Who have they lost and how have they not behaved like the English, who in Jack's words, "are best at everything. So we've got to do the right things" (pg.42) What type of irony is this? Explain the irony.

They have lost the boy with the Mulberry Birthmark boy after the inferno they set off in chapter 2. Jack claims the English are best at everything. This is ironic because the English boys on this island are quickly falling into savagery rather than being good at creating a civil society. Although Jack says it, I don't think he means it to be ironic so I'm going to say that it is an example of situational irony.
