An unfortunate accent...
« on: October 17, 2018, 09:02:48 AM »
...the Northern Irish one that is.

Got the tellybox on and they're discussing the Brexit problem with the land border with Ireland.

Having grown up in the latter half of the 20th century hearing this accent reminds me of the bigoted, intransigent attitude opinions heard during the Troubles.

I find it hard to take anything said seriously or valid.
