In France we have also already a law wich "allows the police to jail people 
who don't surrender encryption keys" when they are suspected. 

But it's different from what you seem to say  (or maybe I don't understand).

Does the UK governement really want all the people using encryption in order 
to protect their privacy provide a copy of their private key before using 
it ?
