What’s the ugliest accent in the UK?

There are so many unpleasant dialects to choose from

The UK is a diverse place – and from the beaches of Kirkcaldy to the gardens of Kent, everyone has their own way of enunciating it.

The problem is, though, it often doesn’t sound very good. We’re a nation of people with ugly accents: whether you’re from Manchester or Belfast or London, you’ll never have the pleasant tones of a Spaniard or a Cypriot.

But there’s got to be an accent worse than yours – right? In the interests of fairness, we thought we’d put it to a vote. Choose wisely.
