the most "British" British English

My "accent" is Canadian, but if I were to choose my favourite variety of English speech it would be educated Dublin. Music to the ears, in my opinion.

Alicia: OK a challenge.....The BBC Radio 4 "Today" program is on each weekday morning between 06:00 and 09:00 GMT (This coming weekend we go one hour forward to BST - British Summer Time - hee hee! and it's still (BLEEP) cold... OK...all of Continental Western Europe apart from Ireland and Portugal (the same as us in the UK) is always one hour ahead of the UK. Eastern Europe (Finland, Greece, Romania and the Balkan countries) are two hours ahead of the UK.

Now Inspector Rebus is working things out: So when it's 15:30hrs with you that could mean you are anything between 7 and 9 hours ahead of us? eg 06:30hrs in UK is 15:30hrs in Japan! 07:30hrs UK is 15:30hrs is 15:30hrs in China? 08:30hrs in UK is 15:30hrs in Singapore?:

OK..I give up...where the heck are you, Alicia????

Hahaha, Damian, you missed a clue!!

"I listen to Mr Naughtie every day from about 7.30 GMT onward..." So yes, China, or more specifically, Hong Kong.

My accent is an undefinable mess. It's not pleasant, but a bit less grating than most locals' (I hope).

Damian, I would think you, of all people, would get a kick out of saying "James Naughty"!
