Unless you have a very good reason to pick up a certain accent (eg. boyfriend), then you'd be better off sticking with a standard accent, ie. a BBC newsreader accent. When you talk to more native speakers, you may find their accents rub off on you... it's not a problem, just let it naturally happen.

Yeah. Local accents can be viewed quite negatively in the UK, anyway. True, it's becoming more accepted to have one, but I really don't see why a person would opt to learn an accent over RP without a specific reason to make them do so.
