Australia, despite only having  a relatively small number of cases and deaths has just gone closed all bars, nightclubs and restaurants.

Brian agrees with all of these policies and is willing to go further and have a total lockdown for a period to try and beat #coronavirus.

He is amazed that the UK is not in lockdown and Jon and he debate whether the politicians in both countries have acted quickly enough and ha sth right approach.
