Here we go again... UK Prime Minister urges nerds to come up with magic crypto backdoors

WibbleMe

I would suggest that the crypto key is issued by the government that is the "country of origin" where the data is sent from or stored ie. website/email from example.com would use a SSL key/cert issue by uk.gov allowing data for the .co.uk website to be decrypted by those officials that need to access the data legally. Of course, this would be have be compulsory stopping cert providers issuing certs to data providers in another country.
