Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

Could a communist really get one million votes in the second red scare environment? Also why was electoral college abolished?
The 1948 election resulted in a contingent election that resulted in a president and vice president from different political parties, I think they'd be over the EC by then. Not really but the national environment is slightly different and with Wallace becoming anti soviet by 1952 any pro USSR USA friendship voters would go to the actual communists.

Something like No Korean war altogether? I wish to maybe do a comprehensive TL on that subject some day, I think it would've really led to a more peaceful world in general and Cold war being more of a competition in things like space, science etc. than IOTL being like 'let's fuck up a bunch of 3d world countries beyond repair by turning them into battlegrounds'

Also much more left leaning USA early on you have there?

Like the previous page I don’t think had a pop culture infobox which is the element of this thread that I like the most especially with what @TheAlternateHistoryGuy did with the ren and stimpy one where it was pretty much a set up to his thread and I think this page should at least have a pop culture infobox to make up for it
I don't understand what you're going on about or what that has to do with "seats".
This is a wikipedia infoboxes thread. Has nothing to do with pop-culture. You can certainly make a pop-culture infobox (I have), but the vast majority are strictly political.

What I am saying is that it would be good to have a pop culture infobox for this here page and I have a suggestion instead of x men origins wolverine x men 4 is a adaptation of the x tinction agenda as the political focus and days of future present as the emotional plot

My brother in Christ,

There are 335 pages in this thread currently. Not all are going to have a pop culture post (and I do not see why they should), it is not other people's jobs to make hyperspecific infoboxes and I don't see how your "too many seats" comment has to do with anything.

If you want a pop culture wikibox then make one yourself. It is not other people’s job to make specific wikiboxes just because one person wants them.

So please, quit being obnoxious about there not being a hyper specific wiki box on every page and if you want to see it here then make your own.

Amen to that, @ZeroFrame ! I know kirbopher15 means well, but good golly his behavior and demands are getting quite annoying.

The 1987 Channel Tunnel Fire took place on 18 August 1987, when a cargo train caught fire in the northbound tunnel. Fire was seen on the train as it entered the tunnel and, in line with the policy at the time, an attempt was made to drive to Britain where the fire would be dealt with. However, the locomotive and train were rapidly enveloped in thick smoke, and the locomotive along with the entire tunnel lost power. This caused a troop train entering the southbound tunnel at Dover to become stranded as the entire tunnel became enveloped with smoke; the majority of casualties were on this train. It was the worst railway disaster in British history and the second-worst disaster to occur in Britain during the Great Eastern War.

The Channel Tunnel between Dover and Calais had opened in 1973 but since the outbreak of the Great Eastern War in 1985, civilian traffic in the tunnel was heavily restricted under the Civil Contingencies Act. It was used mainly for cargo and troop movements between Britain and the continent. The traffic evening of 18 August 1987, a movement of soldiers from Northern England towards the Balkan and Turkish fronts and a goods train of heavy machinery and petrochemicals from Straßburg to London was typical.

Pre-war, fires had occurred in heavy goods vehicles transported through the tunnel, and concerns were raised about inadequate design and safety protocols; planned improvements had been delayed and scrapped due to wartime shortages, and pre-existing safety protocols had been relaxed to maximise the amount of traffic able to use the Channel Tunnel. While the exact source and cause of the ignition is not know, the northbound train's cargo of foodstuffs and petrochemicals could be easily ignited. The rescue effort was also hampered due to wartime shortages and a lack of coordination between British and French authorities, a concern that had also been repeatedly raised since before the tunnel's opening.

The disaster was not well-documented at the time due to wartime reporting restrictions, and public campaigns by survivors and bereaved families were controversially suppressed under the Civil Contingencies Act. Public controversy grew post-war over allegations of coverups and negligence by the wartime government. The Illustrated London News's 1989 report into the disaster drew attention to this cover-up and directly led to the collapse of the 1985-89 National Government; the Radicals won the 1989 general election in large part upon a promise to properly investigate the disaster.

The Booth Inquiry held in 1993 concluded that the disaster was the direct result of a wartime culture of negligence and lack of attention to detail due to wartime pressures at British Railways and the Ministry of Transport, stating that the northbound cargo train should never have been allowed to enter the tunnel. The inquiry strongly criticised the wartime government for censoring the disaster and failing to allow a proper investigation

Despite the intensity of the fire, the superstructure of the tunnel survived in relatively good condition. It remained closed for the remainder of the war and re-opened after an intense rebuild in 1993.

Yeah, @kirbopher15 I'm sure there are plenty of incredibly friendly and helpful creators who could help with pop culture wikiboxes, but it's up to creators to decide the content they put out :)

The 1934 Argentine General Election was held on April 1, 1934, and would lead to the 4th consecutive UCR election to the presidency, with Marcelo Alvear returning to the Pink House for a second stint after his 1922-1928 term. He succeeded his correligionist Enrique Martinez, Yrigoyen's soft-spoken Vice President who completed the old Radical leader's term after his death in June 1930. Martinez's time in office had been challenging, taking over in the midst of the Great Depression and a coupist conspiracy planning to depose the ailing Yrigoyen; Interior Minister Elpidio Gonzalez had gotten wind of the conspiracy shortly before the president's death, and with Martinez's support and cooperation from War Minister Dellepiane, the putschist ringleaders were rounded up and deported to the Ushuahia Penal colony by September of 1930.

This broke the fever among opponents of the Radical party, doubly so with the death of the man who concentrated much of that opposition personally; but Yrigoyen's passing also forced the party and its opposition to fully reckon with their motives. The Anti-Personalist UCR unraveled at the national level in his absence, with the splinter parties that had split with the national organization because of personal grievances against Yrigoyen starting their progression toward reintegration while the ones that - like the man who lost against Yrigoyen in 1928, Leopoldo Melo - opposed his policies, and found Alvear just as unacceptable as a replacement despite his traditional leadership of the Anti-Personalist faction nationally.

The 1932 legislative election would help crystalize some of these shifts: Melo and other like-minded Anti-Personalists coordinated their efforts with the Confederation of the Rights, eating away at the UCR's lower house majority and entrenching a conservative majority in the Senate. But the expanded Senate majority helped Melo another way: it gave him a good reason to decline another losing run in 1934, with all signs pointing to the clearest front-runner Alvear running again. The task of running against Alvear then fell to Julio Argentino Pascual Roca, likewise a scion of a powerful political dynasty, but one with far more recent claims to fame than Alvear's: Julio Pascual Roca's father had been president twice (from 1880 to 1886, and again from 1898 to 1904).

Roca Jr. would prove stiffer competition than expected, especially with his ticket augmented by leading Anti-Personalist Radical Roberto Maria Ortiz, but Alvear remained broadly popular from his time in government, and the result would be an emphatic 14 point win and a 2 to 1 majority in the Electoral College for the porteño leader. But there were worrying signs for the future, with Alvear's triumph owing more to nostalgia for the booming economy of his first term than anything else. The Great Depression dragged on under Martinez, and the voters turned to Alvear in hopes that lightning might strike twice; the party ran 4 points behind its presidential candidate in the legislative elections, which while more than enough to secure a resounding win, saw the party lose a handful of seats. Most impressively, Roca Jr.'s party, which he launched nationally as the National Democratic Party, managed to coalesce the opposition vote in almost every province, failing to win seats only in Santa Fe (where De la Torre's Progressive Democratic Party came close to beating the Radicals for first) and Capital Federal (where the Independent Socialist Party just barely failed to repeat their win from 1932).

Before Alvear had even been sworn in for his second term, the jockeying for 1940 would begin: with Yrigoyen dead, the field was wide open in the party. Roca meanwhile took heart in his strong performance, and thought a closer election against a less known rival in six years was winnable. But the outbreak of World War Two in 1939 would throw a wrench into all their plans...
