The Announcement

in 1891, Topeka is set upon by a rebel force led by 'Sockless' Jerry Simpson, and General Theodore Monteith finds himself outnumbered almost 2 to 1. The civilian population of Topeka is also unsympathetic towards him, and aids the rebels tremendously. By nightfall, Monteith has been forced to abandon all but the eastern third of the city, and has endured heavy casualties to keep that much. A scout brings him word that Colonel Wainwright won't be riding to the rescue this time – the rebels in Kansas City, in coordination with the attack on Topeka, began an uprising designed to keep his forces pinned there. General Monteith sent a messenger under a white flag to Simpson, hoping that negotiating would buy him some time to regroup.

in 1999, Queen Gwen communicates the locations of several influential Illuminati cells to Sir Lance du Lac and tells him, “Crush them completely, my brave knight.” In a series of dazzling attacks, du Lac's Round Table Corps smashes cell after cell. Very few manage to escape, and they assemble to call Queen Gwen on a secure channel to get her to call off du Lac before he finds them, too. “I'm sorry,” she says to the Illuminati leader who calls her, “but you obviously have me mistaken with someone who takes your orders. I am Gwen the First, Queen of all the Britons, and I shall be your doom.” The pitiful few Illuminati realize that they made a horrendous mistake by giving their most ambitious agent control of their greatest enemy.

In 2003, Cal Griffin dreamed chaos. Voices screamed for him to strike. Holding the bejewelled sword high, he hesitated to end the Magic Time.

Yersinia pestis..
In 1760, a terrible silence reigned across the great continent of Europe. The Houses of Hapsburg, Romanov, Stuart, Hohenzollern inter alia had all fallen before the conqueror Yersinia pestis and the Royal families of Europe ruled no more. Visible only at a magnification of 2000c, this enterobacteria had snuck ..
.. in like a jackal and now was master. The Common Europe Home was a wasteland. In short, this house had fallen.

In 2012, at Camp David US President George W Bush awoke with a truly spectacular headache. “Folks, there were two causes” as W would have said, if his head did not feel like an erupting volcano. Firstly, he had after all started drinking. Again. Secondly, his dear wife Condoleezza. Her name was derived from the Italian musical .. Condoleeza Rice
Condoleeza Rice
.. expression, Con dolcezza, meaning "with sweetness". There wasn't much sweetness in what she said yesterday, the red neck word was used in a torrent of abuse and swear words. Oh dear, what to do?

In 2999, anticipation was building for the second instalment of “Personality of the Triple Millennia” which was mind cast across the networks in prime time. On POT3M episode 2, Adolf Hitler was the candidate, the context was the encirclement at Dunkirk and the moment was the telephone call from Guderian requesting ..
.. permission to crush the Allied Expeditionary Force. MC Millennia asked the Fuehrer for his predictions for the next week and the next month, What Next? There was a momentary interference and the Fuehrer was replaced by a Dalek. Exterminate! Exterminate Exterminate! repeats the Dalek. A veteran presenter, the mega personality MC Millennia took this unexpected turn in his stride, “Well, that was a surprise, but hey, that's showbiz!”, returning to the audience, “and tomorrow night have we got a shock in store for you! Be right back, folks!”.

In 1994, London Underground train number AEJX57B pulled smoothly into Liverpool Street Station. The new rolling stock had only been in operation for forty-eight hours. Its 10.28am in the morning and carriage 16A is completely empty. The filthy carriages of the 1962 stock have been replaced with these pristine units. The few .. Carriage 16A

.. late workers seated on the platform should feel privileged. But they don't, they are playing it cool. When you're running 90 minutes late for work, there's no point sweating the small stuff.
