Default New face of the Bank of England's 50 note is revealed as Alan Turing

Best thing that's happened today.
(England won a cricket match, and it hasn't been off the tv-news all day)

Interesting, indeed. Not the most circulating note the 50 I believe, but better late (and seldom) then never.

Indeed, interesting! I've never seen a 50 note, unlikely to either.
Don't like these plastic notes, too springy.

Good for Turing, about time he was more in the national mind.

A late tribute to the man who cracked the german Enigma encryption.
Too sad the he never has been honoured during his lifetime!
