"Bluebottles to a dead cat"

I take it that Peter Hitchens is not a great fan of the occupy protest.

His Mail on Sunday column this morning begins with the quote that every crank, dingbat and fanatic in Southern England has found his or her way to the camp by the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral.

Having apparently walked among the campers he says and I quote

As George Orwell once said, such things attract the people he jeered at as ‘sandal-wearers’, ‘nudists’, ‘sex-maniacs’ and ‘vegetarians with wilting beards’ .  .  . the sort who are drawn to ‘progressive’ causes ‘like bluebottles to a dead cat’.
