Thank you, your Majesty, for having the courage to do what your government would not.

About freaking time.

Is there any way the Queen can bestow a posthumous knighthood as well? If anyone deserves one, Alan Turing does.

Mods must've checked out for the holiday early.

Unless this is a different Alan Turing than the one mentioned earlier, less than 5 links down.

This is the Alan Turing that invented the meatball sub. It's a common mix-up.

Well, the Crown refused to strip Jimmy Saville of his knighthood, even though he was a Chester.  Because, being dead, he wasn't a knight anymore, anyway.  You can't be a knight unless you're living, and when you die, your knighthood ceases to exist right along with you.

So in short, no, probably not.

if only there were a computer program we could use to prevent dupes....
