Thanks very much!Just finished reading up on this TL - it's really good! I've enjoyed learning about various Labour figures of the 50s, for example I had never heard of Alfred Robens until I read this TL. Looking forward to seeing more in the fullness of time
This TL certainly illustrates that if Labour had been able to last a full 4-5 year term from 1950, with the economic recovery there wouldn't be much to stop them winning again and again. I wonder if there is a Tory equivalent in this TL to 'Must Labour Lose?'.
Overall is the economy in more or less the same shape as OTL, or perhaps in a better condition?
Noting that you've planned out this TL and intend to go into the 2010s, will you be creating fictional characters to replace those OTL figures who were born after the POD? Not that I mind either way, I just find it interesting how different writers approach this kind of thing.
There was a generation of up-and-coming Labour people who never had a chance of high office because of Labour's long period in the political wilderness in the 50s and 60s, Robens, Marquand and Younger all would have been in a Labour cabinet, instead they got fed up and left politics.
I'm revising some of it at the moment, and have plans of how tory politics would develop in opposition.
With a POD only 70 years ago ill be sticking with OTL people. I will be coming back to this TL at some point this week taking things into the 1960s
