Home Sec Amber Rudd: Yeah, I don't understand encryption. So what?


She's not wrong, tbh. She doesn't need to understand encryption to understand how it helps terrorists.

Unfortunately, she does need to understand it if she's to try and formulate any sort of policy in reaction to that, and that's where it's all fallen down for them. Otherwise, you end up in the Canute-like position of trying to repeal maths by force of law, which doesn't work.
