Why do posh people say wank instead of rank?

Hice instead of house, is it a sort of mason's handshake way they can identify each other to the exclusion of the riff raff?

I like Ridenation - makes me sound like a son of anarchy or a pornographer stud perhaps, rather than just my building society reversed.

When one listens to the accents of America’s old East Coast moneyed class – those of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, William F. Buckley, and Katharine Hepburn – one notes striking similarities to the ‘Queen’s’ English once spoken on the other side of the Atlantic.

The common denominator is non-rhoticity, sometimes known as ‘r-lessness.’
