In the News "Peers and scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking are once again pushing for an official pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing. Turing's death from cyanide poisoning in 1954 was ruled a suicide, coming after his conviction for gross indecency at a time when homosexuality was illegal." The fact that he still hasn't been pardoned is an utter disgrace.

Uh, that is exactly what it says. Rosa Parks action, and the support by the community, said "no-one should be subject to segregation".
I don't hear Mr Hawking etc saying "Everyone who was unjustly treated because they where gay should be pardoned". I only hear "We should pardon Alan Turing" with no mention of anyone else.


Because you don't listen?(not being LGB or T excuses you from actually knowing that) They have their names behind that proposal for quite some time now. But it's stalled.
