“The laws of Australia prevail in Australia, I can assure you of that,” Turnbull said. “The laws of mathematics are very commendable, but the only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia.” Please let that sink in. The laws of math are “commendable.” Turnbull is very bluntly saying that Australia simply won’t have end-to-end encryption. The laws of math don’t change just because Australia wants them to.
