Now hear this!

Sean Connery has the world's sexiest male voice. This is no surprise given that Sir Sean was born a few hundred yards from the Freedom and Whisky bloghouse. But I think that the Scotsman's editor must have still been in post-new year recovery mode by allowing this through:
The top regional accents voted for were Irish, followed by Scottish, then Geordie with the West Midlands, Birmingham and Liverpudlian accents voted as the least favourite.
Irish accents haven't been "regional" for eighty-odd years. Worse, everyone north of the border, unionist and nationalist alike, sees Scotland as a nation, rightly or wrongly within a United Kingdom. "Regional" accents! I can see the protest letters on their way.
