Would have to say scouse is up there for me, dreadful dreadful noise. Also despise cockney accent, in fact think that's worth than south. And then just that annoying posh, public schoolboy english accent not sure if thats a specific place - Kent or something maybe? Anyway it's fucking awful.
Cockney accents on women don't go down well, in blokes it's okay as it's rough (i.e. not a polished accent).

Public schoolboys come from all over the place, mainly down South, London, Home counties etc. Just google any relatively prominent Conservative politician and find out where they're from. They'll tick the posh public schoolboy thing. It's really strange how being a posh public schoolboy/privately educated individual varies inversely with brains. Some of them don't have the brains they were born with (see the state of Covid in the UK for starters and how they fucked that up). I'm not saying it's like this across the board, but these days, especially in government and politics, it's very prevalent.

What did Dostoevsky say "Give man his utopia etc and he'll destroy it with a grin" (paraphrase). I'm not saying we had Utopia before the current Tory government, but they're doing a good amount of wrecking ball action on what little we have.

I quite like Indian/Pakistani accents (obviously when they speak in English).

What accent is the worst on any person on earth is a white fella trying desperately to be black, calling his white mates 'Nigga'. Same too with girls "Yeah, Sista" she says, driving through Rotherham in a Vauxhall Nova.

probably this although dudes like @attaboi may beg to differ
You know you're too stupid to troll right?

Your sorry attempts at comebacks keeps falling flat.

You're way over you head little buddy.

What you're doing is like comparing a Japanese to Vietnamese.

Click consonant based languages are peculiar to Southern Africa.

Pick up a map and see were Nigeria is located. I'm pretty sure is not in Southern Africa.

Can't stand her and her accent

Don't know much about her as a person, but I think she is a fantastic actress.

Atonement and Brooklyn are great movies, and she is great in them. She also has 5 or 6 other films that are really good.

Irish girls names can be mental though. Some of the spelling is like wtf. (Aoife, meadhbh, caoimhe, grainne, etc.)

I honestly love the names. They have something magical/fairy tail-ish about them.
Was once contacted by a recruiter called Siobhan. I thought she was Indian until we spoke on the phone. I was stunned and amazed that her name was actually pronounced Shiv-on.

That's a fairly common name in Ireland and Scotland. I've a lot of Irish family, so I like the names too, I just find them funny.

I don't mind Welsh some of the time, til you get the up themselves nationalist types who then start talking in that silly made up language they invented recently.

The Irish language has totally different rules to English, and developed totally differently so when you import Irish words to modern Latin script you end up with the names as they are. Siobhan is very common and an incredibly easy name, you wanna try something like Dearbhfhorghaill.
