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

Well if they upfront admitted that they don't understand either the issue and the tech and called for advice they would likely be less sneering... But here she's repeating the MO, she wants to do something, "to stop criminals" without understanding *anything* about the issue or how anything works, or the chances of success, or the likely response and evolution of the threat, or the consequences and response of non-criminal users, but expects not to be sneered at.

If she wants a grown up response she needs to stop behaving like a petulant child and develop some adult thought processes and behaviours.
