Posh talk in the Vic

Sir: Beryl Bainbridge is entitled to her opinion on the Liverpool accent (report, 3 March) but, according to your Quote of the Day, having heard that she has won the WH Smith Literary Award, she says: "I will have to go home for a lie down, then I'll watch EastEnders." Presumably those "dahn sahf" have clearer diction?
