How does Orwell show the pigs change in character?
They are becoming more like their human masters - this time the pigs treat the animals worse than Jones did. Jones used to put some milk in the hens' mash, but the pigs keep it all.
3 of 9
How does Squealer justify the pigs taking the milk and extra apples. Examples.
Propaganda - he says the pigs did it for the benefit of the farm. They need the apples and milk for their "well - being" which is important because they're "brainworkers" Fear - he threatens them with the farms failure if the pigs can't work properly

In which two ways are social classes made more obvious?
Pigs are only ones who suggest resolutions at Sunday meetings and they separate themselves from other animals, set up own headquarters. They behave as if they are superior and deserve to be treated better than the others.

Mollie - wakes up late and leaves work early saying she has a 'stone in her hoof' The cat - hardly ever seen doing work and only turns up at dinner times.
