The Ukraine are in crisis of Crimea What are next President?
Eight years into her Premiership, Margaret Thatcher is still going strong. With a booming economy, she has called an election, hoping to emulate or even improve on her landslide of 1983. Meanwhile, the opposition to her is weak. Having endured a landslide defeat under Michael Foot, Labour are now led by the youthful figure of Neil Kinnock, who has begun the long process of reforming the party. Can he fend off a challenge from the SDP-Liberal Alliance and cement Labour’s place as the main opposition to the Tories, and possibly even challenge them for government?
This is a sequel to my 1983 scenario which I figured I’d do since I already had the 1987 boundaries from that. I have made a few changes to it. The National Front are removed, and Ecology are replaced by the Greens. I have also replaced some of the alternative party leaders. Otherwise, it largely follows the same structure.
After a turbulent few years in British politics, Margaret Thatcher looks set to secure a second term with an increased number of MPs. Meanwhile, the opposition to her is more divided than it has been for a generation. Labour has moved to the left under the leadership of Michael Foot, and has faced years of turmoil that has sunk its standing in the polls. Can they fend off a challenge from the newly formed SDP-Liberal Alliance to remain the main opposition, and can either of them prevent the Tories from winning a majority?
This is my first scenario that I have published, so feedback would be much appreciated.
v1.1: Minor update to amend candidate name and incumbency errors
Parties: All the parties from the original game with logos and leaders changed for 1983. I have also added National Front, Ecology, and the Workers Party of Northern Ireland. The SDP-Liberal Alliance is treated as one party for the purposes of the game.
Leaders: All the 1983 Party Leaders complete with photos and stats. Thanks to GOP Progressive & Ed Gaffney on this one, whose PMF scenario provided much of the resources for the more obscure parties. I have set David Steel to the default Alliance leader, seeing as he led the campaign, but as PM designate, Jenkins could equally be used as well, so he is an option too. The three main parties also have a set of alternative leaders:
Tories: Whitelaw, Howe, and Pym
Labour: Healey, Benn, Shore, Callaghan
Alliance: Jenkins, Owen, Williams
All constituencies have been edited to reflect 1983 boundaries, and support levels amended to reflect the polls at the time of the campaign start. I believe I have done a fairly thorough job on this one, but if you come across a constituency which shouldn’t be there, or any other error, feel free to notify me and I will update the scenario to change it.
Issues and there importance have been changed, there are no debates as was the case in the campaign in real life. I deleted the Independent as an endorser, seeing as it did not exist back then, and to make things more realistic, I have amended starting scores to be higher for the parties that papers are generally very likely to endorse. Now for example, it will be much harder for Labour to win the endorsement of the Telegraph than it was in the original game.
I have also added a couple of events that took place during the campaign period. Though the election was called on the 9th May, I thought that a month long campaign is often not as enjoyable as a longer one. Therefore, the player has a choice between starting on the 9th May, or April 1st.

I didn’t see any Senate 2018 scenarios, so I decided to post my own. Comments as always are welcome!
This is tied into the UAE Presidential Election 2020
The Republicans have held the house for 10 years, but thanks in part to split parties (Tea, and Libertarian parties) and the rise of the American party they have been pushed back to just barley holding the majority with 218 seats. They are poised to not only lose the majority but to be pushed into their smallest minority since the 1940’s. The Americans are likely to expand their territory, but the Democrats are the most likely to pick up the most seats. Who will come out the biggest winner?
Update: As suggested, I have added the “Blue Dog” party, headlined by moving Governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO) over. The party also includes Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Jim Webb (D-VA). Also for fun, I’ve added Independent candidate Mark Cuban. Comments welcome as always.
This is a spin-off of my 2020 Libertarian Revolution campaign. I’ve continued with that theme, but updated it to reflect Trump’s election. It’s 2020 and Donald Trump is running for election, but the Republican Party has split. There are two smaller parties in addition to Trump’s “Populist Republican.”
The “Constitutional Conservative Republican” party, led by Ted Cruz, represents those who are upset about Trump’s lack of Constitutional Conservative values, especially on trade and tariffs.
The “RINO Republican” Party represents the “establishment” Republicans such as Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan who have resisted the Washington shake-up that Trump has started.
Meanwhile the Democrats continue to swing left, but some moderates like John Hickenlooper may try to reclaim the party from its far-left movement.
Of course the Libertarian Party, though not putting up stellar numbers in 2016, has gained momentum. The 2016 runner-up, 39-year-old Austin Petersen headlines a talented group of candidates along with “former” Republican Rand Paul.
One other thing that I did was do the Issues almost completely from scratch. I felt that the original game, and many 2016 scenarios that I downloaded had way too many issues, as many as 50+ with many overlapping. I think that like most things, less is more when it comes to issues and candidates so I kept both at small numbers. The issues have been modeled after the website ontheissues.org, which also makes it easier to evaluate candidates’ positions on those issues. So I have re-done all issue positions one by one for each candidate.
So I hope you like it. Disagree with the candidates or parties? Have a suggestion? Someone missing? Please comment. Thanks for downloading!
