His typically British accent is kind of sexy!

Yep, Drum or Sleepy come to mind - I'd kill for such impeccable accents!

Splendid, marvellous, even spiffing, so to say :wink: !

It's either Drum or Sleepy - a pair of quintessentially British voices if ever there was. I too love hearing their voices - delightful on the ear!

I speak tainted Joisey.

Tainted Joisey = grew up in central NJ where people don't have a north or south Jersey accent, but do have a hint of "something jersey" going on. Then put that person in Texas for 20 years. That's me.

Oh......I'd hate it if someone mocked my cockney! :D

It was the worse cockney accent EVER. Very talented man , but .....

I think as a Londoner with a real Cockney wife (born within the sound of bow bells) I am allowed ...

Bit like Mel Gibson as a Scot !!! But as he hates the English suppose he was half there :lol:

I took an instant dislike to Braveheart - all that nonsensical, pseudo-romantic nonsense and men with wind in their hair. Patriot sealed Gibson up as a choob with a massive anti-English chip on his shoulder.

How did Ben Elton put it? "The Australians should be good - hand picked by British judges after all..."

:D

Interesting......from a pure entertainment perspective, Braveheart and The Patriot are two of my favorite Mel Gibson movies.

Lys- your comment stimulated a rare thought in my cranium. The thought is related to history and how it is spun depending on country of origin.

When American children study the Revolutionary War in history class, the British are depicted as tyrannical, arrogant and generally unpleasant. The Americans are depicted as patriotic.

How is this spun in British classrooms? Are the Americans depicted as rebellious, uneducated and barbaric?

Makes me wonder how America will spin the war in Iraq in textbooks circa 2090. How will that story be told in Iraq and in other countries?

Makes me wonder......

I don't think any amount of future polishing and revisionism of the story of this decade will put our little emperor in new clothes. :cussing: :cwm10: :cwm21: :cwm10: :cussing: :hmph: :pain10: :puke: :cwm10: :evil: :roll: :banghead: :confused1: :sad2: :sad1:

Well, I can't speak for English classrooms because Scotland has an independent education and legal system. The only times I recall Britishness being discussed at school was with regard to the WWI & WWII.

We did get taught a certain amount of mythical pish about Scotland being ravaged by the English - the truth is nearer to the tale of all man-kind in that the royalty/nobility of England and Scotland often co-operated to secure control of land, money and power.

Not much has changed in centuries :roll:

For example, the Highland clearances are stereotypically accepted as an English savagery - the unwelcome truth reveals that most of it was controlled, dictated and executed by Scots nobility against other, less powerful Scots. Often enough Scottish Lairds would employ English armies to do their dirty work - but not as often as they would employ Scots from the central belt who took much glee in killing Highlanders who were widely regarded as wild, unreformed savages. Which is a fair assessment anyway - the Highland clans spent a lot of time killing each other for cattle, land or petty, historical rivalries :?

Maybe the Campbells and MacDonalds being the most obvious example of all.

I'd say Americans are generally (and highly) regarded as the good-guys in Scotland. I'm not sure how the English view you as a nation.

I'm convinced that nearly everyone in Europe partially regards America as an evolution of our history; in that American custom and culture is so influenced by those who left Europe to build a new life there.
