    1. Alan Turing I would think, belongs to a small group of humanity who could rightly claim to have saved millions of lives! His recent posthumous royal pardon for the ‘crime’ of homosexuality can be seen as a nation coming to grips with an outrageous injustice (and as Mary states, “about time”).

      The argument against giving this pardon was (paraphrasing) ‘he new the law at the time, and new he was breaking it’. But now that it has been acknowledged (inferred) that it is the law that was unjust, it would be my hope that the all who are, or were, also convicted of homosexuality, also be given such a pardon. Now that would be a legacy to Alan Turing that I fantasise that he might think worth having died for.
