- Re: Spearhead, wasn't one of the ships in Spaceballs distinctly cock-shaped? Has Gatiss complained about Who slashfic or what brought this on?

- The Turing thing pisses me off, too but if they pardon him, they really should pardon everybody else who was ever prosecuted under that act or it wouldn't be fair as I'm quite sure Turing wasn't the only gay person who (would have) achieved great things.

Yeah, that's my thought here. When dealing with what's an offence and what isn't, the government needs to be consistent. Either pardon everyone prosecuted under any law that used to be in force but no longer is, or none.

And the Justice did pretty much say that much: "accept that such convictions took place and, rather than trying to alter the historical context and to put right what cannot be put right, ensure instead that we never again return to those times." It seems the only consistent approach, to me.

Re: Warhorse - of course it's unrealistic - it's a Stephen Spielberg film. Anyway, I never had plans to see the film (legally or otherwise) - but I do have tickets to see the play here in Toronto in April! That I am looking forward to.

Someone's recently been suggesting that I join the Chinese Lib Dems, and my natural inclination was to say No, purely because we've now seen what the LibDems will "agree" to in the pursuit of power.

Your link has moderated my opinion somewhat... but there's a huge PR battle to be fought really...
