Petition: Turing for Tenner

A petition to put Alan Turing on  £10 note; the epetitions page.

“Alan Turing is a national hero. His contribution to computer science, and hence to the life of the nation and the world, is incalculable.” The ripple-effect of his theories on modern life continues to grow, and may never stop. The current Bank of England £10 notes are Series E, but Series F notes are already in circulation for some denominations. We therefore call upon the Treasury to request the Bank of England to consider depicting Alan Turing when Series F £10 banknotes are designed.”
