What do you think is going to happen to Liz, Chaz and Wills?


I’m hedging my bet there. I think Charles will change his name when/if he’s king. And if something does happen to all 3, then little George keeps me in the game.


The best case scenario is they all get a coronation and then step down within a few months that way we all get loads of extra bank holidays.

Mike Pence... well, at least according to one side of the civil war that erupts afterwards.

UK Prime Minister in 2020
Theresa May, although she will be quickly be replaced when the full scale of the Brexit crisis/recession becomes apparent. Labour, probably still with Corbyn, campaign for an emergency mandate for permanent single market membership. They are swept to victory and along side the resurgent Liberal Democrats whilst the Conservative party is almost utterly annihilated in retribution for inflicting economic misery on the UK via the EU referendum. Corbyn then later proves hopelessly ineffectual at handling the crisis and is replaced with someone else from within the Labour party.

UK Monarch 2020
King Charles. Elizabeth is already over the odds on life expectancy. There will be a lot of calls in the media for him to let William succeed but he will ultimately ignore because since when has Charles Winsor ever given a gooseberry fool about what anyone else thinks? A long line of controversies and dramatically undermined support for the monarchy quickly ensues.

UK News
See second answer. Brexit is either an outright disaster or is less so but helps spark a recession due to the already very high levels of consumer debt. Possible shortages and panic buying as failure to properly prepare ports and airports for the extra work required to process imports results in empty shelves in some parts of the country.

World News
Mainly Trump and the US election. I won't bother getting more specific than that because when you're dealing with gooseberry fool as insane as the Trump presidency there are no bearings to take.

Celebrity Death
The Queen, obviously. Also Trump. Please, please, also Trump.

Sports News
The England football team continues to be gooseberry fool and every one continues to act surprised.

Forum News (GRcade only)
GRcade is revealed to be an genius and insidious ploy to monitor the activities of its members as part of an international illuminati conspiracy. The members end up waging a covert and dangerous struggle to unearth the truth before it's too late.

Tech Developments
First mass market wearable neural interface device is released but seems fairly unreliable compared to mouse and keyboard. It takes a decade before the technology eventually supplants old interface devices and the dominant control method.

Since he saw that he'd be the first King Charles since the only other King Charles' were executed by parliament, and sent into exile, and there was the civil war, and he decided he might adopt one of his other names (i.e. Arthur) upon his ascension to the throne?

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Technology - Mercedes S class introduces the first full augmented reality car windscreen that shows realtime data on road layout, other traffic including its speed and keeper details and on screen sat nav displays. Police utilise technology to integrate tax, insurance and MOT database checks and facial recognition software. A generational leap from current automatic number plate recognition systems.
