Well, I guess if that happened, then the Brits would've gotten the last laugh on us Americans in the end anyhow. :P

Nice pic, very much thinking big (in more than one sense) here. :D

Is it just me or do the gothic architecture and high-tech spaceships go pretty well together?

Hi, I absolutely love your work, I imagine visions of the future all the time along with many other people around the world, and I can see similar scenes, there is a top quality website called abovetopsecret.com which is full of conspiracy, Armageddon and end times prediction threads, hundreds of thousands of people use the message boards for civilised discussions every day, who are not artistic at all but they will connect with your artwork like it was one of there own visions, just as I have done.

I am putting together a thread for the website with an emphasis on the fact that if millions of people around the world have such vivid imagination, dreams and vision of the future, then surely looking beyond all the end of the world prophesy almost proves in a way that the future is still to come in one form or another.

I am asking you for your permission to feature your artwork along with around twenty other artists, on the site, in the thread, with strict instructions not to copy it, and with full recognition to you, so that people can appreciate the dreams and visions of others and perhaps look beyond the panic of the demise of the human race, with all the Armageddon discussion and be prepared to fight for a better way of life for all.

There is no financial gain or any other benefit for me or anyone else by doing this, it is simply to get exposure for your artistic vision, and help others take a look outside the box.

I won't feature your work without permission and I will link you to the thread if it is given.

Kind regards, Ed

This looks like it would totally fit in the Harry Potter fanfiction by Marquis Black called "The Dark Wars" in it the European Union did not form, the British empire didn't collapse. This definitely has what I imagined in terms of technology :P

England is one country in a union with three others Wales,Scotland and Northern Ireland. Referring to the the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland as just "England" is like me referring to the United states as Texas or Delaware etc .

I doubt that any change in the 20th century would change our science for the better like this. If anything a good argument would be if the Christian Dark Ages never happened. I personally feel we would be close to this .
