Some public speaking expert at the University of Victoria has now suggested that the Australian accent first came about not only due to a mixture of Brits, Irish & Aboriginals living together in the heat, but mostly due to be drunk all of the time. Its fair to say that there was plenty of ‘grog’ in Sydney Cove during the early days and so who knows there could be some truth to the matter.

Only two thirds of linguistic muscles in the mouth are used by the average Aussie apparently, says alot, or rather not. 🙂

If you ever pine for hearing more Pommy accents using 100% of those linguistic muscles then get a Pommy TV account and start watching all of those UK TV channels like BBC One from back home in Australia.


RECOMMENDED: If you need a VPN that will unblock BBC iPlayer and other UK TV apps, then we recommend Privatrax. This is one of the few VPN providers that unblocks BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 and My5 (as most are now blocked) If you use coupon POMMYTV then you can pay £29.99 for a year instead of £49.99. That works out to just £2.49 / $2.99 per month. When you consider that Nord VPN and Express VPN work out at £9/£12 pr month, this works out a lot better.
