I've said this before - you can't uninvent/undiscover maths.

If you put a back door in, the terrorists move to another (or their own) platform using the same technology, leaving everyone else who's innocent open to prying eyes.

Just because you make end to end encryption unlawful doesn't stop criminals from being criminals. Are these people thick?
