I like British accents. It reminds me of The Beatles, Harry Potter, James Bond, Doctor Who, etc. It just sounds cool. I wish I had it.
It depends on the accent.
As George Bernard Shaw wrote: â€œIt is impossible for an Englishman to open his mouth without making some other Englishman hate or despise him.â€
With an English public school accent, one commands respect and natural authority from all sections of society, whereas, with say a Liverpool or Newcastle accent, that unfortunately is taken as one who is uneducated and very much working class.
