"Don't they realise that if there are backdoors anyone can read their private communications - a back door will let anyone in."

I really wonder if they realize that or not. Maybe they do and they just don't care.

I'm reminded of the US' "TSA approved" locks for luggage. Those locks all take one of 8 (IIRC) master keys to open them. All of those keys are readily available for purchase -- or even by 3D printing -- by anybody. The TSA is fully aware of this, and their official stance is that they don't care because that flaw does not have national security implications. It only sucks for the travelers.
