Blight Already

I've seen conflicting reports on the web as to whether to put blighted plants and fruit on the compost. What's the the panel say?
I'm not aging, I just need re-potting.

I always do as I understood that the spores only survived on living plants.
I had really bad blight in the first year in a garden that had been a field for ever previously, and the nearest garden growing toms or spuds was a few hundred metres away. All plants were home grown so the blight must have blown in from some distance!
Composting infected plants doesn't seem to have made it worse; I lay the blame firmly on the weather!!
Has Anyone Seen the Plot?

I've always understood that blight only survives on liveing plants. I've been composting them for a few years - doesn't seem to have had an impact here.
