The British monarch is a mere figurehead and doesn't have power to depose Prime Ministers Verence71 16:08, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

The map of disunited kingdom is a little inaccurate. There would be more governmnet support in and around birmingham and where are the communists?


Whilst I can partially agree with this time-lines view that the Loyalist faction in Northern Ireland might go to the far right (see map in article), I find it rather unlikely the Irish Republican community would (Although I don't see them immediately supporting the BPF either). At the point of divergence the 'partition' would be within the living memory of the Irish community in Northern Ireland, who would also remember the distinct lack of co-operation from the "Loyalist" factions who around 15 years earlier refused to participate in the Dublin led parliament of the (then) Irish Free State.

Northern Ireland is going to get rather complicated in this time-line, given that there are at least two Republican factions, whose memory of the harsh treatment they got in the previous decades, is almost certainly going to influence how they respond.

During the "Emergency" (i.e) World War II, the Republic was officially neutral, and in terms of the official government of the Republic I don't see that being different (albeit this is a slightly earlier date.). However, the situation amongst the less moderate elements outside government, may be different. This timeline might see a much earlier "Provisional" style group in Northern Ireland, and possibly a strong reaction from the British (Facist) forces.

Is there an expert on the history of British-Irish relations that's able to explain who the likely factions, leaders could be at this point?
