The Tizard mission

The British government have sent us a scientific delegation led by Henry Tizard with an interesting proposal. The British are willing to pool their research efforts with ours in several key areas as they do not have the industrial capacity to produce their inventions in great enough numbers.

Chamberlain Resigns

With the war developing to the detriment of us and our allies, the Prime Minister has come under fire for both his peacetime and wartime decisions at critical junctions. At a moment when Britain needs to stand united more than ever, it finds itself divided as portions of the parliament holds Chamberlain in contempt.

Lacking vital support from Labour, the Prime Minister has made the decision to resign, favoring Lord Halifax as his replacement. However, Halifax has been skeptical and Chamberlain has advised the King to call on Winston Churchill. Churchill, who has long warned of the war that is now upon us, is believed to be capable leading us through it.

Chamberlain Passes Away

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain has fallen ill recently, despite previously generally having been healthy for his age. After being diagnosed with bowel cancer, increased pain and lost sleep has led him to resign from his post. Chamberlain still enjoys strong popular support and steps down only as a last resort, realizing he will not live to return to work.

The question remains who will take up the torch after this great statesman and lead Britain through the dark times that may still lie ahead of us.

The Berlin-Moscow Axis

A full military alliance between the Germans and the Soviets has the potential to overthrow the world order and bring about a new era of totalitarianism. In order to counter this development we must forge the Democratic nations of the world into a Grand Alliance to combat the Nazi-Communist menace.

London Conference

The German government has started to agitate over the status of Slovenia, which they claim is the historic German province of Carniola, where they claim that Germans and Slovenes are being oppressed by the Yugoslav government. His Majesty's Government has invited the governments of France, Germany and Italy to a conference in London to seek a fair resolution this issue. There is no doubt that the small German minority wishes to join Germany, but the wishes of the Slovene population are less clear. Germany seems ready to let slip the dogs of war over this and the dark clouds of war gather once more upon the continent of Europe.

King George V Dies

His Majesty, George V, King of United Kingdom and the British Dominions and Emperor of India has passed away. His quiet calm and devotion to his subjects saw the Empire through both the Great War and the Great Depression. His son will assume the mantle as King Edward VIII, but there are already concerns that he will be too independent of thought. Stanley Baldwin and Neville Chamberlain are preparing to ensure that he will accept direction from the Prime Minister and the Cabinet.

King Edward Abdicates

Prime Minister Baldwin has made it quite clear that the dignity of the King-Emperor will be impinged if he were to marry not just a commoner, but also a divorcee and if that was not bad enough, an American. After much soul searching his majesty has chosen love over duty and has chosen to abdicate. His younger brother, Albert, will assume the mantle as King George VI. London bookmakers are already taking odds on whether this shy man will make it to his own coronation.

Return of the King

It is no secret that no love is lost between George VI and the [Root.GetRulingParty]. Voices in parliament are now calling for his resignation in favour of his exiled brother, Edward the VIII. This is a man less foreign to the idea of unity through strength, and a man with a vision for England. His are the qualities we seek in a leader of our nation!

Free India Government Established

With the support of Japan, Indian nationalists have established a government-in-exile, the Azad Hind.

The nationalists are spreading propaganda in the Raj, and encouraging Sepoy desertion. While they are lacking support for now, their efforts could eventually become dangerous.

Stanley Baldwin Resigns

Two weeks after the coronation of King George VI, Mr. Baldwin has announced that he will resign the premiership in order to retire at the age of 70. Having led the National Government on-and-off since 1923, he has been the steady hand responsible for bringing the British Empire out of the Great Depression, and in recent years has reluctantly overseen the beginning of Imperial re-armament and the abdication of King Edward VIII. He steps down as a popular and successful prime minister, but has he done enough to counter the growing threat from Germany?
