Any of the government? The Scientists? the opposition parties?

Early on, I quite like the way RS spoke, but only because it was in properly formed sentences and he looked like he was slightly bothered.

I think Nicola Sturgeon has come out looking pretty good. Not sure that will hold up, in the face of unpopular but arguably necessary decisions.

Obviously, New Zealand are looking good. Ireland not bad either.

On a more personal level, the employers who have been flexible and caring. The holiday companies who have handed out refunds. The local shops doing deliveries. The army of Facebook volunteers. The NHS. The teachers and head teachers doing their best.

Rishi Sunak has been very impressive, he picked up the brief very quickly and has been at the helm while so much has changed so quickly. The Exchequer usually moves at the speed of your average glacier, so he must be doing something different.

I'd like to know who managed the NHS Nightingale builds. While we're all grateful they haven't yet been needed in earnest, it was an incredible achievement. I think perhaps the project lead came from the army, because there's been such silence about who it was.

NS can speak in a coherent fashion and has a professional appearance, which is a good start.

Funeral directors, any producer of bleach/disinfectant and hand sanitizer.

No opticians for sure.

Epidemiologists. Not only have they something to get their teeth into, but people now know what they do, and it's nothing to do with skin care!

My local Cafe.
As soon as lockdown started and they had to shut their doors to customers they turned their cafe into a kind of social kitchen and started providing hot, hand made and delivered meals to the elderly and the shielding around the town.
In response alot of people in the town have bought cakes and hot chocolate kits and the like from them to keep them afloat.
I think their efforts will be remembered when they reopen.
