Class and upbringing have alot to do with english accents....To the working class Michael Palin sounds posh....but in a nice way...not in a patronising way like Maggie Thatcher.

The Geordie accent (spoken by some people who come from Newcastle in the UK) is very.....erm...individual.About becomes aboot and right becomes reet.Then there's cockney slang which is a law unto itself.

I know I'm from England...and I wouldn't say he has a Yorkshire accent...not a strong one anyway.The character of Herbert's father in Holy Grail...now that's a Yorkshire accent.

I'd say he has a standard 'Oxford English' accent, with a hint of Yorkshire - although his native accent might be a bit stronger now. On British TV and radio at the time of Python, the Oxford English or 'received pronunciation' accent was the way everyone was supposed to speak; the Pythons also went through Oxbridge, where maybe there was even more pressure to 'ditch the accent'.

It's the same with Eric Idle, who again generally sounds RP with a touch of a Brummie/Midlands accent.
