Well, 'all' was an exaggeration. A ton of people thought they could do a great american accent by pronouncing 'a's differently and getting really nasal. It was... strange.

As for upper class or cockney, well, fair enough, that's the common US perception I suppose. To be fair, it seems a bit unreasonable to cram so many accents into such a small country.

The Midlands confuses me. Should I be calling you a southern fairy, or a northern monkey?
