That Can't be right, Brummies have the ugliest accent in Britain....

According to a YouGov poll the beautiful Brummie accent is the least attractive of the 12 main accents of the British Isles.

A poll conducted by YouGov found that 67% of those surveyed thought the dialect of the West Midlands city was unattractive while just 14% deemed it attractive, giving it a net score of -52, 20 points below Scouse the second-lowest.

Received Pronunciation (RP) is regarded as the standard accent of Standard English in the United Kingdom
Seems Legit

Southern Irish is most attractive? Bleedin' Jaysus give me a break.

What in the heck is "received pronunciation"?

No Bristol cider drinking listed :) I'm happily in the 20% category.

I speak to lots of people across the UK as part of my job (I'm not a cold caller/telesales btw, just to avoid that one). What I like is when you get hybrid accents. My fave is Asian Glaswegians, nothing against the people themselves however good luck trying to hold a 2 minute conversation without saying "Sorry, what?" at least 6 times. Maybe they had an allergic reaction to deep-fried pizza.

hmm thought aberdeen was supposed to have best accent, seem to remember that from ages ago anyway?
i guess if you put the 12 most common then you wont get the best ... you'll just get the common.

I remember TV in the 70s when everyone spoke nicely with a correct middle English accent.

Then they went regional accent crazy for some reason to appease the minorities as always.

Everyone understands middle English (received pronunciation), not everyone can make sense of a Geordie or Scouser.

Makes sense to stick to middle English on TV and Radio, shame those days are gone.

'appease the minorities'

I think you mean majority, as the majority of people in the UK don't talk with a 'middle English' accent

An example of how you would like English to be spoken on TV and radio. There's nothing wrong with regional accents being broadcast. :)


Edit: Unless it's mine... Eurgh!! X)


Anyway, each to their own :)

Just to clarify, the Brummie accent is not the same as the West Brom, Black Country or Dudley accent as is often the case!

I'm sick and tired of people doing an impression of a Brummie accent by using the most ridiculous Black Country (and sometimes Scouse) accent, and then trying to tell us that we don't sound Brummie because we don't sound like their impression.
