    DWP making blanket requests to leisure facilities to send all & any CCTV footage of disabled customers, so DWP can persecute disabled people who dare to go out in public @AmnestyUK @libertyhq @jeremycorbyn @johnmcdonnellMP

        I would note crucially that blanket request is profiling which is against HR and equality act. To simply suspect all disabled people is prejudice.

        Replying to @TenPercent @AmnestyUK and
        Data Protection prevents this

        clearly it doesn't and the history of data being used unlawfully by govt is long and inglorious.

        The Act makes it clear you can’t use recorded images for any other reason, unless you have the firm written agreement of the data subject

    Pardon my French, but what the bleeding f%#k?! This is utterly sickening. :cry::mad::cry::mad:

    It's too much to hope that these conservative governments (globally speaking) will be held accountable down the track for destroying so much and so many people.

    I'm not a UK citizen or resident, but if there's anything I can sign or do to help from behind my computer, please do post about it/let me know.
