This must feel good

On the one hand you could say "Oh, so he's a national hero and that's why he gets an apology" but Gordon Brown's apology embraces all prosecuted homosexuals in Britain, so I see the Alan Turing case as a step up rather than down.

I am pleased to have the chance to say how deeply sorry I and we all are for what happened to him. Alan and the many thousands of other gay men who were convicted as he was convicted under homophobic laws were treated terribly. Over the years millions more lived in fear of conviction.

I am proud that those days are gone and that in the last 12 years this government has done so much to make life fairer and more equal for our LGBT community. This recognition of Alan's status as one of Britain's most famous victims of homophobia is another step towards equality and long overdue.,
