    Are you having a laugh?
    You are the reason I thought of this. I saw your baiting out a sket video and some others and remember what I hated about London.

    I'm from London and speak with an RP accent. London is a mixture of many different accents and so your thread makes little sense.

    Like someone from say Liverpool has a strong accent, too. But that sounds more like a "normal" accent.

    I'm disappointed in anyone who didn't spot this obvious bait.

    The London accent is the best in the UK. Irish and Welsh accents are pretty cool too.

    But Scouse accents must genuinely be the worst in the country. Sometimes it's so bad my mum needs subtitles while watching those sky sports analysts.

    I secretly don't like the chav-ish London accent either, even though I can't help having one.

    I really love accents like Tom Hiddleston's and Keira Knightley's and Peter Capaldi's when it comes to British accents.

    I think there are more attractive accents out there than MLE and Cockney, but Cockney is iconic.

    What's that got to do with accents though? If anything, the London accent is the standard in the UK; closest to the Queen's English, and the most coherent, I'm not putting down other accents, but you must be joking if you think London accents are abnormal

    They're nice and easy to understand as long as they're not extremely thick. They don't sound like they're forcing themselves to be camp. They don't sound stuck up. They don't sound like they've chewed on marbles. And all the foreign people I know always list those among their favourite accents from the UK.

    I find some Welsh voices soft and soothing, but the Irish one I just don't get. I think it's an Anglo-sphere thing to circlejerk over the Irish accent since people who speak English as their first language are pretty bad when it comes to learning actual foreign languages, so the most exotic thing they're exposed to is the Irish accent.


    To me, Irish accents just sound like slightly more musical ''scouse'' accents, you can hear a definite relationship between the two. I mean Jimmy Cricket is hardly a sex symbol.

    I love the cockney, East-London-ish accent, but not the rest. I bloody hate that chavvy accent people in the South talk with (I am from the South).
    How do people in south london talk? I was never really aware of a difference...

    With that London accent, I just can't help but feel that it sounds like trash. Like you are from the ghetto. Ugh. It hurts my ears.

    Anyone else?

    I have a pretty posh 'normal' accent and a few 'chav' londoners said I sounded funny.
