    I really don't know why Apple have replaced the UK male Siri voice.

    This new voice sounds like, well, a whimp. Sounds like he was bullied at school, rushes his words and seems nervous lol.

    Now the old voice was great, a bit Cary Grant, but my wife used to love it LOL couldn't they have at least left the old voice in and made it an option.

    He's a bit too well spoken. Try the new UK female voice.

    I use the female voice, it's okay...it's just an interface after all.

    I would like Vicky Pollard's voice.....

    When Siri is taking taking time to think of a reply, she can just go, 'yea but, no but, yea but....'
