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

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?

London is a mixture of diverse people and there is no London accent, just depends on how you've been brought up, there are many broad accents in the area anyways. I say milk as miwk lol.

I swear accents that belong to people outside of London are mostly inaudible on TV interviews and stuff LOL.

When you live in London you can't really tell what a London accent is 😅 unless they're from up north 👍

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).

Maybe normal wasn't the wrong word. Like Bavarian in German, it's terrible to understand, but it just sounds like well that's how they talk.

What I mean is, while it's relatively easy to understand as far as accents go, it just sounds like the person talking is mentally challenged.

I quite like the London accent. Then, there's a lot of cockney where I'm from, so I'm used to it.

I don't like the chav speak of course, just as that was mentioned, but you can have the accent without being chavy. That said, I think anyone that grows up in the area learns to imitate the chav crap. It helps you not get beaten up in dodgy situations lol. It's all ****ing posturing.

I'm from south-west London and I like my accent

I'm not a big fan of northern accents though.
