Why do working class people in the UK have different dialects ?

The upper/middle class seem to speak proper understandable English (from an Australian perspective) whereas working class talk much louder, less clearer and very rough especially the working class Scots where they seem to talk gibberish language. In Australia education has very little to do with how we talk it's only if you live away from the city you sound more broad Steve Irwin accent but still have a PHD.

    Because before Australia was colonised, most people never left their own region and every village had its own dialect. Scots is a different language from English, and Gaelic isn't even a germanic one
