    I will, if it’s within my power, point you in their direction.

    Yeah, and I guess the whole idea of RP (or whatever you want to call it) is that it's a non-regional accent. Although arguably it's an accent associated with the south of England.

    Flippancy aside, what’s the root of the tendency for people with RP accents to believe they don’t have an accent? The BBC?

    With me it’s just my solipsistic only-child syndrome, but there must be other reasons.

    I speak with an Esperanto accent so assume everyone can understand me perfectly.

    I live in a region: Daily life is a confusing cacophony of slurring and twanging. I can’t imagine how frustrating it must be to talk that way as well as having to hear it all the time.

    I just speak normally - when I speak, in my head it just sounds normal and not at all what it sounds like when, for instance, someone from Wales speaks.

    First whizz round on this thing. Felt a bit odd at first - flat bars on road bike geometry - but it’s quite fun and nippy as a result. The little flash of colour in my lower field of vision raises a smile too.

    You can just about see the weird green/grey of the levers in that (awful) photo. I’m pretty sure I can live with it though as they’re actually quite nice feeling levers.
