Battle for power of the Parliament & the Senate!
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 imploded after Scotland voted for independence, resulting in a domino effect, with Northern Ireland declaring independence in 2012, and Wales sticking it out until 2014. This is disastrous for 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 form an alliance. In this first modern England general election, can the Lab-Lib Alliance thwart the “invincible” Tories?
Labour Leadership Election 1976
Prime Minister Harold Wilson has stepped down from his premiership in a surprise move, as he feels at the age of 60, he can no longer carry on in his role to the best of his ability. 6 Labour cabinet ministers have successfully been nominated in the race to become the next leader and PM. Although he is the oldest candidate, James Callaghan’s widespread appeal and experience has made him the favourite.

Glasgow Hillhead 1982 By-election
Following the death of Conservative MP Tam Galbraith, a by-election for Glasgow Hillhead has been set for the 25th of March. A Conservative seat since it’s creation in 1918, the Conservative majority has been shrunk in recent years, as Labour have gained ground. Hopes of a Labour gain though, have been hampered by the newly created Labour breakaway party of the SDP, announcing the high-profile leader of the party, Roy Jenkins, will contest this seat. This is one of the most wealthiest seats in Glasgow, hosting an older business-types demographic along with a large student population. Will the Tories manage to hang on to their only Glasgow seat, with the SDP proving to be a real alternative? Can Labour take advantage of a highly unpopular Thatcher government?
Nyarai – 2000
Nyarai is a landlocked Southern African country, that over the last 5 years, since their landslide victory in 1995, has seen it’s prosperity and regeneration wiped out by the ever-domineering ruling Nyarai African Militant – Patriotic Front party. Once they came into power 10 years ago, and have become evermore dictorial with it’s electorate, disallowing and torturing opposition politicans if they dare to speak out against the Government. Taxes have been raised as the country has been spiralling into debt. In 1997, as the weakened NPP were no longer representative of the ordinary, hardworking citizens of Nyarai, a new party was formed, the DCN – Democratic Congress Now! – have tried hard to defy NAM-PF censorship, however it seems nothing will change, as the NAM-PF will bully at the ballot box…
