The only thing that would be left on the internet if there were built-in backdoors to encryption would be Twitter. And the only one posting on that would be Trump.
At a time when the web community is being encouraged to leave behind http and instead secure websites behind https (encryption certificates) a sitting Prime Minister wants to argue for a completely insecure web?

If the internet is not safe — and no, it never will be — why not communicate in writing?
