    Didn't the last Labour government master this? Surely it would've been cheaper to licence it from Darling than reverse engineer it.

    Liquid cooling would never achieve a temperature lower than the ambient temperature. Unless you use TEC-like technology. But maybe we'll need another nuclear power plant or two to support the power draw then...

    You're thinking of water cooling. Liquid cooling, which is what IBM used, can go way below ambient. Think liquid nitrogen, liquid oxygen, liquid helium...

    I believe he's referring to the former government's extensive use of 'spin' doctors - although he'd have been better mentioning McBride, rather than the relatively darling Darling.

    I like your thinking. But surely our Eternal Leader Kim IL Sung has mastered everything, including spin.

    I wonder if they realize that they are creating the way the electrons act.
