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.

Do all of the "Stolen Generation" representatives have a "convicted of X crime" attached to their name as well?
Pardoning Turing will remove that from his name.
