    I'm not sure if this will be much help but you could writes about Priestley's use of dramatic irony
    "Titanic... unsinkable, absolutely unsinkable"
    "There'll be peace and prosperity and rapid progress everywhere"
    Etc.
    It could be mocking the capitalists (who Birling represented) as Priestley was a socialist

    as mentioned you could use dramatic irony for when mr b makes rash claims like "The Germans don't want war," and "the Titanic...absolutely unsinkable." after you can put something like the audience of that time would know the Germans did play a key part in ww2 but the Titanic also sank. Priestley's effective use of dramatic irony makes the audience instantly devalue his opinions. so when mr b follows these claims up with "community and all that nonsnese", we continue to think that he is talking rubbish.Priestley effectively gets the audience to agree with his own socialist view.
    sorry for the lack of SPAG it is quicker to type without. it probably won't be Shelia as they used it in the specimen paper they released
