We’re sounding like a long playing record stuck in a groove – look at the comments below on the failure to commemorate Enid Blyton – these comments received hundreds of green arrows so perhaps that might tell politicians and civic “leaders” something, no?
Good grief! Do they have nothing better to do than to dig up dirt where there is no dirt. These books were written at a time when things were different. Why does it all have to be changed to todays standard. What about historical values. You cannot change literature from decades ago just for tthe sake of a few deprived idiots.

After reading up on this horrific woman I believe all her werks should be banned now! They are racist! ANd porttray a view of England that is not now. We are mulitycultural now and mainly city’s. These books are for the past. Get rid of them before young racial children might read them! – Bob, UK, United Kingdom
- Maybe you should try READING books, might help you learn spelling and grammar!!! Half of what you have written makes no sense and the message behind it is based on over-the-top ignorance. Children have no clue of racism except for what their environment teaches them. I read these books and so have my kids. We are a multicultural family of 3 ethnic groups and we have NEVER been offended by them.

The amazing thing is that 9,999 times out of 10,000 it is some stupid pc fool who raises these issues. Has anyone ever heard of an ethnic minority who was offended by Enid Blyton?

Sounding repetitive? If all of us can wake up to what is needed and what is not – why can’t these idiots in charge?
