Following a widespread online petition drive to get the Brits to acknowledge their disservice to this hero, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown wrote the apology in an article in The Telegraph. I think it's actually quite a nice piece of work, and it's to Brown's credit. It properly notes the incredible injustices done to gay Brits throughout the years, and concludes with this:
It is thanks to men and women who were totally committed to fighting fascism, people like Alan Turing, that the horrors of the Holocaust and of total war are part of Europe's history and not Europe's present. So on behalf of the British government, and all those who live freely thanks to Alan's work, I am very proud to say: we're sorry. You deserved so much better.Amen.
