The two charities have different priorities. A divorce is probably the 
best result. It would be a shame to move Colossus and Tunny away from 
Bletchley but there's equally good justification for siting a museum of 
computing in Manchester. I'm pretty sure that the Museum of Science and 
Industry would be interested in hosting it if they can raise the cash. 
I've moved an academic collection between universities so I know it can 
be done.
