Alright i know i am a teeny bit but i cant bear the accent from down south.
I hate all that cockney geezer talk and yet they mock northern accents

Thats southerners for you

Maisiethemorningsidecat Sat 11-Dec-10 19:38:17

Any particular bit of 'down south' or is it the cockney accent which offends you most?

geraldinetheluckygoat Sat 11-Dec-10 19:39:04

each to their own, innit? grin
fwiw, my dh is simmilarly irrational about northern accents.

The Southern accent? Which of the many Southern accents are you referring to?

My first ever biscuit

Innit, though

shandy - I think we need to bring out a chip - to adorn the shoulder, rather than a biscuit but in keeping with the food line of emoticons.

You should all learn to talk properly. A Northern accent just sounds, well, wrong.

But then if you only have to talk to pigeons and whippets then I don't suppose it matters much. grin

Well I think mine is really rather marvellous

Arse'oles to ya

What a facking liberty hmm

Go grin

ifancyashandy Sat 11-Dec-10 19:42:21

Indeed! With attitudes such as this, no wonder it's grim oooop north! grin

Whatevs <best Essex accent>

nellieisstilltired Sat 11-Dec-10 19:44:13

yanbu, and why do people think a southern accent is intelligible. Bil is from Essex, I cannot for the life of me, understand a word he says.
Although that is something of a bonus grin.

I'm not keen on the sarf London accent, being a northerner myself...that's north London (am vay posh).

Dh has a gorgeous northern accent and he loves my RP.

If its that grim up North why are so many Southerners moving up ere?

In my NCT coffee group out of 11 regulars only 3 are from the north. The rest are southerners

'Cos it's cheap as chips up there

PressureDrop Sat 11-Dec-10 19:48:18

How can you hate an accent? How awfully snotty.

Desiderata Sat 11-Dec-10 19:48:22

It's cheap as chips for a reason.

OneTwoBaubleMySanta Sat 11-Dec-10 19:48:32

Ha! Cockney, how very dare you, I am southern and have RP thank you very much!

SerendipitousHarlot Sat 11-Dec-10 19:48:35

And it makes us feel superior.

ifancyashandy Sat 11-Dec-10 19:53:32

To get away from all the Northerners who've moved darn sarf innit.
