Hasn't parliament got more important things to do ?
Societies change , what is law today may not be law in a few years . Thats a healthy thing . But to then retrospectivly issue apologies to people prosecuted by the old law is surely a waste of parliaments time ? And how do we decide which reverted law should get an apology and which should not ? There is talk of somtheing similar for people shot for 'cowardice' in the first world war . We all know that just as in the cases of Gross indecency these people were wrongly treated by todays standards , and in retrospect the law appears wrong . But is helps no one to apologise for our great grandparents society .
