You're joking right? People with London and South East accents get bashed all the time for being 'common'. It seems all regional accents are fine except for London ones in many peoples eyes. Especially when anyone from Brighton up to Milton Keynes is called a 'cockney' as an insult
I'm guilty of this, there's a couple I know that moved from Brighton to be near their Grandchildren, the husband has a strong accent, I assumed he was a Londoner but he was born in Brighton. I've also met people from Harrow that had no strong accent, I assumed everyone from London sounded more or less the same
