The problem with the cyberpunk genre...

My default "assumed setting" for cyberpunk games for the last four years included (among other things) Theresa May coming to power in the UK without a real mandate, due in large part to deeply divided opposition. This seemed like the option most likely to facilitate a dystopian nightmare.

If things continue like this, her government will last another 6-8 years before collapsing in a period of game-facilitating political and social chaos.

If England goes to war with Poland in the mid-2020s over copyright issues, I hereby promise to stop imagining things.
