Mr Straw said "the threat from Saddam Hussein in terms of his intentions" was "even starker than we have seen before".
Luckily for the pigs in Orwell's Animal Farm, the other animals have poor memories. Their only grasp of the past is through the Commandments painted on the barn wall
From Chapter 6
".....It was about this time that the pigs suddenly moved into the farmhouse and took up their residence there..... Clover, who thought she remembered a definite ruling against beds, went to the end of the barn and tried to puzzle out the Seven Commandments which were inscribed there. Finding herself unable to read more than individual letters, she fetched Muriel.
"Muriel," she said, "read me the Fourth Commandment. Does it not say something about never sleeping in a bed?"
With some difficulty Muriel spelt it out.
"It says, 'No animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets,"' she announced finally.
Curiously enough, Clover had not remembered that the Fourth Commandment mentioned sheets; but as it was there on the wall, it must have done so. And Squealer, who happened to be passing at this moment, attended by two or three dogs, was able to put the whole matter in its proper perspective...."
