For Prime Minister Infinity British 2017
The recession during the second half of 1961, Conservative Prime Minister Harold Macmillan’s sacking of seven cabinet members (The Night of the Long Knives, 13th July 1962), and the Profumo affair breaking in 1963 (the Secretary of State for War and MP for Stratford-on-Avon John Profumo having an affair with Christine Keeler who was also having an affair with a Soviet diplomat) have affected the governments’ popularity although this has recovered recently due to Reginald Maudling’s Dash For Growth budget. With the resignation of Macmillan due to a mistaken cancer diagnosis and Hugh Gaitskell’s death both Labour and the Conservatives have new leaders, but the Liberals are still led by Jo Grimond, in the first British general election of the 1960’s.
For the past week or so, I’ve been working on a scenario for Prime Minister Infinity
which is based on upcoming UK 2017 General Election.
The scenario is based on the map used in the 2015 scenario provided with the game. All of the polling data was provided by the Electoral Calculus.
Every party leader has been added or changed
– Conservatives have Theresa May
– Labour have Jeremy Corbyn
– Lib Dems have Tim Farron
– UKIP have Paul Nuttall

President Forever 2008 + Primaries
Following the Lib Dems’ crushing defeat in the alternative vote referendum and a drubbing in the local elections, Cameron is forced to push through major constitutional reform to keep Clegg on side. There follows a sweeping Reform Bill, replacing 900 years of monarchy with a United Republic. With an elected House of Lords appointing a new President, much like the US electoral college, who will be moving from Whitehall to Buckingham Palace?
Please note: a big thank you goes to Tom Hughes who put together the original UK 2010 scenario, which was my inspiration, and from which I have adapted my map. His excellent scenario is here.
President Forever 2008 + Primaries
On 19 November 2009, Herman van Rompuy was designated the first permanent President of Europe under the terms of the Lisbon Treaty. But how would things have fared if the decision had been left to the people, and not to heads of state? Would a little-known Belgian have taken the top spot, or would Tony Blair and Jean-Claude Juncker, the original favourites, have battled it out?
