Alan Turing apology - about ****** time too

The BBC is reporting Gordon Brown's apology for the despicable treatment of Alan Turing. About time too. Imagine fighting for freedom from fascism and then finding your own government is just as full of hatred and prejudice. Alan Turing was not the only victim here. His talents made Britain pre-eminent in the world of computing and we should have stayed that way, but the narrow minded hatred of a few morons in Whitehall threw it away along with a few other things, our place in the space program for example.

The source article is here in the Torygraph. The Downing Street petition is here.
