Royal pardon

So Alan Turing gets a posthumous royal pardon. BIG DEAL! The guy should have had a medal considering what he did for the wartime effort. An official apology from HM government would not go amiss too. Why has it taken so long to give him any pardon. It is like he was written out of the history books and yet he was instrumental in Nazi code cracking during the war!

Certainly is! Thanks for sharing Dorothy. Also it does raise the question, which I think others have been raised - of why others convicted of the same "crime" haven't been pardoned. And why has it taken so long?

Exactly as I might have put it too. 60 years is a bit ripe anyway!

Yes, Big deal. Who's the Queen anyway? It should never have happened in the first place. So he was gay...big deal, as you said.
