Winners so far:
Strong goverments who put it about a bit...
Amazon - having nearly destroyed the retail economies of the West, they have now been handed them on a plate...
Toilet Roll Makers - surely a one off in history?
Medics and carers - becuase they are so key and important at this time
Rishi Sunak - all those female journalists seem to like socialist policies from a good looking guy - who knew?
Super Market Workers - this get the award for the most surprising heroes of the coronavirus war
Loser so far:
Libertarians - sadly total freedom when your whole species is under attack does not cut it as a political strategy.
Airlines and Tourism - This will turn out to be a real long term hit, less travel, just like after 9/11 is baked into the system now. Countries may keep their strict visa systems too.
Government debt - an early and fatal casualty has been any ideas around keeping some sort of track on the Government spending. At least we won't be needing a new runway at Heathrow anymore.
China - not happy with their Government, not one bit.
