But I do wonder if the left aren't about to fall into a similar trap. As Ed M starts to glory in his 'inner geek' and placards like this are proudly displayed as the left marches through London....

Don't get me wrong, of course it's funny.
But like the best humour, I suspect its also rooted in a truth - that the left think they are intellectually superior to...well, everyone else really.
Its their Achiles heel - and just as class with the Tories, sooner or later someone will pick them up on it.
