You're the one with the posh accent. I've spent too long in Essex, even when I try posh it slips like a tiara on a bald man's head.

I know a teacher who has the broadest Essex/cockney/docklands accent her Welsh pupils have real problems with thinking she's posh.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Well, even for my ears, when in Prague, you definitely had a refined, clear voice of a news commentator.

I said you have a BBC voice -- I know better than to mention accents to the British!

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
