If I finish a sentence without rolling an R, I feel incomplete!! If you like Welsh accents, you'll love my manager's. And my friend Gareth takes aaaaaaaaages to finish a sentence because his accent is soooooooo Welshy! He seems to stress every syllable!
There's a weather girl for ITV who is Welsh speaking (her name's Sian Lloyd) but you'd never know because her English is perfect - not a drop of Welsh in it. And did you know that Huw Edwards was originally told to lose the accent when he first went into journalism?
A recent survey showed that the Welsh accent is the 2nd most hated accent in Britain after Birmingham. The problem is that Wales has many accents within it.
Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i´m gwlad Tra môr yn fur I'r bur hoff bau O bydded i´r heniaith barhau
I think that England is a bit scared of Wales. Why else would they go to such lengths to extinguish our culture and identity?
To be honest though, I have no idea why the Welsh accent is so disliked and it varies from region to region. I have a completely different accent from Pembrokeshire, Cardiff, Gwent or anywhere in the North.
