 The new spy centre will decode messages that have
 been encrypted. Under new powers due to come into
 force this summer, police will be able to require
 individuals and companies to hand over computer
 "keys", special codes that unlock scrambled messages.

Sorry officer...I can't seem to remember my passphrase :)

I wonder if this will prompt people who care in the UK to frequently
revoke/destroy/recreate their PGP keys.  Otherwise, if forced to hand over
your private key, they can read any old message they've archived on you.
