Throughout act 2, Mr Birling's capitalist views are further emphasised, portraying him as an unlikeable character. He seems to believe that he is superior to the proletariats when he says 'Look here, I’m not going to have this, Inspector. You’ll have to apologise at once'

This exposes his class superiority complex, as he patronisingly says this to Inspector Goole. This is also somewhat ironic, as Mr Birling was born into a working-class family but worked his way into being part of the Bourgeoisie.

^^An example of a point from the top of my head, you could expand on it to make it into a paragraph
