Quoting Toby Young

The Plate has opinions too. Quote the plate.
Toby Young ran one of those non sequitur hit-begging pieces aimed at goading lefties and making the Right Wing crow and squawk and shriek in agreement at what passes for ideas in their world.

He uses George Orwell selectively to batter home a point about how dead George would have hated a prize that co-opted his name after he died being given to people who he may or may not have agreed with but we will never be in a position to know.

I like to call this technique ‘The Puppetry of the Corpse’
