How common is received pronunciation? According to one source a third of the English speak it, but another says the figure is only 6%. It's probably a smaller number than that, I'd guess, given the habit of public school children to 'dumb down' their accents, and the Queen's 'shocking' laziness.
There must be more people speaking Brummie - Brummie for RP!
