My Nephew moved from South Wales to South Africa WAY back in 1992, and I can hardly understand a word he says nowdays, especially on the phone. In person I KNOW its him, but on the phone it could be anybody out there. Very weird I can tell you !!!!.....

Interesting. There was a discussion on R4's PM midweek about Kate Winslett not being working class because of her accent.

I knew a girl from near Reading that while not well do spoke really nicely. She was well spoken. It was nice. :)

Wow, this brings back memories. We had a discussion about this back when I first met up with AO chaps. I tried to find the thread, but it was on the OLD AO site I think.
Anyway, the conclusion I believe was that Bobda was a Scouse rouge, AJCarter a cockney wideboy, RicksAlfas a Yorkshire mining type, and I spoke a beautifully lilting Queen's English :D
