Are We Becoming More Extremist? Kitchen Table 7


  1. It would help if people were to learn sufficient patience to listen carefully

    This video’s speaker needs some tuition on pitch and speed of delivery , leaving aside the fact that his Aussie accent is located in a kind of sub – tropical Essex.

    The “easiest – on – the – ear” Antipodean accent on TV is that of Roger Maynard , probably deemed to posh for an Aussie channel nowadays but highly regarded by his present employer, Channel News Asia.

    Also the speaker’s beard reminds me of the Edward Lear poem :

    There was an Old Man with a beard ,
    Who said , ” It is just as I feared ! –
    Two Owls and a Hen , four Larks and a Wren,
    Have all made their nests in my beard.”

    But then I am a deeply shallow person.

  2. Alastair, when you judge that Roger Maynard’s ‘accent’ could be ‘deemed to[o] posh for an Aussie channel nowadays’ you may be right — after all his speech variety is not ‘Antipodean’!
