We don't know if Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard was impressed by David Cameron's impersonation of her accent at the Lord Mayor's Banquet - but her fellow Aussies certainly weren't.
The prime minister, speaking about chairing a meeting with Commonwealth countries where it was agreed to change the rules of the royal succession, told attendees: "I turned to the Australian prime minister and said, 'thank you very much for letting us have this meeting in Australia'.
"And she said, I can't quite do the accent but I'll try: 'Not a bit David, this is good news for Sheilas everywhere'."
While the Sydney Morning Herald displayed restrained by describing his efforts as "bizzare", other papers didn't hold back.
The Australian Telegraph described it as one of the "worst Aussie accents in history" and "so bad it could cause a diplomatic row".
And the Business Spectator labelled it "questionable", as it wondered why some of the British media had defended Cameron's efforts.
