It is the voice. Only the English speak properly, and not many of them at that.
Some Scottish accents can be tolerated.
It is the music of repression. The perfect (female) example is not Diana Rigg, but Joanna Lumley. In comparison Rula Lenska is a poor impersonation. For male voices, think Prince Charles or Brian Sewell.
And repression is the pressure cooker of sex.
The different repressions of Ireland, Italy, America - simply do not carry the tune.
