UK Government in "you can't ban mathematics" shocker

Because that is all encryption is, maths. Banning encryption isn't like banning guns, where most people don't have the ability or resources to make one and requires physical transport to redistribute.

An encryption algorithm is just maths. Any maths undergraduate is quite capable of rolling their own and making it available to anyone who needs it.
