With a little elk from Southend

Once again I am obliged to Gwendomama for this link. I can't embed it, so you will have to go and have a look.

Mr Cocker comes from Sheffield. He speaks English in the way that God intended - I have no trouble understanding him.

Richard. Please. Not in the library.
ILTV. What did you not understand? Perhaps I can help (then you might get by).
Ian. Oh good - how I wish I could hear it. I can do the dance. At least I could when I was 6 stone lighter and 25 years younger.

Joe's thick Cocker-ney accent renders him virtually unintelligible on this side of the pond...
but his gig sure beat his old job drivin' a lorry eh?

Donn. Not all regional accents in England are "cockney". In fact, cockney has virtually disappeared, the majority of the cockney speaking population having been absorbed into a gunge of unintelligible nonsense that consists of having no consonants and lots of strangled vowels.
Mr Cocker comes from the North of England, where speech is clear.
