June 3rd 2015,

on this day London's Imperial War Museum, running a deficit of over 200 million pounds sterling, closed its doors for good

June 4th,on this day former British prime minister David Cameron, his political career in ruins and his personal health beginning to deteriorate, resigned as head of England's Conservative Party.


June 8th,

Prince Charles of Wales, the former heir to the British throne, stunned the world by announcing he would abdicate his title to campaign for the premiership of the newly independent Welsh Republic.

June 10th,on this day London was plunged into its worst blackout in nearly 70 years as the result of a transformer overload; the three-day-long power outage triggered citywide chaos that left 230 people dead and 68 million pound sterling worth of property damage in the English capital.


June 17th,on this day the London Times published its final edition.

The demise of the great newspaper, which had been teetering on the edge of bankruptcy since 2012, was yet another sign of how badly things had deterioriated in the former United Kingdom on David Cameron's watch.

Most former Times staffers either found work at other newspapers or started other publications; the rest found it necessary to change professions.


June 20th,on this day London's Millennium Wheel, the controversial landmark which had opened in 1999 to mark the start of the 21st century, was sold to a Texas-based private firm in a bid to raise funds for the increasingly cash-strapped English government.



June 24th,on this day London was hit with its fifth municipal employees' strike in as many months as sanitation workers walked off the job to protest plans to privatize the city's trash collection service.



June 28th,on this day the former Prince of Wales, Charles Windsor, won election as first premier of the newly independent Welsh Republic.



July 1st,on this day Argentina's neo-Peronista regime conducted its first test launch of a nuclear ballistic missile.


July 5th,on this day on this day the venerable insurance company Lloyd's of London went bankcrupt.
