impenetrable gridlock characteristic of the Sixth Party System the Presidency of Pierre Salinger had been a comparatively productive one. He successfully negotiated an end to nuclear testing, expanded protections for conscientious objectors, and although his efforts at assembling a multipartisan civil rights caucus floundered, his impassioned calls for civil rights have become classics of American oratory. But failures abounded: America remained devoid of Social Security, jobs, and hope. Salinger did not lose because he failed to solve the problems, he lost because he acknowledged them. Walker's Patriot Party was a patchwork of state-level conservative parties whose dysfunctionality was papered over by fevered jingoism. It was a resounding defeat for progressive forces, but unknown to them and to all, the consequences of Carto's constitutional crisis would give them a break.

Bertram pulling a passenger train at the grand opening of the Mine Fairgrounds in the Summer of 1980. SKR #1 Skarloey and SKR #2 Rheneas can also be seen in the photo.

Bertram is an narrow-gauge tank-tender engine who is currently in service on the Skarloey Railway. He formerly worked on the Festiniog Railway and later worked on both the Mid Sodor Railway and the Sodor Gold Company. After the Gold Mine shut down in 1946 and shortly afterwards the Mid Sodor did as well, Bertram was left abandoned at the former mine for over 30 years until being rediscovered in 1979. He was then restored and put back into service.

Bertram is often nicknamed the "Old Warrior" by the railway staff because of his bravery. [1]

Bio

Bertram was built at Boston Lodge by George England in Minffordd, Wales in 1880. As a result, he was the eighth and final Ffestiniog Railway 0-4-0TT (England Class) locomotive to be built. Bertram would work on the Ffestiniog Railway for a 20 year period before being sold to the Island of Sodor to work at the Sodor Gold Mine on the Mid Sodor Railway. There, he was regauged from the 1 foot 11 1⁄2 inches (597 mm) rail gauge to the 2 feet 3 inches (686 mm) rail gauge.[2]

Bertram would work at both the mine and on the railway until 1 August 1946 when the Sodor Gold Mine shut down after the gold supply ran out. Five months later, the Mid Sodor Railway would close down as well to to the flooding of its last operating mine as well as a decline in mineral traffic. [3] He would be left abandoned at the former gold mine and would sit there for about 33 years.

Part of a Semi-Realistic project, In which the eastern front of WW2 ended in a stalemate and a 3-way Cold War occurs. This infobox itself is pretty much an ASB, so it gonna change in the future.

With the Eastern Front ending, the Germans look towards the British isles. Despite peacing out in 1941, the Nazis knew the Brits were going to rejoin the war sooner or later. Britain was still recovering its loss from the failed durkin evacuation and Air battle. The German invasion of the Island caught the British off guard. Despite this heavy fighting occurred and the German wasn't able to push up North. However, the Allies for some reason we're forced to retreat up north, possibly due to the large reinforcements from Germany. With the fall of London, and more reinforcement arriving, The remaining Allied troops were forced to evacuate the island to Canada. Scotland quickly declared independence, fearing the German rath. Eventually, the remaining parts of the Island fell to the Germans.

In a Nazi victory scenario, even in the most realistic case, an outright conquest of England isn't really plausible.

Not to mention if the United Kingdom does fall, the government is just going to flee somewhere else and form a government in exile. The British Empire is not gonna end just because Britain falls. The countries and colonies within the Empire (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, ect) would not fall to the Nazis if the UK does.

Edit: Oh, it look like the description got edited while I was writing the comment.

Yeah, your right as well. I don't know why I wrote down "End of the British Empire" This whole infobox was just a test to see my skills.

I think the South African government could become a Nazi client state, but that's about it.
 

Footnotes:
1. Benjamin Franklin is murdered by a pro-Jackson mob, with Vice President Samuel Adams agreeing with Jackson not to claim the title of president for himself in exchange for being appointed as secretary of war in the second Jackson administration.
2. Although Arthur Wellesley's presidency is more of a military occupation until the signing of the treaty of Havana in 1824, many mainstream American historians count him as a legitimate president, though he is taught of in school as an "occupation/ military dictator that gave up power back to the U.S government."
3. As both Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln are impeached and removed from office by radical-freedom members of Congress, Speaker of the House Galusha A. Grow governs as next in the line of succession until the next presidential election.
4. President Raymond P. Shafer is impeached and removed from office by a hostile Freedom Congress for allegations of misuse of campaign funds and the soliciting of bribes by foreign governments.
5. Jimmy Carter is impeached and removed from office for the Iraq-MPLA affair

1940 US election infobox inspired by Philip Roth's "The Plot Against America"
1940Presidential-election-PAA.PNG
The 39th quadrennial United States Presidential election occurred on November 5th 1940, with incumbent Democratic President Franklin Delano Roosevelt running for an unprecedented third term in office. Roosevelt had initially been hesitant to run for a third term, adhering to the custom set by President George Washington over 100 years prior, although following the outbreak of the Second World War (which the US wasn't yet a part of) and the increasingly negative effect the war was having in Europe convinced him to run again.

Despite breaking Washington's age old custom, Roosevelt was nominated by the Democratic Party on the first ballot at the Democratic National Convention in July 1940, although incumbent Vice President John Nance Garner (who had himself sought the Democratic nomination against Roosevelt) was replaced on the ticket by Agriculture Secretary Henry Wallace.

The Republican Party, who hadn't held the White House since the landslide loss President Herbert Hoover faced in 1932, nominated famous aviator and outspoken isolationist Charles Lindbergh for President, with Burton Wheeler, an independent Democratic Senator from Montana as his running mate. Both Lindbergh and Wheeler were outspoken in their opposition to the idea of the United States entering the Second World War, and campaigned on a populist and isolationist platform against Roosevelt, Lindbergh's slogan "It's either a vote for Lindbergh or a vote for war" becoming a household phrase known across the United States. Despite never publicly stating support for Nazi Germany, some labeled Lindbergh as a Nazi sympathizer due to his anti-semetic views and opposition to entering the war against Hitler's Germany or aiding the United Kingdom in their war against the Nazis. Although he was routinely speculated to be a Nazi sympathizer, his isolationist and anti-war stances were very popular across the country, with many scared of being drafted or having family members/loved ones drafted to fight if America was to enter the war coming out in support of Lindbergh, while Roosevelt's strong and tested leadership appealed to many American's worried about Lindbergh's inexperience.

Lindbergh defeated Roosevelt in an extremely close race, winning 52.0% of the popular vote and 270 electoral votes, just four more than the 266 needed to win the Presidency. Since the 1940 election was the first to occur since the ratification of the 20th Amendment, Lindbergh and Wheeler became the first President and Vice President inaugurated on January 20th, with Lindbergh becoming America's 33rd President, and Wheeler becoming the 33rd Vice President. Lindbergh would serve as President until his disappearance in September 1942, following which Wheeler ascended to become the 34th President of the United States. The Lindbergh administration was defined by anti-semetic violence, which erupted across the US in the months prior to, and after, Lindbergh's disappearance. The widespread hate was fueled by the anti-semetic and at some points pro-Nazi views of some members of Lindbergh's administration, including Interior Secretary Henry Ford, Vice President Wheeler and even President Lindbergh himself, who made several state visits to Nazi Germany where he met with Chancellor Adolf Hitler, much to the chagrin of much of the Western World.

The Red Kennedy

Hayden's victory in the Socialist primaries over the professorial Franklin Roosevelt III was widely expected, but the election itself was entangled in endless speculation. Socialists had reigned since the 1977 Constitutional Convention brought down the Carto regime, and the ferocious gains made by UC in the '93 elections seemed to indicate a current of dissatisfaction. But analysts overlooked key facts: UC broadly accepted the popular Socialist economic program, and their victory was energized into being by the failed proposal to decriminalize abortion.

Silber, the maverick Governor of Massachusetts, was a vicious campaigner, which was a poor contrast with Hayden's affability and glamour. Buddy Roemer, running on the small-government, anti-corruption Integrity platform, was liked by all, but ran in the wrong year: had he run in 2005 instead, he would have had a considerable chance at becoming the next occupant of Washington-Reagan. In the end, there wasn't even a runoff.

Does Reagan get his name attached to the District because he never makes the jump to conservatism in the wake of the New Deal (going on to play a role in the downfall of the Carto Regime)?
