Some people (naming no names, and I do mean, I'm not naming any names ;) ) might find this article interesting, especially in light of the recent discussion on pronunciation of 'r' sounds. It's mainly focused on British accents.

I especially like the truism included from George Bernard Shaw.
“As soon as an Englishman opens his mouth, he makes another Englishman despise him”.
