i know there's a variety of accents within all the above countries but it's hard to be too specific.

and no singlish doesn't count.

Lack of choice forces me towards New Zealand. But idealy i'd go for a Northern England, or some Scotish accents.
Basicly any English accent where people actualy bother to pronounce the 'r' is in.

What type of Indian?
Those smooth and sexy Punjabi ones, or the more sing-song and occasionaly annoying stereotyped one?

I voted for northern US because I love the Lake accent used by girls from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Chicago.......actually not so much Chicago but definetally the other two.

Also I like the smooth Punjabi accent.

And for humour you have to go with the Jamaican accent.

The stereotype ones.  They're music to my ears.

lol I voted for Koooo-noooo-dooooo because no one else did, although to me Candians have the least accent of anyone on the planet!

Unfortunately, the one I like the most, Irish, is lacking among the poll's choices.

scottish at times is the hardest to understand, they jumble their words together. A translator would be nice when listening to Colin McRae.

I voted for southern because i have to support but honestly, the english speak their stuff the best.
evidently the ladies in London fancy New York accents,no?

The scottish accent is the best, despite being hard to figure out what they're actually saying at times. It's the coolest! No doubt about it.

But for basic standard communication, I'd say BBC english or CNN english are perfectly ok and understandable for everyone.

Southern accent sounds like a bunch of hill folks if i might say. I think the British accent sounds professional, but i'm going with the good ol' northern accent.
Heaven helps those, who help themselves.

Usually when they have one of those polls...'Which Europeans have the sexiest accent'? The Scots and Irish seem to either win or do pretty well for some reason that escapes me...
Maybe people find it sexy when they can't understand what the other person is saying but know the other person can understand them...or something ?  Confused 

My vote goes to the Geordies (Newcastle, England) based on the irrational logic just given ????

England alone has a wide range of accents including the London Cockney, stuck-up Queen's English, Manc, Brummie, Scouser, Farmer Giles West Country, and musical-sounding Welsh accent

My suggestion is those from Dundee in Scotland, the home town of Brian Cox the Scottish actor.
