God Save the Queen, Parts 18-23 by Chris Oakley.

Author says: following installment one published in the May 2010 Edition of CTT, we develop our what-if story set in the year 2015 based upon a fictional article in the New Statesman in which Cameron is worse than we imagined, much worse. Please note that the opinions expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the author(s).

Part 18: May 21st, on this day the French government bought the Channel islands of Jersey and Guernsey from England.



Part 19: May 22nd, on this day Downing Street's fears about the neo-Peronista regime in Argentina were realized when the Argentine defense ministry announced it had successfully test-detonated a 12-kiloton nuclear device at a remote undisclosed location.

The test, portions of which were shown on Argentina's state-run TV network, sparked fears of a new global nuclear arms race and another Falklands War.

Part 20: May 24th, on this day the United States began taking possession of the former United Kingdom's nuclear arsenal under the terms of a secret agreement made two years earlier between the Cameron government and the administration of President Mike Huckabee.

The pact was intended to keep British nuclear weapons from falling into the wrong hands if the UK collapsed.


Part 21: May 27th, on this day art lovers around the world began a massive online protest campaign in response to plans by the English government to auction off most of the painting collection at London's National Gallery to reduce the national deficit the new English state had inherited from the defunct Cameron administration.



Part 22: May 30th, on this day Liberal Democratic leader Nick Clegg was wounded in an assassination attempt during a party rally in Manchester.

The would-be assassin, who subsequently fled to the US and spent three months in hiding before he was arrested in New York City on an unrelated charge, was a British National Party fanatic who blamed Clegg and other prominent left-wingers for the collapse of the United Kingdom.


Part 23: May 31st, on this day the airline formerly known as British Airways merged with United Airlines of the US.

Possibilities such as America becoming a Marxist superpower, aliens influencing human history in the 18th century and Teddy Roosevelt winning his 3rd term as president abound in this interesting fictional blog.
