This is pretty much my accent except I have to talk better because the southerners don't understand me, except the cribs are from actual Wakefield and they all talk slower but thi is the closest to mine. I do not sound like I'm from Manchester like everyone here says.

my favorite are the northern ones. i didnt have the easiest time understanding them and even when i am up north i have to pay extra careful attention. last night i was watching Billy Elliot and thinking about northern accents. ill look for a clip of that movie. actual northerners should say whether is 'real' sounding or not.
in fact id say that when i hear more southern accents or a more posh english accent it makes me cringe a little. it makes me think of romantic comedies and hugh grant (and i only forgive him in Notthing Hill with that floppy hair).
