    Alan Turing to be pardoned but so should all convicted under anti-gay law

    Alan Turing, the British World War 2 codebreaker and mathematician who is considered the father of modern computer science may receive a post-humous pardon for his 1952 conviction of gross indecency if a private member’s bill is successful.
