I think accents are important, the old idea was that we all went about saying things like: "old bean", "don'tcha know" & "oh, I say! that was nobilityspeak in the 20's & 30's, equally so we don't say "what'cher me old cock sparrer, in the in London's east end, me?, I live on the Isle of Wight now, but was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire, & Americans have said I sounded like a cockney, naah, nuffin like it guv!, wot a bl**din' insult, wanna buncha fives??? [translations given on request] lol.
lol, when english people switch on their colloquial phrases its impossible for a foriegner to understand them.
