Labour frontbencher Tulip Siddiq is campaigning for clear face masks to be made readily available so that the wearer's mouth can be visible.  It's a laudable aim as muffled voices coming from inside face masks can make conversation difficult at the best of times, but impossible for deaf people and the hard of hearing to understand the rest of us.

Unfortunately, Tulip's mask gives her the terrifying appearance of a horror film villain...

Tulip Siddiq is the MP for Hampstead and Kilburn and is also the Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years.  There is another solution to communication problems surrounding face masks - don't wear one.  An exemption card can be purchased online.
