    I split my time between Liverpool and Cambridge, so half the time I'm surrounded by a load of scals with scouse accents, the other by loads of "posh" ones. I seem to have acquired a half mix of these. No matter how hard I try, scousers think I'm posh, and Cambridge peeps think I'm scouse. I'm not originally a scouser so thank god my accent is barely noticeable, but it's audible when I leave Liverpool. The problem of not being a scouser is that I can't get the scouse accent to sound right.

    Which accent should I go for? Which do you prefer?

    Probably Camb one, because it may help you with jobs. I ve heard there is still some discrimination, because of accent and originality, when applying for jobs.
