    This is a homage to @Komodo's excellent "AIPverse", which I have tried to construct a British version of.

    Didn't fit with the whole "RedKip" thing I was going for with the Kilroy-Silk direction.

    And it's a bunch of election games. Here's my Archive on it.

    Would have to do it versus Labour. Which I'm not opposed to. A SDP-y Labour vs. BlueKip NUP would be fun.

    With apologies to Thande.

    2015-2016: David Cameron (Conservative)
    2016-2017: Theresa May Conservative) (1)
    Def 2017: Jeremy Corbyn (Labour) Nicola Sturgeon (SNP) Tim Farron (Lib Dem) Arlene Foster (DUP) Gerry Adams (SF) Leanne Wood (PC) Jon Bartley/Caroline Lucas (Green)
    2017-2018: Theresa May (Conservative Minority with DUP S&C)
    2018-2018: Boris Johnson (Conservative Minority with DUP S&C)
    2018-2018: Jeremy Corbyn (Labour) (3)
    Def 2018: Boris Johnson (“Brexit” Conservative) Anna Soubrey (“Customs” Conservative) Nicola Sturgeon (SNP) Vince Cable (Lib Dem) Arlene Foster (DUP) Gerry Adams (SF) Leanne Wood (PC)
    2018-2019: Tom Watson (Labour) (4)
    2019-2019: Rebecca Long-Bailey (Labour) (5)
    2019-2019 : Jon Trickett (Labour) (6)
    2019-2023: Dawn Butler(Labour) (7)
    2023-2023: David Davis (Conservative Minority (8)
    Def: Dawn Butler (Labour) Jo Swinson/Anna Soubrey (Liberal Democrat/Moderate Alliance)
    2023-202_: Priti Patel (Conservative Minority)

    (1) A Vote of no confidence by Labour and Tory back benchers over comments and proposals for a hard Irish border would lead to an election where several Tory MPs stood as pro-Customs Union candidates.
    (2) Despite not outpolling the Tories in the months leading to the November 2018 election. Thanks to a Tory split Jeremy Corbyn secured a majority of 23 but was tragically killed in car accident on his way to Palace. Investigations would discover there was no sabotage of the vehicle and it was simple a mechanical fault.
    (3) Didn’t stand in leadership election.
    (4) Jon Trickett narrowly beat Emily Thornberry in the final round of the Labour leadership. Both Watson and Tricket failed to secure a permanent Brexit Deal by March 1950 but did switch to the “Backstop deal”, ironically originally proposed under the May Government. This was a limited time period where free trade remained and Northern Ireland kept a soft bordere . Despite this the backstop had a strict limit. Jon Trickett (and Health minister Andy McDonald) resigned when confusion over customs lead to the death of a critically ill patient when Britain ran out of a key medication.
    (5) As Deputy Leader Jon Ashworth (dubbed “Jon the Lesser” by political Wags) took over as Prime Minister but like Watson before him, didn’t run for Leader
    (6) Dawn Butler became the first BAME Prime Minister (And first female Labour Prime Minister). She oversaw the integrations of Britain into a Customs partnership with Europe, formalised with the Treaty of Amsterdam. While this did lead to increased economic stability the outcry from the opposition and many newspapers saying this was selling out to Europe and the Express declared her declared her a traitor to the will of the people and the Tories and Labour repeatedly swapped places despite the Tories losing some votes to the Moderate Party (and in Scotland the SNP)
    (7) Thanks to pro-customs union vote being split between Labour and the Lib Dem/Moderate Alliance he managed to form a minority government but died from a heart attack a month into the role

    Pretty much the same as yours, I guess. I would have made a moderate Republican (Brian Sandoval or Jon Huntsman, maybe?) Howard Dean's VP, though.

    The list is based off of Kaiserreich's canon list of US presidents until 1936. Everything after that is headcanon. In Kaiserreich's offical canon Hoover serves two terms but considering the Great Depression started in 1925 in KR, I just don't see Hoover getting elected for more than one term. The only reason I have McAdoo get reelected is due to a massive three way republican split, and Ford only gets elected due to the split persisting. Curtis canonically only serves one term as IOTL he dies in 1936 but he survives in KR, my headcanon is he knows he doesn't have much time left and that he physically can't serve more than one term.

    I don't know why Hoover's VP would be noinated in Hoover's place and elected if Hoover himself is so toxic.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ That's just what kaisrreich gives me, but he is getting removed as the compromise candidate in the next patch and being replaced by everyone's favorite one term progressive president from the Ruins timeline, FLOYD B. OLSON!

    I have this vague idea for a timeline I call Morning Comes Early. Inspired by the recent timelines exploring the survival of JFK, I've thought about a possibility briefly touched on in one of them; Reagan/Kuchel for governor/lieutenant governor in 1962, with Nixon seeking a return to the Senate instead of the governorship that year. Without further ado, I give you the governors of California in that timeline from the POD onward as I've considered them thus far:

    Pat Brown (Democratic) 1959-1963 [1]
    Ronald Reagan (Republican) 1963-1969 [2]

    Thomas Kuchel (Republican) 1969-1979 [3]
    John Garamendi (Democratic) 1979-1987 [4]
    George Deukmejian (Republican) 1987-1995 [5]
    Tom Hayden (People's Party/Peace and Freedom Party) 1995-1999 [6]
    Al Checchi (Democratic) 1999-2007 [7]
    Tom McClintock (Republican) 2007-2015 [8]
    Peter Camejo (People's-Peace and Freedom Party and Green Party) 2015- 20XX [9]


    I may add footnotes later.
