But that's exactly my point, which Brits exactly?
Even in Elizabethan England some areas of the country had a hard R, others didn't. The same remains true to this day, if you think the UK has no rhotic accents then you've obviously never heard someone from the South West, Ireland, or Scotland speak.
I didn't say UKdians, I said Brits. You know, the English. You're reaching.
If you've only ever listened to BBC presenters or the Queen speak then you can be forgiven for thinking there are no English accents in the UK that don't pronounce there Rs but that's not representative of even close to the whole population, and that's exactly my point.
Again, the almighty says stop changing the subject and answer the fookin' question
