Royal pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing.
Turing was a mathematical genius who developed the Turing machine, which is considered to have formed the basis of modern computing. He was castrated in 1952 after he was convicted of homosexual activity. Two years later he took his own life.
Took them long enough. The Turing machine changed the face of the war and he probably saved ten's of thousands of lives.
Yeah--just a bit late.
Hopefully this will lead to some action about others similarly persecuted.
