Which is the worst accent in Britain?

Recommended Posts

Which is the worst accent in Britain?... or even the UK for that matter.

 

I have just finished a phone conversation with someone from Bolton. Oh dear, it was pretty bad, but not as bad as the accent in Dudley.

 

Still you must have an accent that makes you cringe. Which is it?

I think the incredibly posh accent is difficult to listen to. Those that say 'het' instead of 'hat'. I can't take them seriously.

When I used to work in a call center I found Birmingham accents the worst (sorry!) but I had real difficulty with the accent.

Birmingham/West Midlands is by far the worst accent!

 

I'm not fond of it either, a lot of people hate liverpool accent but I quite like it :huh:

It does grate on me too but the most annoying accent that does grate on me is the Welsh, sorry to anyone who has a welsh accent but by eck I want to slap someone when I hear that accent...hearing that accent does bring out the hulk in me. I am also not keen on the Barrrrrrrrrnsley accent that just sounds :gag:

Scouse for me.

 

Although I can't understand most people who are from Newcastle and Scotland.

 

Which is difficult as the Inland Revenue have a lot of offices in Newcastle and Glasgow!
