October / November 2000
Reuters recently reported that Irish accents are considered the sexiest in the British Isles, closely followed by Scottish, according to a survey reported by the Daily Express. “Queen’s English” only came in third.
The survey was carried out by the Alliance and Leicester mortgage bank. “One third of people now prefer to deal with their bank on the telephone, so we wanted to find out which voice they would like to hear,” a spokeswoman for Alliance and Leicester told the Daily Express. ♦
