This timeline masterfully shows how good intentions can lead to Heck. Well done.
Göring will almost certainly clash with Bormann, but Hess ITTL died in 1939 in the Munich bombing. So any power base he may have had has by now been destroyed.Göring would probably clash with the StdF (Staff of the Deputy Führer), as Hess and Bormann try to expand the NSDAP's reach and influence.
Göring isn’t as able to rule Germany as Hitler did by keeping everyone fighting each other to stop them creating their own power base greater than his.It would be competition on many fronts: Göring would feel perhaps closer to the Altkämpfer in the Party, the people who bore the brunt of the fight during the Kampfzeit and he would want to make his position unrivalled, while Bormann would want to replace the Old Fighters (who were also rather keen to protect their interests and power) with younger faces, more drilled in the idea of the dominance of the StdF and Party centralisation and exploit Hitler's death to get even more powers for the Deputy Führer with regard to Party administration.
This could lead perhaps to Göring abandoning the Hitler line to some extent and therefore be more active in asserting his position as leader of the NSDAP and reduce the powers of the StdF. He would probably insist on making appointments of Gauleiters and other officials. Also, he might reverse the previous trend and instead work to make the Private Chancellery (Chancellery of the Führer of the NSDAP) the centre of the Party, in order to a) control its activities better b) identify its administration and the Party in general more with him. Of course, Bormann, Hess and the others around them wouldn't go down without a fight, but Göring would be motivated enough to fight tis battle to the end; given the period and the relative power of the two sides, it is safe to say that Göring would win: if Hess made a mistake (like his flight to England or increasing signs of erratic behaviour), he would most likely be eased out, which would allow Göring to give the title of Deputy Führer to someone else or, most likely, abolish it and leave the head of the Private Chancellery deal with most daily Party issues. If this were to happen, Bormann would most likely get the boot soon afterwards.
Of course Göring wouldn't reverse everything set in place in Party policy. He would still be interested in exercising absolute control, and while he would be popular and charismatic, he wouldn't be Hitler. The "Old Fighter" Gauleiters would most likely try to benefit from the vacuum of power and the dismantlment of the StdF and the fights between Hess/Bormann and Göring to assert their independence, and their gratitude for getting reinstated and/or fighting the StdF would end there; the younger Gauleiters. So Göring would probably try to put a leash on them.
There is no way that the partition of Poland will change: it was approved by Hitler, the Wartegau and Danzig Reichgaus are the vast majority of polish land annexed and Goring still wants to expand the Reich. I can see the General government being weaker but nothing substantial since, in the end, Goring is still a Nazi and will use those people as he sees fit. On the Western front, Germany will more than likely annex "just" Eupen-Malmedy from Belgium, Luxembourg and Alsace-Lorraine from France; no "Zone interdite" though.Furthermore, the Party's plans for expansion would probably be dealt a blow; while the two Polish Reichsgaus (Wartegau and Danzig - Westpreußen) would most likely be kept, Norway and the Netherlands would probably not become Reichskommissariats (if they are conquered) and the Army would remain more clearly of control of occupation in the West. Alsace-Lorraine and Luxembourg are more complicated, since the Germans want to annex them and they are neighbouring Germany and small enough to be integrated.
The General Government would be another area which would most likely see changes. With Bormann and Hess out of the frame or unable to do much, the Arbeitsbereich in Poland would probably be rather weaker (if not abolished) and the civilian administration would play a more prominent role. Party members would still be appointed there of course, but it would be for administrative positions. This would help perhaps reduce some of the confusion in the General Government, but it wouldn't work miracles. Also, Frank's days may be numbered, since Göring would probably be angling for making one of his proteges Governor General.
I didn't say that the Polish Reichsgaus would be aboloshed; quite the contrary. About the General Government, I said that the top brass would change and the Arbeitsbereich Polen would be rather weaker than OTL with Hess and Bormann having a difficult time strengthening it.There is no way that the partition of Poland will change: it was approved by Hitler, the Wartegau and Danzig Reichgaus are the vast majority of polish land annexed and Goring still wants to expand the Reich. I can see the General government being weaker but nothing substantial since, in the end, Goring is still a Nazi and will use those people as he sees fit.

what british politician of the time period can unite a country against Russia and Germany and the other ones?
on the other hand mendal will probably work with the ailles [well the ally] better then de Gaulle ever did and still has the French navy .and I also wonder if getting invaded from Sweden might kick up Norwish nationalism which would be a boast for britian.
To be honest, I can't see a path to victory.
Stalling and waiting for a nazi-soviet rupture might be the only way.
Chapter 21 – Passing the Torch
Resignation of Neville Chamberlain
Neville Chamberlain became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in May 1937 at the age of 68, the second oldest in the 20th century so far to be appointed PM (behind Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman). He never intended to lead a foreign policy-oriented government, yet that was what happened. His premiership had been marked by a dramatic increase in Anglo-German tensions, culminating in the outbreak of war in September 1939, despite Chamberlain’s infamous Munich Agreement in 1938, which Hitler had broken in just 3 months.

Neville Chamberlain, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
In July 1940, British forces had just been booted from mainland Europe (except Norway), Britain was arguably in the worst strategic position it ever found itself in, yet Chamberlain had never been more popular. Even among the opposition, Chamberlain had become immensely respected.
Yet Chamberlain was not much longer for this world. He had terminal cancer and he knew it. It was time for him to depart to spend however long he had left in quite retirement. This raised a major question, who was to succeed Neville? A decision made harder with Hoare and Churchill dying in a plane crash back in May . Despite this, Chamberlain’s successor would almost certainly be a member of the present War Cabinet, meaning that the choice would be either:
- Sir Kingsley Wood: Secretary of State for Air 
- Sir John Simon: Chancellor of the Exchequer
- Lord Halifax: Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
- Oliver Stanley: Secretary of State for War
- Lord Hankey: Lord Privy Seal 
- Sir Roger Keyes: First Lord of the Admiralty 
In the final analysis, however, the choice boiled down to Foreign Secretary Viscount Halifax. He was Chamberlain’s preferred choice and had chaired cabinet whilst the PM was in surgery. Additionally, he was supported by much of the Conservative Party and was acceptable to Labour and the Liberals. By now, any temptations that Halifax may have had to explore a negotiated peace were dashed after failures with Italy and Sweden. However, there was just a few problems standing in Halifax’s way.

Viscount Halifax, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
The first of which was that he was a peer of the realm, and therefore a member of the House of Lords. By 1940, the last peer to have served as Prime Minister was Lord Salisbury in 1902, following which it had become a constitutional convention that the PM serve from the House of Commons.
However, during the last several days of his premiership, Chamberlain and Home Secretary Sir John Anderson had drafted legislation to allow for peers to renounce their title for life , allowing them to stand for the Commons. It was arranged in a meeting between Chamberlain, Halifax, Attlee, Greenwood and Sinclair on the 11th of July that after Chamberlain’s resignation and Halifax’s appointment, Chamberlain would vacate his seat in Birmingham Edgbaston in order to give Halifax a seat in the Commons after renouncing his peerage.
On the 11th of July, Chamberlain tendered his resignation to King George VI, advising His Majesty to send for Halifax. Edward Frederick Lindley Wood, 3rd Viscount Halifax kissed hands with the King and was appointed as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom later that day.

The next challenge for the new PM was to assemble a War Cabinet. The new government would have to include all parties. Firstly, Attlee was to be included, being appointed as Lord Privy Seal and Britain’s first ever Deputy Prime Minister , with Arthur Greenwood also appointed as a Minister without portfolio. With Labour represented, Anthony Eden was appointed Foreign Secretary and Leader of the House of Commons to keep the Tory anti-appeasers happy. The non-partisan Home Secretary Sir John Anderson was moved to be Lord President of the Council. The final member of Halifax’s War Cabinet was to represent the Liberals. Whilst Sinclair was not included in the war Cabinet, as the new Secretary of State for Air , he was more than happy to have his party represented by the victor of the last world war, David Lloyd George, who was appointed as Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries .

David Lloyd George, Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries
On the 18th of July, a special Parliamentary session of the House of Commons took place to pass the Peerages Act that had been drafted by Chamberlain and Anderson earlier in the month. It swiftly passed the House, being passed by the Lords and receiving Royal Assent the next day. Following Royal Assent, Halifax renounced his peerages as 3rd Viscount Halifax and 1st Baron Irwin, becoming a commoner simply known as Edward Frederick Lindley Wood, or more simply E. F. L. Wood. He was swiftly nominated as the Conservative candidate for Chamberlain’s vacated seat of Birmingham Edgbaston after Chamberlain had accepted the Stewardship of the Manor of Northstead on July 12th . When the by-election was held on the 5th of August, Wood (formerly Lord Halifax) won unopposed.
Britain was ready for whatever lay ahead.

-  Replacing the departed Churchill.
-  Legislation to enable this passed in 1963 in OTL.
-  Attlee was appointed Lord Privy Seal in 1940 under Churchill in OTL but wasn’t appointed Deputy Prime Minister until 1942.
-  The same job we was given in OTL under Churchill.
-  Lloyd George was offered this role under Churchill in OTL but refused to serve alongside Chamberlain whom he despised.
-  The Stewardship of the Manor of Northstead is a well-known legal fiction in British politics allowing MPs to bypass the ban on resigning their seats.
