    "Scotch mist". I love how it's so poetic, which makes for a nice contrast, because I only say it to be sarcastic.

    Putting "-ers" at the end of words. "Let's have a spot of brekkers (breakfast)," etc..

    "Gordon Bennett."

    there was the van wiv me old maaaaahn inneet.

    it's funny I could listen to danny dyer's accent all day long, and the fact that he's known as dvd danny makes me like his movies even more. Do you like Mickey Flannagan? I kill myself at him, he's not even that funny, I just start laughing when I hear how he talks, and the phrases he comes out with

    I also love it when albert Steptoe says 'oh gawd'

    one of the things I hate is the Australian/U.S way of talking now, which essentially turns a reply into an enquiring question

    'so I went out' ?

    'and I saw them' ?

    spoken with an enquiring affliction

    They both say it to be fair, but albert says in in a better old style cockney way, plus it's funnier when he says it

    Well, most of the "slang" I know is American Carny slang which I seriously doubt anyone here has heard or understand but here goes :

    "Peeked his poke" = Saw how much cash was in a Marks wallet

    "Went to the Donniker" = Used a portable restroom
    and there's many many more.
