See how @mailonline is shaming someone wearing a 'Hidden Disabilities' lanyard as part of the government's targeted fear campaign? What do you make of this, @sunflwrlanyards @DisabilityUK ?

(I have edited the photo to protect their privacy)
Hi @AsdaServiceTeam @asda why are you allowing press photographers to harass and target disabled people in your stores? The woman is wearing a sign saying 'Hidden Disabilities'.
If you see a press photographer taking photos of mask exempt people in the supermarket, please take a photo of *them*....we'll create a gallery of people who make their money via the harassment of disabled people.
Hi @asda @AsdaServiceTeam why aren't you answering? The lady is wearing a 'Hidden Disabilities' lanyard. Apologise now for letting a @MailOnline press photographer in your store to harras people who you're legally required NOT to discriminate against.

THREAD - Face Covering Regulations: How the UK government instructed supermarkets and major retailers to respond to exemptions. /1
Last year the heads of supermarkets and *major* retailers received a ‘secret’ Cabinet Office document about face covering exemptions /2
An important point to make here is that small independent businesses were NOT given the same details. And neither has the government ever shared it with the public. In fact, they REALLY do not want you to see it. /3

Should I release a non-public document this afternoon that the Cabinet Office sent to supermarkets about exemptions?
I obtained the document legally, by the way. And disclosure would be 100% legal.
The government and police are now playing so nasty that I feel it's time.

If you're genuinely being persistently *targeted* and/or harassed on Twitter because you cannot wear a mask and it is having a substantial effect on you, I suggest you report the accounts to your local police force for malicious communication.

This includes 77th Brigade
If somebody is alarming you, for example saying you should not be allowed to shop or exist because of your disability, send them the above screenshot.
This isn't a free speech issue, it's about whether or not someone is oppressing you - and attempting to remove your inalienable right to exist - because of your disability.

Matt Hancock says he applauds @Morrisons decision that everyone must wear a mask "unless they clearly have a medical reason".

What does 'clearly' mean, @MattHancock ? 💁‍♀️

#HiddenDisabilities
The worse thing about all this is that small shops will now think they have the right to harass people. Will just avoid them though, don't care if they go out of business if they act like that.
