    How about NZ and Wales?

    NZ population: ~4.9 million
    Wales population: ~3.1 million

    NZ deaths (until 23/3): 18
    Wales deaths (until 25/3): 774

    I suspect the difference is that that New Zealand has the advantage of not having a load of infectious English people living next door to it! Also doesn’t have Boris Johnson as it’s political leader
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    That's how it's done Boris!

    No new cases and 19 dead in total.

    I'm sure we are comparing like for like
    Yes, of course we are. 4.8 million (half of them in one city) vs 60 million, in a country 10% bigger than the UK.

    BTW friends over there saw their PM in much the same light as most here saw Boris last year. Their opinion has changed drastically since CV appeared.

    She's gone from jovial buffoon to competent leader, or from jovial buffoon to incompetent leader? In your friend's opinion. Or something else?

    From lightweight to inspriational leader. Both of them. Competence is another issue entirely , and in both cases has been devolved to people who really understand what's going on and how to deal with it. Good leaders do just that, lead. They don't have to do.

    Devolving leadership? Do you mean giving it to unelected people?

    Or are you saying that it's more like Dom devolved his leadership to someone who really understands - Boris. Who in turn, when things got difficult, hid in a fridge.

    Inspiring stuff indeed.

    Churches in Ireland had this figured out at the end of February. It wasn't difficult.

    How exactly did that help all the businesses enduring a far stricter lockdown than the UK?

    You're conflating two entirely unrelated topics. The question was, how is NZ protecting businesses and jobs? The more severe the CV measures, the more expensive they likely are one way or the other.

    The science is pretty obvious why this really wouldn't help. Those nice scientists explained it in basic terms for people like you, did you need a refresher in easy words?
