The great Chris Mason (t/m Andrew Marr) responds:
Alex Balfour: Have you watched the BBC recently? It’s almost as if RP is no longer allowed. Great to have nice regional accents but then you get Chris Mason who sounds like a train conductor, Beth Rigby who turns ‘ings’ into ‘in’s’ and Steph McGovern who makes the Tetley ads sound highbrow!Chris Mason: Mercifully, the word ‘eejit’ means the same how ever you say it.
He'd better not listen to the continuity announcers on all main TV Channels and if he thinks Chris Mason sounds like a train conductor, I hope for the sake of his health he doesn't have to listen to the Labour Party spokeswomen Long-Bailey, Pidcock and co.ReplyDelete
