what would the 'sliding doors' scenario be if BE was in charge during the pandemic?

My initial thought is that broadly not much. In that I don't think we would be racing now, or significantly sooner than current plans. Generally speaking the sport and business of F1 is mostly at the mercy of how well the various world governments are able to deal with the pandemic.

What I do think is that BE might be much more vocal about moving things forward than we have now. But note, I don't expect it would help and we might have more "Helmut Marko... infect them" types of ideas flowing from him. And those would bring harmful negative press and show he is very out of step with modern times/reality. His recent diversity comments are an example of why it's good he is not involved.

I agree, in the circumstances Liberty have handled it well. Bernie hasnít exactly proved to be the right man for this sort of crisis

I just ran across this...

BE, the master of details! Frankly, it was a bit sad reading that story. It does explain why they kept him around. It was purely contractual (he came with the sale) and only as long as to satisfy those requirements.
