Alan Turing - £50 Note

Published 2021-03-25

Today marks the unveiling of the new £50 note from the Bank of England featuring Alan Turing.

It will be officially released on 23rd June to mark his birthday.

Alan Turing was treated very badly by the Government of his time. He was a homosexual at a time it was illegal in Britain. Yet, due to bigotry and intolerance, the world lost a true genius.

We will never know what he could have gone on to achieve, his short life, cut down by the idiocy of stupid ill-thought-out laws.

Let that be a lesson to us all!
