These Fair Shores: The Commonwealth of New England

Is there a reason that there is a "Where? How?" government?

It was a name that stuck around due to jeers from the opposition. Government ministers would often skip debates and leave the House in the dark until the day of the vote, which it could then be rammed through. This led to the opposition, and newspapers, dubbing it "Where? How?" to mean "Where are the ministers, how does this government function?"

Only three years for Stanfield? Shame.

Yeah... Dukakis came in and absolutely mopped up the Tories unfortunately.
 
There’s quite a few of those by the looks of it, actially.
I like those names. The Federation Government or the Gilded Government, the Golden Government sound nice.

Can I ask what the title First Minister of the Estate means? Is this an old timey name for the head of government or is it an actual, separate department that is headed by the FME?

I wanna know what happened during the "Where? How?" Government. How did it get such an amazing name.

Also Kennedy only served 2 years. Poor guy has no luck.
 
By the different colours I assume the original Liberal party was dissolved and a new one was later refounded.

The article on the Hartford Courant says that Conservatives governed between 2003 and 2007 in a coalition with Liberals while the Prime Ministers list says they governed alone? Is it a retcon?

Is the list of British monarchs different from OTL?

How is Venice ITTL with global warming at a more advanced stage?

@CosmicAsh already explained it.

Peacetime desensitisation. Or, me putting my meagre problems above those with actual problems.
Seen a lot in pro-Russian countries such as Bangladesh during a certain recent event.

I asked about this earlier on the server. It's a light retcon, I think? She said she's gonna tweak the article a bit in a little so keep your eyes pealed I suppose.

Without further ado, and with permission from Ashley, the TFS Q-BAM! Massive thanks once more to Spamavalanche and Gust of the TFS server for helping make (most of) this!

Hi! I’ve been lurking this thread for a while, but I’ve never posted, so apologies if this is disjointed or anything. I had a question, if that’s alright. I noticed that you updated the 2020 U.S. election wikibox a while back, and I saw that since the parties and politics were revamped, the election graphic was changed, but I couldn’t get a good look at it. Could we see the electoral map at full-resolution if you have one?
