English accents, yes, they suck.

Scottish accents are OK.

Irish accents (not UK, but still) are fun. Some accents are just fun; I dont know why.

English accents are either posh and appealing or massively annoying and often unintelligible, it really depends on the region, they are very different in annunciation. The Scots are a bit hard to understand as well but it doesn't sound bad.

The Irish one can be a bit much but their beautiful singing voices get some cred since I listen to a lot of music.

Posh and appealing is sexy.

England is king of mediocrity though.

Best thing to come out of that country is America and Oasis.

the ghetto uneducated hooligan type of blokes... yeah, they're hard to understand. they slur every word even when they are not drunk at the pub.

but a voice like david attenborough? could listen to him lecturing about planet earth all day.

and go youtube search "alan watts" - his voice is bliss.

I wonder if aussie counts. The part that's good about English is how they say phrase things. Always has me rolling.

Scots and Irish people are just cool in general. England seems like a big joke fantasy place where like scot n Ireland are like misty hilly places with big stone castles. Dudes running up them with broadswords n shit.

Aussies are just awesome. They get a bad rep as being unsavory people but Ive respected their candid honesty. Aussie is like the UK pirates.
