Should we have this one? It's not exactly Not Even Bothering With The Accents and its far from Just a Stupid Accent. It might be a sister trope to The Queen's Latin, but I don't think it qualifies as a subtrope because it applies not only to historical cases, but modern and futuristic ones as well.

The two examples I can think of are

1: Star Trek TNG, Captain Picard

2: Les MisÚrables, just about every cast member. High class characters have posh accents, lower class characters have cockney ones.
