    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"?

    it's so sad a man who gave his everything was treated like a common criminal for being gay

    Time to America to do the same and bring everything about Nicola Tesla out, ask for forgiveness for everything he went through because of Edson and bring his studies to light.

    An incredible man who had a love for his country so deep that he sacraficed everything his time his life his beliefs his whole being. Alan Turing was a national hero who we should celebrate every year ... We celebrate guy Fawkes and Halloween ..... I'd celebrate A.T day proudly what a remarkable man ....
