Actually it is already current law in UK (albeit being challenged at the High Court), which is why measures such as vpn are essential for anyone who cares about their privacy.

A separate consultation was initiated by the government in May for "removing electronic protection" with a warrant under the Act. This may or may not become law. I think it probably would not due to huge and wide security implications, see http://www.computerworlduk.com/security/draft-investigatory-powers-bill-what-you-need-know-3629116/
