"Imagine a world where e2e encryption is scrapped from WhatsApp.

Terrorist will just stop using WhatsApp.

Public Key encryption exists and will never cease to exist - but we have elected idiots who continually exhibit their stupidity.

I used to think they were all in the cohort of the evil-lizards - but nope, they're just a bit thick."

Not thick at all. All non-breakable communications will be declared illegal. Anyone using them will be locked up until they provide the means to decrypt them (legislation for this already exists it you are arrested for something else).

Terrorists will change to non digital codes like prearranged phrases.
