Have just been listening to the newspaper review on Broadcasting House and they mentioned this Sunday Times story. Basically, Enid Blyton's biographer has said the publishers are bowing to political correctness and sanitising Blyton's work. Among other thing that have been changed, the characters Fanny and Dick from the Far Away Tree stories have been renamed Frannie and Rick.
I can't help but wonder if the Daily Mail will pick up on this and scream about "political correctness gone mad" whilst simultaneously moaning about the moral filthiness of Jonathan Ross saying "wank" and "Thatcher" in the same sentence. Or am I just a cynic?
