Ah - now this is different!
Cheers! Yeah, it's a new format that I'm experimenting with that will hopefully bridge the gap between...
No, I mean the Sub-Forum. You've put it in 'Before 1900'.
What do you mean?
For once, finally, it means that you aren't going to do something about British politics.
Seriously? I mean, you're not even a one-trick pony are you? You're currently lagging behind a baby horse.
A pony isn't a baby horse though.
A foal is a baby horse, a pony is a breed of horse.

Where were you going with this?
I dunno - something about you failing to do anything original. Meadow did one on Boris Johnson, you failed to do one about David Miliband being Francis Urquhart or something. Then he did that Soviet one, and you did that Russian one, then you both did the one where all the Prime Ministers were in Cards Against Humanity.
'Shuffling The Deck'
Whatever - the point is, this isn't really a good track record.
I happen to think I've made a decent enough contribution, besides - it's Christmas in a couple of weeks, where is your Christian zeal?
I think we lost it when we started reading all that Asushin stuff.
I really hope people don't Google that.
Me too - anyway, where is this going to go?
It's snapshots from an alternate universe, but over a much longer period of time than anything I've done in the past. Again, I'm not really going for anything much in terms of world building, but I hope people realise what the story I'm trying to tell is.
And I've done a couple of pastiches along the way, because Meadow once said that I was really good at them.
You're just a Northern Blue Labour hack, aren't you?
I prefer the term 'A Morrisons Enoch Powell'
I see what you did there. Shall we begin?
Sure thing! A long time ago, on a miserable February morning in Lisbon...
