LMAO...you only get subtitles for the Scouser mindue, Kelly has an extremely strong liverpudlian accent, I'm used to it now that I'm visiting Liverpool so often, they all speak like that there

its half way to a welsh accent...but dont tell them that

Is welsh like Scottish? I noticed he didn't pronounce his "h" in "hungrier".

I'm looking forward to this TUF since it's pitting the Brits against the Americans. I guess they are all British.

Well, Welsh is quite tonal, and Scottish is more abrupt, more like a brogue, more like Irish. Welsh accents tend to RISE in pitch on the last sylable of words and phrases...

Liverpool isnt too far from Wales, its the bit of coast just north of where the top of wales joins England...and yes, they could potentially have fighters from Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, and still count them as "British"

I have visited each country in the UK as well as Ireland and I recall the Welsh in particular being pretty adamant about expressing their discontent with being called British, even more so than when the Republic of Ireland is referred to as part of Britain.

The Republic of Eire ISNT British.

Wales is..."adament about expressing their discontent" with about everything...that'll be the Welsh

We used to have a Welsh Tutor who liked to say "dont smile at me, I'm not in the mood"

Great Britian = England, Wales, Scotland
United Kingom = Britian Plus Ulster

The Welsh is rulled by Westminster in conjunction with something called "The Welsh Assembly" They do have their own National Anthem, not that they ever use it, and their Branch of Anglicanism, is "The Church of Wales"

The Present Archbishop of Canterbury...he came from The Church of Wales

not that they ever use it????

clearly you pay no attention to anything that is actually welsh, like the football team and the rugby team, they sing the welsh anthem. So think you will find it is used almost as much as God save the queen dave

Why would I pay any attention to wales?

I mean ive been through it to get to Eire, and I went many years ago for a month to....I have no idea how you spell it...but phonetically it sounds like a-ber-rist-with on the coast

I dont follow Football, or rugby

Most people dont know that wales even HAS a National Anthem

I know this, I was saying that the Welsh dislike being called British even more than the Republic of Ireland does. I went to a restaurant in Betws y Coed and all the servers had "WELSH NOT BRITISH" on the back of their shirts. But Christian Bale is a bamf.
