At long last, the man lauded as the father of computing and Enigma code cracker, who Winston Churchill referred to as a man who played an enormous part in the Allies' victory over Hitler, was yesterday granted a Royal Pardon from his conviction for homosexuality in the 50s.
On the day of freedom for LGBT folks in Utah and the birthday of a little con-man called Joseph Smith - this is a long overdue but timely event in my view.
Maybe this will set a precedent for all the other poor folks who though not famous were subjected to the same cruel convictions.
Light and joy are coming into the world this Christmas.
