It's hard to explain. If you're talking about a person it means they're rich and upper/middle-class, or that they act like they are. If you're talking about a house or an object it just means fancy or expensive.

It's well spoken, but sometimes vowels are elongated, ie 'daaarling', 'laaaah-vley' (lovely), 'oh you knoooow'.

The Queen is posh, so are some BBC news presenters, for example. However, rich people aren't necessarily posh, and poor people can also be posh.

Now, yes.

Although if an item is 'posh' it's usually expensive looking, or elegant.

Lol, no, 'scouse', or 'scouser' is someone who is from Liverpool or their accent.

"Scouse: a stew of meat and vegetables and hardtack that is eaten by sailors."

So a stew of meat and vegetables is homeless and drunk?

the "scouse" people... horrible accent, I can't understand a word. Black swetpants and 3L bottle of cider. You can see "them" every where around city centre. Usually they want some coins or cigaret.

You could always leave if you hate them so much.
