Ludwig Wittgenstein and Lembit Opik

The parallels between the great philosopher and the Lib Dem MP for Montgomery are uncanny.
Wittgenstein left his aeronautical research in Manchester in 1911 to study mathematical logic with Russell in Trinity College, Cambridge.
And:
Lembit Opik started Bristol University as an Aeronautical Engineering student in 1983 but graduated in Philosophy in 1987.
