    Anyone else see that the budget failed again? Here comes more chaos in New England! Also, I saw that Facebook and Twitter are being broken up. Why is that?

    "Liberal MP John Bercow mulls leadership challenge against Mundell"

    I guess he thinks the party needs more ORDER.

    Can we get some idea of what TV is like in the UK, please?

    There are calls for this to happen IOTL. I can only assume that this movement is even stronger ITTL.

    Will the USSR get a new wikibox? Awesome work as usual, Kanan

    Well, it looks like the USSR might be in for happier times.

    Interesting to hear about the Suez Integration Act. What's that all about?

    And might the situation in Ireland be about to change? If there's sufficient public will for a referendum, might that stop the violence?

    If the Suez is considering being part of Egypt (that's what I assume the integration act is), then unless egypt is much better off ITTL than IOTL it is a horrible idea.

    It's interesting how things have gotten much more chaotic following the election

    Going from a battered Opposition to a landslide majority (even a technical one, given how many rebels there are re: the budget) is not all that out there in a parliamentary system. Parties split a lot because people get swept into office and then find that they don't have the voice or influence they thought they would when they ran.

    Don't know if this was answered or not, but what's Joe Biden doing?

    How did this happen? I am quite interested.

    Are the US not as capitalist/neoliberal ITTL, or how have they and Canada agreed to break up Facebook (and? or?) Twitter?

    Did he accidentally sign his own death warrant?

    A surviving USSR would be pretty nice though.

    What are the causes of the failure of Albania's transitional government after an four months of attempt to restore democracy? And how long would the international community will react since the Albania had already suffered the struggles in transitioning back to the civilian authority?

    Just caught up with this and I can't believe I didn't find such an interesting take on my home region sooner. @Kanan you've done a fantastic job with this so far and I can't wait to see what happens next. It would seem that Conservative fortunes from their election didn't last them very long with one major scandal and legislative defeat less than a year into office, and now they're staring down the barrel of potentially another election.

    Also, poor Jeb! can't seem to get a break in any ATL.

    @Kanan Are there any populist parties in New England? (I suppose the Social Democrats are left populist to an extent) Is populism something that could get a foothold in New England or is much like Canada where it's not really happening?

    @Kanan I just finished binging this whole timeline and I absolutely love it! I have never seen an Alternate History thread with so much detail. Also, sorry if this has been asked before, but how is Elon Musk in this timeline? Is he still in South Africa? Is he in New Zealand?

    He might be in Natal, since “Elon Musk” doesn’t really sound like an Afrikaans name.

    I believe he’s in the United States as Tesla and SpaceX exists ITTL and he is the head of Tesla and SpaceX ITTL too, unless they are based in Natal, which I highly doubt.
