Enid Blyton's life story

Banned by the BBC for almost 30 years, her writing continues to be labelled sexist and racist. And yet Enid Blyton is still regarded as one of the best known and loved children's authors of all time. This is her story.

    Sexist another new word. girls and boys are different . Now the girls think they are boys and the boys try to be whatever the girls say they are. A confused world

    It's a pity the BBC isn't one single entity, then it could be royally shagged with a ragman's trumpet!

    Why should the British taxpayers be compelled by law to support and sustain the BBC? It is an ultra left wing, utterly biased institution which should be made to support itself in the same way as other media channels. Profligate in the extreme. it has been allowed to grow unabated to the monstrous behemoth that it is today.

    Big question for BBC is why smother the truth about Jimmy saville? Why when important people like paul gambochini or esther rantzen knew what was going on didnt inform the police. But ban Johnny rotten because he knew and said it .

    She was easy to read when you first started reading. You went straight into whatever place she created. As her books came out I read them. And of course Sunny Stories. I loved Toyland.....still have it and one Sunny Stories.

    I loved Enid Blyton books...they were my escape during a sometimes wretched childhood. I completely adored Magic Faraway Tree,The Wishing Chair, Amelia Jane, Mister Meddle and Mr Pinkwhistle to name but a few. I have kept them all...
