Accents

Here we go again!

The stereotypes of the brummie accent are being brought out once again. Not that I have a brummie accent having spent most of my life somewhere else, though I can say "roight" when I want to.

And the researchers apparently associate Birmingham with violence.  I always thought it was a city of hard working, friendly people who had a good sense of humor and looked down on anything from the Establishment.  But then I am probably a little biassed.
