This is my recording of Who would you like as a neighbour?
I'm afraid that my britain accent is not too good, but, I did my best. Thank you!
Who would you like as a neighbour?A resent opinion poll asked 1,000 people in Britain this question. The surprise winner of the poll was Alan Titchmarsh a gardening expert on BBC TV with 29% of the votes. The British are very interesting in gardening and Titchmarsh is very popular. He is the best selling writer and a famous TV face. He is even in Madame Tussaud’s. To find out more about him we spoke to some of Mr. Titchmarsh’s neighbours. We did not learn very much. “He’s a very quiet man and we don’t see him much”, said one neighbor. “We don’t ask him for help with our gardens” said another. “He’s a very busy man”.Titchmarsh, a very private man, lives in an eighteenth-century farmhouse in a small village in the south of England. Like many people, he likes quiet neighbours and he is happy where he lives. The top woman in the poll was the Australian pop singer Kaley Minogue 85% of her votes were men, Ms. Minougue lives in fashionable Chelsea in the west of London. Her neighbours include her sister Dannii, pop stars Madonna and Bob Geldof, supermodel Liz Hurley, Sean Connery and Fomula one King Bernie Ecclestone. It is an excellent place for star-spotters and Kaley Minogue fans. The British like gardening and attractive Australian pop singers, but, it seems, they do not want to live next door to their prime minister. He got only 3% of the votes in the poll. Is this because people do not want to live in Downing Street? Or is it because they do not like the prime minister?
