London, September 25 (ANI): The Queen’’s English has topped a new poll of ”Britain’’s Coolest Accent”.

According to the survey conducted by ”Coolbrands”, 20 per cent of the 2,000 people questioned preferred the Queen’’s English while only 2 percent voted for the Brummie accent.
Given the wide regional accents, the Scots came second with 12 per cent backing the ”cool” accent title followed by Georgie with 9 per cent and Yorkshire with 7 per cent of the entire votes.
Rocker Ozzy Osbourne is amongst many Brummies who are disliked for their ”uncool” nasal tone of voice.
“We did not set this survey to be cruel to the people of Birmingham,” Telegraph quoted Stephen Cheliotis, the Chief Executive of the Centre for Brand Analysis and chairman of Coolbrands Council as saying. “But the British public still clearly have a negative perception of the Brummie accent,” he added.
