1966 – Carmarthen By-Election

Click Here to Download the Scenario: Carmarthen – 1966

Just weeks after achieving a substantial majority for the Labour Party in Carmarthen at the 1966 General Election, Megan Lloyd-George died of cancer. The by-election in the seat is proving to be much closer than many expected as criticism of the Labour government over local pit closures, rural issues and their treatment of Welsh speaking communities has added pressure to an already unpopular Labour candidate’s campaign. The seat has traditionally been a battle between Labour and the Liberals but Plaid Cymru are on the march in this largely Welsh speaking constituency and their President, Gwynfor Evans, is their candidate in the by-election. Can he pull off a historic victory for the Welsh nationalist party by going from third place to first and winning them their first MP or can Prys Davies hold on for Labour?

Parties and Candidates: 

  • Labour – Gwilym Prys Davies
  • Plaid Cymru – Gwynfor Evans
  • Liberal – Hywel Davies
  • Conservatives – Simon Day

The 1966 Carmarthen By-Election was a pivotal moment in the modern history of Wales as it saw Plaid Cymru elect their first MP to Parliament. It is often considered to be a turning point in the political direction of Wales, with many maintaining that Plaid Cymru’s victory in Carmarthen laid the foundations for devolution in Wales.

2019 – Peterborough By-Election

Click Here to Download the Scenario: Peterborough – 2019

After months of crisis in Westminster, all eyes are on Peterborough for one of the most important by-elections in recent history. The city’s disgraced Labour MP was forced out by a public petiton and all parties are now scrambling to take the seat. The brand new Brexit Party are on the march in this heavily leave voting Labour/Tory marginal. Can Farage’s party get their first MP within eight weeks of launching or will the main parties hold on?

Parties and Candidates: 

  • Labour – Lisa Forbes
  • Brexit Party – Mike Greene / Nigel Farage
  • Conservatives – Paul Bristow / Stewart Jackson
  • Liberal Democrats – Beki Sellick
  • Green Party – Joseph Wells
  • UKIP – John Whitby
  • SDP – Patrick O’Flynn
  • Renew – Peter Ward
  • Independent – Fiona Onasanya / George Galloway / Femi Oluwole

Each of the main parties as well as some minor parties are included. There is a choice of three Independent candidates, Fiona Onasanya (the disgraced former MP), George Galloway (who intended to stand as an Independent left-wing pro-Brexit candidate) and Femi Oluwole (a remain campaigner who sought the endorsement of numerous remain parties to field a single pro-EU candidate).

1896 Alternate Version.

This is an alternate version of VCCzar’s 1896 Scenario, I’ve adjusted regional issue centers to make certain regions friendlier to certain candidates. For example, I made the South and West, more friendly to Pro-Silver, and Anti-Tariff candidates, and made New England more friendly to Pro-Gold, Protectionist candidates, to prevent situations like McKinley winning Alabama, and Bryan winning Vermont.

I’ve added The National Party, the Socialist Labor Party, and a default off Populist party.

What if the populist party nominated it’s own candidate for president rather than co-nominating Bryan? What if Silver Republican Senator, Henry Teller ran for President? What if Eugene Debs ran an election early? All these question and more, can be answered with this scenario.

Updated on June 16th 2019.

I fixed Seymour F. Norton’s attributes and platform from when I copied him over from William Jennings Bryan, I also added Virginian Senator, John W. Daniel, a noted supporter of the “Lost Cause of the Confederacy” myth, who historically declined to be nominated. I changed how many PIPs each candidate has,and finally, I added a “God Meddler” ‘candidate’ in the Simulation ‘party’, for if you want to influence the election.

Quebec 2007 – Le choc des chefs

I pay tribute to malvail and his old scenarios for Forever which helped us a lot

After a bumpy mandate, Charest is seeking re-election. In front of him, the opposition seems weak, luckily for him, the PQ being torn by leadership troubles with André Boisclair as leader. However the ADQ rapidly going up in the polls in the last few months with the Dumont as a charismatic leader..

Could Premier Charest be re-elected? With a majority or minority? Will André Boisclair, first openly homosexual ruler of a great party in North America wins the election? Or will Mario Dumont, leader of the 3rd party, pursue his trend and become Leader of the Official Opposition, or maybe, Premier himself?

And what about Quebec Solidaire? Could this new force matters and bring any MP to the national assembly? By taking the Pequist stronghold of Mercier or Gouin in Montreal? To be continued…

MOD HERE : Quebec – 2007

THERE ARE A LOT OF ALTERNATIVE LEADERS FOR EACH PARTY

The electoral map of Quebec is adapted to the leader you choose. Montréal and Laval will favorize a left-wing leader, Capitale-Nationale and Chaudières-Appalache will favorize a Center-Right leader.

2016 – Race to the White House

(Based on an election game on alternatehistory.com – Account required to view)

What if top-tier candidates on both sides had decided not to run in 2016 and fictional candidates took their place? That is the premise of this scenario which is based on a President Infinity inspired election game on alternatehistory.com.

Will the progressive firebrand Angie Bennett pull off an upset to claim the Democratic nomination or will the establishment-favorites Katy Thompson and James Johnson romp to victory instead? Can the libertarian Democrat Carl Cisco Rutter use his charisma and telegenic appearance to move the party in a new direction and become the first gay president or will his campaign fail to gain steam because he bucks liberal orthodoxy on many issues? Is there any hope for the eccentric Governor of South Carolina Cornelius Benjamin Kennard to revive the party’s hopes in the South or will he simply act as a spoiler to Johnson and the liberal, black Governor of Missouri Martin Walker? Can Anderson and the Elliot Express sweep to an overwhelming victory in the Democratic primaries or is he doomed to failure?  Do any of the lesser known candidates – Lopez, Maxson, and Turner – have any chance to break out and claim the nomination for themselves? And what if Steven Prentice Hart remained in the race, can he become the Democrat’s Reagan and usher in a left-wing, populist takeover of the party?

Can the House Majority Leader and staunch cultural warrior Francisco Juarez bring together evangelical Protestants and Catholics to win the GOP nomination or will he be foiled by the bombastic conservative David McIntosh, a member of the Freedom Caucus? Will neoconservative darling and McCain ally Kathleen Fairchild be able to follow in his footsteps and be the first woman to be nominated by the Republican Party or will the popular Admiral Kelsey Gormley stop her in her tracks and be the first general nominated by a major party since Eisenhower? Can Roy Buehler carve out a place for himself as a palatable moderate conservative and outspoken advocate for right-to-work or has the GOP base soured on nominating yet another moderate? Can former SNL writer and now Rhode Island Governor Charles Schroder win over GOP voters with his brand of libertarianism or will his “coastal elitist” image doom his campaign? And what of the outsiders Coxey and Zakharov – can they ride dissatisfaction with the Washington establishment to victory in the primaries or are their unorthodox positions too much for the Republican base to tolerate? What if Kasey Sungbean ran for president instead of challenging Steven Prentice Hart for CA Senate – can centrism appeal to the modern Republican Party?

Norwich City Council, 2019

So while national politics tears itself apart and nobody knows what the local elections *really* tell us, here’s a less interesting local election in a city close to my heart, the home of Delia, the Canaries and Alan Partridge. Will Labour be able to keep control of Norwich City Council? Probably. Will the Greens, Lib Dems or Conservatives make any gains? That’s up to you! Enjoy
