Q&A with Squealer
By Reporter Piggie
15 August 1945
Squealer, a small fat porker, is the spokesman of
the great Manor Farm. He has made major
contributions to the Farm since the beginning
when he has been assisting the President,
Napoleon, in liberating the animals and
advancing the farm. Renowned for his
impressive speech and incredible ability in
assisting President Napoleon, we would like to
explore more about the legendary story of the
1. What is the rationale of the Republic?
The Manor Farm, or officially, the Republic, is a
home for all liberated animals. Here, all animals
work for their own, lives are no doubt better than
when Jones was in charge. We work in the spirit

stretched his loving arms to light the unhappy
animals on other farms. It is thereby my greatest
honour to be able to work under our president,
Comrade Napoleon!

Before that I would like to express my deepest
gratitude to our Leader, Comrade Napoleon in
making the windmill possible. He advocated the
windmill and aimed at improving our living

through milling corn; it embodies the blood,
sweat and tears of all animals in their
enslavement and their pursuit for a better life,
the windmill is the result of and compensation
for their hard work. Now, we are working on
another windmill and expecting more to come

prosperity of the Farm!

Soon after, the windmill was blasted by the evil
humans! Not only was the foundation destroyed,
the fallen stones were flung to hundred yards

There is no rose without a thorn, same for the

5. What is the ultimate goal of the Manor Farm?
All animals deserve the right to be free and

as well. “Long Live President Napoleon! Long
Live Manor Farm!”
