Yes, I remember that discussion here (and contributed to it!). To me Blyton was always so blatant about it (racism etc) whereas AR was reflecting the time he was writing in, my maternal grandmother always referred to anything dark brown coloured as 'nigger brown' (she was born in the 1890s) and I have an aunt in her late 90s who still uses the word 'queer' to mean 'odd' in the non-sexual sense. It is if the post WWII decades changes have passed her by!
