The channels to MPs seem to be lobbyists, think tanks and party policy
units.  Unfortunately, those all choose their experts to match their
existing views, rather than the other way round.

The only way to educate MPs on crypto policy is to turn it into a major
public issue -- in a similar way to global warming.  Then they will at
least be willing to be educated to the "sound bite" level -- we can't
hope for better than that.
