Mensagem: 

I remember once meeting a very posh English gentleman who was given to making disparaging comments about what have been referred to here by list luminaries as 'regional accents'.


When questioned about his own very distinctive 'plum-in-cheek' pronunciation, his reply was always:
 
"My dear friend, … the English DO NOT have an accent."
 
You're in fine company Dale!
