Re: West Wing timeline divergence?
^WHilst you are correct the UK does not have a written constitution which mandates an election every four years it does have a law which mandadtes elections every five years now. Even before the current law was passed an election was still automatically called five years after the last one. The only difference is it removes the provision that the Government of the day could call an election when it was most benefical to them.
But couldn't Congress pass a special act defering an election?
