EGaffney's Scenarios

Recommended Posts

Had a go at the '79 scenario and got this with Thatcher:

Pretty good result I thought, but then nowhere near the party goal - is 440 seats a little too steep perhaps, given how ridiculously safe a lot of Labour seats were in this period?

Anyways, a really good scenario, I enjoyed playing it. There could be greater variation in region issue centres, but overall it's well balanced.

For a request, I would like to see the 1945 or 1970 election.

OK, I am going to fix the target for the Conservatives - I think I forgot to adjust it from 1983! In tribute to Commoncold the target is now 375, because 388 is just remarkable in a pre-1983 scenario. Seats were a lot safer back then, when there was basically a two-party system. Thanks also to TotPC for the graphics. The download now includes these changes. Are targets for the other scenarios OK?

One thing: the issue positions for the Thatcher era scenarios are too detailed, I can fix them if you want.

I'll keep them as they are, because they are fine in PMF Canada 2008.

Well I liked the concept of a country having an election after its natural resource-dominated economy goes bust; but the intention is to have a Chinese-majority country (kind of like Singapore). So now do you have any suggestions?

Corruption will probably come up, i.e. what to do to the old regime at which people are now presumably angry. Also Unemployment/Social Welfare.

I'm moving house and I won't have reliable internet access for about a week. Here's a summary of what is happening:

1. I'm working on a PR 2009 UK Parliament election, based on modified European results.

2. Then I will design the 1974 elections. This is like parts 2 and 3 of a 3-part project, begun with the 1979 election, because they use the same boundaries.

3. It turns out the 1970 election was fought on different boundaries. So that is effectively a new project. I might do something else instead, if anyone has requests or suggestions.

4. I tried to salvage my old Ireland scenarios, but the Irish electoral system is just way too different from the German one - for one thing, you'd need multi-seat constituencies. For STV elections we'll have to wait for PMF British Columbia 2020...

I've been meaning to play the 1979 election but only got round to playing it once as Labour, very challenging i thought and hard!

Also what's your email? I'll give you Germany 1990, i'm in the middle of test playing of it, but can send you it tonight.

Yes, i noticed that while doing the Labour Leadership 76 scenario. Before 1974 the region of Yorkshire has slightly different boundaries and split into 3 ridings. Also older counties like Avon.

I agree, most of my scenarios are on the "hard" side. Hopefully it doesn't put people off. It's certainly possible to get good wins.

Apparently lots of people in North Lincolnshire are very unhappy if you say they live in "Yorkshire and the Humber"!

That's ok thats the way i like 'em, hard. North Lincolnshire has different demographics to Humber, higher income earners of such.

After the UK scenarios my next project will be Scandinavian Union - 2009 (based on the alternate history unified state in the Paradox Interactive game "Victoria").

Very nice! I kind of based Stormark and Gimli off of it actually.

I like the sound of it. So this will be fictional parties, but what countries are you including? Are you also including Iceland as well as Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland?

The Union consists of Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Greenland, Faroe Islands and Aland Islands. (Iceland would be traditionally considered part of Scandinavia, whereas Finland wouldn't, right?) The useful thing is that many of the Nordic countries have a similar party structure:

- a socialist and a social democratic party on the centre-left

- an agrarian and a social liberal party in the centre

- a conservative, a conservative-liberal and a Christian Democratic party on the centre-right

- a national democratic party on the hard-right

so with these, you create 6-7 union parties with really complicated names, like the Vänsterpartiet-Gröna and the Konservative Högerpartiet, and then add a party of allied independence movements, for the Faroes and Greenland in particular.

If you're basing the scenario off of the event in Victoria, Finland could conceivably be part of the Scandinavian Union as a part of Sweden. Might make for an interesting third party, some sort of Finnish seperatist party, or for a Finnish Seperatism platform-plank.

Iceland and Greenland would definitely fit as territories of Denmark; Greenland is still nominally a part of Denmark and Iceland didn't become independent until after World War II.

Assuming you're sticking to the idea of Union coming about in the 19th Century, as in Victoria, would you include the Virgin Islands as well, or would you endeavor to keep the timeline intact other than Scandinavia uniting (ie, the sale of the islands to the United States in 1917)?

Finland is in as a state of the Union. Either it was given statehood after demands from Finnish nationalists, or for balance of power reasons to ensure Sweden-Finland didn't have a majority of the population. Similarly with Icelandic and Greenlandic nationalism. Essentially, every nation except the Sami have a state. Nationalism will be an issue. The radical left/right parties and agrarians will be in favour of decentralisation, other parties will oppose it. Either the Virgin Islands have been sold or they are a minor colony that's more or less forgotten by the metropole, like the UK's Caribbean islands.

Provisional party list:

Union Socialists - Unionssocialisterna - US

Conservative-Right - Konservative Högerpartiet - KH

Left-Greens - Vänsterpartiet-Gröna - VG

Union Liberal - Liberala Unionspartiet - LU

Centre - Centerpartiet - CT

National Democrats - Nationaldemokraterna - ND

Christian Democrats - Kristdemokraterna - KD

Independence - Nationalintressepartit - NI

Gotcha. Looks like it'll be a fun scenario to play! When are you planning on having the scenario set? 2009 or earlier? If it's earlier, the Virgin Islands might make for a platform point.

2009, based on current polls and results, with coalitions based on what makes the most fun. Virgin Islands aren't going to be an issue (presumably the progressive Nordics would have been among the first to let their colonies free).
