Legal "Alan Turing, the Enigma codebreaker who took his own life after being convicted of gross indecency under anti-homosexuality legislation, is to be given a posthumous pardon. The government signalled on Friday that it is prepared to support a backbench bill that would pardon Turing, who died from cyanide poisoning at the age of 41 in 1954 after he was subjected to 'chemical castration'."

I think the government should pardon all those found guilty under the anti-homosexuality laws, or no-one. Not everyone could be a maths genius who played an important role in cracking the Enigma code.
