Perhaps one of the stranger conflicts of the late 20th century, The Tight Pants Uprising occurred during the heady days of the 1970s, and centred in London. It has been considered as the last, great gasp of the [Mongolian Consortium], a last-ditch attempt to break apart the venerable [union of Europe|United Isles of Europe].

You see, during the 1970s, the jazz-punk movement had begun to sweep the hip, happening joints of London. The improvisational noise that passed as music for the time, the ethos of do-it-yourself nationalism, and the extremely sexy, tight leather pants the performers wore, had tensions raised high amongst the respectable establishment. The movement began to leave the clubs of England and move to the other Islands of the union, causing a certain level of staid discomfort throughout.

It was at this point that London's governments chose to do something absolutely, monumentally stupid - they banned jazz-punk from the city limits, in an unprecedented unanimous vote. Noone is entirely sure how it went through unanimously, but the reaction from the already mildly roudy and violent practitioners of the artform was entirely predictable. How that reaction took place was not. That clear, violent anger, mixed with the improvisation glee of Jazz lead to a rather difficult to put down riot. You couldn't quite figure out where they were going to strike next, so containing them was nearly impossible. Indeed, the Londoner punk-jazzers started flooding onto the other islands, spreading strike throughout.

In the end, it was [ZENITH] who, in a remarkable act of competency, managed to convinced the various governments of Europe to clear all the laws. With nothing to rebel against, the uprising slowly petered off, and the jazz-punks became completely uncool in record time.
