UK Shocks to the System

Inspired by the thought experiment from the ever-excellent: http://iamlegionnaire.wordpress.com/2014/08/15/shocks-to-the-system/
I really like this idea and am kicking myself for not having thought of it. Mine is more topical.

WHAT IF?

  • The Sierra Leone volunteer in the Hampstead Hospital spread Ebola via the air to a single NHS worker by random chance, who hopped on the Tube to get home with millions of other people, some of which are on their way to Heathrow Airport and ports unknown?
  • The reason the BBC conspired to hide evidence of paedophilic entertainers is because they recruit victims with their casting for children’s programming?
  • There was a single vaccine for every disease in existence, but it killed 10% of its users horribly? Would the Government fund its use or make it compulsory for the Public Health?
  • When the inflation rates rise, millions are made homeless and Jew-owned banks repossessing were blamed in a conspiracy?
  • A single London borough declared and enacted Sharia Law? Would it be a separate state? A declaration of civil war? What if it were voted in democratically by immigrant voters? What if it began expanding?
  • Sex education in state schools begin running more practical lessons?
  • Public sector workers destroyed the robots who replaced their jobs, including ambulance workers?
  • The NHS hospitals ground to a sudden halt in London due to decades of embezzlement?
  • The London Riots started up again, targeting native Brits for ‘racism’?
  • Tasty food was banned thanks to the Nanny State, and bland food the only option? Non-alcoholic beer/wine?
  • Food prices sharply spiked and many in urban areas were starving?
  • Negotiation failures with energy suppliers cause rolling blackouts across the country, during a cold winter?
  • The coal runs out?
  • In 10 years, there were two parties: the Islamic Party of Great Britain and some further-right version of UKIP? The former kept winning by vote-rigging?
  • Demographic changes turning London minority-majority call for permanent reparations from the rest of the country?
  • Prisons move underground to save space, or out into the sea?
  • Human Rights were completely abolished?
  • Freedom of Association were outlawed as prejudice?
  • The European Union orders euthanasia of all those above a certain age and below a certain health level, because they are a drain on the environment?
  • The private sector was taxed at 99%?
  • A new form of multiculturalism arises, where the country is divided by culture, instead of borough, each with its own customs?
  • There were no borders?
  • Our official language becomes Arabic?
  • Every second citizen is placed on benefits paid for by the other half and Labour wins every election hence?
  • Marriage is banned as a symbol of patriarchy?
  • The Monarchy is abolished and we gain a Presidency?
  • Votes are counted by computer?
  • ID cards are embedded in our hands at birth/infancy as proof of citizenship?
  • Parenting is deemed too important to leave to the natural birth parents, and The State demands to raise all children until the age of 18, released on good behaviour?
  • The next PM was a black, Muslim lesbian who listens to Dubstep and shoots puppies?

And finally,

  • We run out of tea.

Must be off, going on a tea run.
