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.

So, we shouldn't honour Anne Frank?

I'm sure you're aware that honoring and pardoning are two very different things.
No-one has said we shouldn't honor Turing.
