Submission + - GCHQ chief expresses regret at treatment of Alan Turing->

MoaDweeb writes: The Guardian reports that the current Head of the UK GCHQ, Iain Lobban, told a Leeds audinece that
  "We can't rewrite the past," he said. "We can't wish mid-20th century Britain into a different society with different attitudes. We can be glad that we live in a more tolerant age. And we should remember that the cost of intolerance towards Alan Turing was his loss to the nation."...

"But Turing was not an eccentric, unless you believe that there is only one way of being normal and to be otherwise is to be peculiar. Turing wasn't eccentric. He was unique."
