Kanchelska 2008 - Kanchelska is a small but not tiny fictional country landlocked between Poland and the Ukraine. A left leaning quite poor nation, which is a little behind the times than other former soviet states, with a strong communist base. It has a population of 4 million with a mix of Slav, Polish and Ukranian.

Scotland 2015 - The first election since Scotland became independent in 2010. There has been speculation of whether there is a future for the SNP. The SNP's primary aim, has been acheived and it is now wondered if there is any need for a Nationalist party. Also, 3 of 4 main parties sit on the centre left, so maybe one needs to go? But after all Scotland, is to the left overall, right?

Whatever people's opinion is, the party system becomes more saturated. The SNP has split in 2, over disagreements how the country should be lead. This is a typical rightwing vs leftwing scenario, and Alex Salmond leads the left party. In the last 2011 election, the SNP increased their seats to an impressive 60, however, now that the party is 2 seperate parties, the bigger of the 2, the leftist side, had just over half of that figure.

In this political climate, voters are coming back to Labour, and the Tories and Lib Dems to a lesser extent, in droves! The right wing SNP party, without Salmond's sparkle, could face wipeout! Meanwhile, the left wing SNP Party are heading for losing half of their 30+ seats!

What this means is a rejuvenated Labour party taking the lead, and a re-branded Conservative party -free from the shadow of English Toffs and Thatcher - revival, with a 20%+ share of the vote. Salmond's SNP languish in third, while the Lib Dems are not far behind.

England 2015: At election 2010, Gordon Brown's Labour were absolutely trashed by David Cameron's Conservatives. Brown resigned immediately. In 2011, the United Kingdom implodes after Scotland votes for independence, resulting in a domino effect, with Wales declaring independence in 2012, and Northern Ireland sticking it out until 2014. This is disastrous for Labour(now English Labour), who have lost many of their heartland areas of solid Labour, and there is a fear that in this political climate of parties, that Labour will never return to power and the English Tory vote is too strong in the midlands and southern counties. In a change of face, Labour, along with the Liberal Democrats,(who maintained most of their seats last election) have campaigned aggressively for proportional representational, but the large tory majority outvotes them every time.

This has left Labour with no other choice but to form an Alliance with the Liberal Democrats, bringing back memories of the 80s SDP-Liberal Alliance. Officially known as the Labour-Lib Dem Alliance, the leaders of Labour and the Liberal Demorats(???) hope to put Cameron's Tories out of power after 1 term. Their official party colour is orange to represent the red of Labour and yellow of Lib-Dems combined.

Historical PM Scenario - The best 16 PM's of all time face each other to win over the UK. PM's such as Clement Attlee, Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher and Lloyd George will be certain contenders for sure!

I would like to squeeze in these fictional scenario's sooner rather than later, and yes, i will still pay attention to my official "to do" list, but i can't help but have more ideas bursting out. Anyway, whichever scenario comes first in the poll, i'll start work on it after i finish the 3 scenario's i'm working on (Anarchy in UK!, Crewe & Nantwich 2008 & Win Favour with Labour Career Scenario). The chosen scenario may not start until December/January.

I voted for Kanchelska 2008 because I think it will be something fun and different to see.

However, my second choice will be Scotland 2015 with the German C4E with maybe 8-10 different parties with possibly some nice coalitions.

Maybe the parties could be:

-Conservative

-Labour

-Liberal Democrats

-National Scottish Party

-SDP (Social Democrat with Salmond as leader)

-Green Party

-National Front

-City Party (Some sort of centrist party devoted to the interest of Ediunburgh and Glasgow as opposed to the Rural Party)

-Rural Party (Party to preserve the rural lifestyle)

-English Rights Party :lol:

-Solidarity

-Family Values Party

-European Alliance (for more place to the EU in Scotland)

-Scotland Independence Party (same as the UKIP)

I'm not sure about adding any more fictional parties to that scenario apart from the second SNP one. I would say, keep most of the normal minor parties like the Greens in, keep UKIP, Solidarity and then there's also the SSP(Scottish Socialist Party), keep them in. However, to be fair, i like the idea of the English Rights party and European Alliance. There's quite a good number of English living in the south and Edinburgh. There's already been a countryside party in Scotland 2005 scenario. So maybe include those 2.

Dead heat between Kanchelska and England 2015, with PM Historical catching up. A clear winner is needed! I'll probably do these scenarios in the order they are polled as well.

Ok, thank you CCA. i added in my vote to show your change, but i can't minus a vote for England. I think we might have a winner, as we might've ran ou of members to use their vote.

EDIT: As for Kanchelska, yes the communist party will definetely be strong, i'll make them the second party. It's early days yet. I'm thinking of a ruling government which forces some censorship and a country haunted by a past nuclear accident, so issues could include "decontamination" and "Glasnost". They'll be at least 4 parties, but probably more. This scenario was consolation for myself scrubbing the Bulgaria election off my list.

I've still to make a start on Scotland and Historical PM. When it comes to Historical PM, i may also do Historical Non-PM, or rather, the best leader/politician never to have become a PM.

England 2015 - i have made a start on, which i've finished the map. In the middle of the ridings file, to sort the parties first, then put in preferred results. Still to do events and candidates, and issue statements. It's really the ridings that will take the most time.

Treasurer,

I can help you with the Scotland scenario, since I do have it on my computer.
