Lords got it right...

I AM heterosexual and do not believe Alan Turing should be pardoned simply because he has no need of a pardon the definition of which is to forgive for a fault, or release from punishment for a crime, where neither of these apply. The poor man committed suicide and I think it insults him further to ‘pardon’ him, and can only hope that the fact that homophobia is now itself a crime is some small compensation to his living descendents.
