Just shows how innocent we are when we are young. I probably read all of her books during my childhood and, now, can't remember a single thing that could be used against her. Unless, that is, you think that a love of reading and books would do it?

Much of our childhood characters are now PC frowned upon. Humour must not be aimed at any part of society now. Whats left?

Dreadful woman. Her books were rabbitist.

Mr McGregor would certainly have had homophobic views. These books were filth.


Or else they were a source or great entertainment to millions of us when we were children. Fondly remembered. They would have been of their time, families didn't have two daddies or two mummies back then not least because it was illegal.

Now let me see, filth or wonderful entertainment? That's easy I think.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I reread some a few years ago, crap, but great when I was a kid, I'm sure most people learned to read better with her books.


The should release the coin, too much PC IMHO.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

i had a golly when i was small and did not even think the other part of the name would be offensive in later years

loads of colored kids had them as well

just like some of them old children's songs and those people on Sunday night at the London Palladium with white gloves and a smile


just looking forward to getting this year over with and hopefully a peaceful and no worry 2020

OK guys: hands up time! How many of those responding so far are black/coloured?

If YOU aren't, there's every chance you would not be personally offended by some of the things mentioned as "acceptable" at the time.

Lets try a different topic: how many of you get offended when councils place bans on MH parking? Or carparks are fitted with height barriers to keep us out?
Do you think of those things as unreasonable discrimination?
The majority of car owners would probably regard them as "acceptable".
