    It's a shame that the others castrated aren't getting pardoned also

    the recognition he deserves. Bit bloody late but nevertheless some form of recompense. The human race never ceases to amaze me where we fight what we don’t understand instead of trying to understand what we don’t know.

    He did not crack the German codes, just took credit for it. A team of Marian Rejewski, Henryk Zygalski and Jerzy Różycki broke the code years before the war.

    Can shops still say they won't take £50 notes? Or will that be "OH SO HOMOPHOBIC"?
