You should watch The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie then.. " Girls, 6 inches is more than sufficient. Anything more is just Vulgar ". (Referring to how much a window should be open and not what you were all thinking :-).

I like a Scottish accent the most I think and find a southern English accent on a lady to be quite sexy (probably some internalised colonial inferiority thing )

Dislike the Welsh and Liverpool accent, while I find the West Country accent pretty amusing I reckon it'd begin to annoy me after a while.

The 'innit bruv' one. Though since Brexit I think of them all as speaking like this.

A posh Scottish one is like nails down a blackboard too, but that's mainly because the owner of the accent is 99.99% nailed on to be a humongous twat.

It's a great accent. Looking forward to visiting there again this year after a couple of years of missing it.

Welsh accent and a West country accent.

Anything north of Birmingham sounds like a inbreeding accident.

Always weird to hear the late Colin Pillinger talking space science in that accent.

Queens Scottish its sometimes called. I find valleys Welsh the most annoying after Glaswegian.
Inverness is a the nicest Scottish accent.

Any Northern Ireland accent. Painful. And no matter what they're saying, they have to say "communiddy and sitchyation"
