I'm off to jail for writing a program that uses public/private key encryption, then sharing it with a a friend

We put up with the the IRA without this level of intrusion, hell we even fought off a bunch of facist nutters for 6 years then dumped all the regulations involved the day after we won....

A few extremist nutters are not goign to be that much of a threat... especially if they are ALREADY known to the security services......

And I'm not going to mention the guys who sent tip offs to the police hotline saying "Hey this guy is a nutter"
