The English people who hate him are northerners who have completely different accents to those of us in the south, though it is still true that there are many different accents in the south, like the perfect R.P. ('posh`)sounding one, the Cornwall one, the general London one (which is similar to R.P but a bit less proper), the South London/`ghetto`/black people one and the East London `Cockney` one. This guy is SO not roosterney, he`s more well spoken Londonish.

Nobody mentioned the one where the American `bangs` is called a `fringe` over here. we only use the word bangs when we are talking about noises (or maybe when someone continually copulates)

'British`? Vs American slang? This guy needs to be shot. Appart from the 4 different geological areas of `Great Britain` (England, Scotland, Wales and NORTHERN Ireland), there are over 100 local dialects, each with their own slang (some such as Cumbrian Dialect are like a different language all together). Take heed people; when you`re talking about all 4 separate countries which make up Great Britian, by all means, call us British, but if not, refer to us as `English`, or `Scottish`, or `Welsh` or `NORTHERN Irish`. By doing this, you are less likely to piss alot of people off.

To the guy who used the "lady and the tramp" argument... that movie is like, 40 years old. It definitely doesn't mean that anymore here in america. It`s pretty much the equivalent of what happened to "gay". :[ Terms change over time. I definitely wouldn`t refer to a hobo as a tramp. o_O
