As for the English accent, well we do have different ones, depends where you come from...I am from the middle of England, so Finy you may not like mine.
I think they are old unique, and I can speak 'old english', if I had too.
I like an educated Australian accent. Burt Newton's "accent" in very nice. Not saying I'm mad about Bert Newton, I just think that he has a lovely speaking voice. Spoken faster than English without the ums, errs, ones, etc., in short,without the ullshit.
