image for England rewards its greatest hero with castration
Parliament member

Alan Turing was the greatest computer scientist ever born in Britain. He laid the foundations of computing, helped break the Nazi Enigma code and told us how to tell whether a machine could think.

He was prosecuted as a homosexual, chemically castrated as a 'cure', and took his own life, aged 41.

Many are calling for the British Government to apologize to Alan Turing for his treatment and recognize that his work created much of the world we live in and saved the world from Nazi Germany. And an apology would recognize the tragic consequences of prejudice that ended this man's life and career.

It was one of the worst individual injustices of our time towards a man of science.

British scientists and scientist around the world say they won't allow themselves to make the same mistake that Alan Turning made. They complain they won't exploit their intelligence anymore to help a cruel and unpredictable government.

Scientist say that an apology won't change their new convictions of self-preservation.

People on the streets are arguing it was the inefficiency of the British parliament that caused this great injustice.

Sentiments in Britain are that parliament should be abolished and full power be given to the King to prevent this sort of abuse against the people.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
