Royal pardon for codebreaker Turing

Pardon for Alan Turing- father of computer science- artificial intelligence and codebreaker – and gay man convicted for his sexuality who underwent chemical castration and later killed himself in 1954. Good on everyone that pushed for the UK to issue the pardon- signed by Queen Elizabeth today. Better late than never.
