Peaky Blinders may have gone some way towards helping the magical Birmingham accent out of the pit of scorn it's been abandoned in for decades, but many Brits still confidently pick it as their least favourite, without necessarily knowing why. WE know why, though, thanks to the extremely well informed and universally respected linguist David Crystal. We saved this little bit back from the RP episode he featured in, because it truly deserved its own bit of the limelight. Three cheers for all accents!
