UK ministers to push anti-encryption laws after election

Unfortunately Rudd 'n' May just don't understand encryption.

So let's assume the law is passed, backdoors inserted, and messages decrypted. Your freshly exposed cleartext message reads "Just off to the shops, I've got the list, I'll pick up a curry on the way back, anything else you want?"

You tell me if that's an innocent probationary co-hab off to Asda, or a coded message meaning something a lot more sinister.
