  1. I said it last year and I’ll say it again…I really like Peaky Blinders and they must be paying an adviser about the Brummie accent so why can’t they get it right…? Brummies would NEVER say after with a soft ‘a’ (arfter) it’s always after with a hard ‘a’…and only poshuns would pronounce their g’s at the end of a word, e.g. goin’, leavin’ etc. and we would never say ‘something’ – it’s summat….and we’d never say isn’t it…it’s innit. And I haven’t heard any of them call anyone bab! At times I think they sound more Liverpudlian… (:o/
