Latest Turing e-Petition

I was going to post about creating videos but will save that for another day (I have a long video to watch first!). Instead I’ll post about the petition to put Alan Turing on the 10 pound note. The last e-petition concerning Turing – to grant him a pardon – has yet to succeed. This is mainly because it’s a general principle in this country that someone can’t be pardoned simply because the act is no longer criminal. This new petition probably has a greater chance of success. It’s not a certainty, scientists have been well-represented on our notes, for example Newton, Faraday, Nightingale and Darwin, but as Darwin is currently on the 10 HM Treasury may in the interest of balance opt for a non-scientist for that note.
