Winston Smith enters "Victory Mansions"; there is no victory for him, and no lasting victory for anyone except Big Brother in the novel.
The Ministry of Truth dedicates itself to destroying truth.
Its slogans are deeply ironic.
The names of the other ministries are similarly ironic: the Ministry of Love handles torture.

Valedictorian, TA, Librarian, Historian, Scientist, Super Tutor, Tutor, Dean's List
The three slogans are in itself the ironies in the book. The names of the ministries are also ironies in a simplest form.

what you might want to add is the fact that Winston always thought O'Brien was exactly like him, he 'knew' that O'Brien loved the past as well, while O'Brien clearly doesn't as revealed in the last chapters of the novel
