How come UK 🇬🇧 English accents and phrases getting harder / farther to understand than North American accent?

Maybe Political correctness or immigrants change it?

Seriously, I am Canadian and I notice it’s harder each day to understand British show or interviews on TV.

UK 🇬🇧 accents / phrases/ idioms seems to be very confusing as each year go by...

May be BBC ( British Broadcasting Communism) ruins it🤪🤪🤪


I barely understand Boris Johnson  Covid 19 briefing. He gave me a headache just trying to understand.

Update 2:

No, I understand clearly when watching American or Canadian media. Even Australia media is easier on my ears.

Update 3:

I WONDER IF you Brits have a hard time understand US 🇺🇸 or Canada, or Australian English TV programs?

    Perhaps Alzheimer’s is chipping away at your language skills. 🤷‍♂️
