The north of essex on the other hand is vastly rural, and seems more welcoming but dont be fooled. The people who live here are the english equivilent of rednecks, though not usually racist, they are agressively conservative and will go completely sectarian on anyone who tries to change their traditions. They all have shotguns and a usually a vast aray of other lethal weapons, that they wont hesitate to use on trespassers and poachers.
So there you have it Essex, contrary to everything i have just said, essex is a great place
northern essexer: get orf my fucking land *bang* *bang*
People from Essex dislike chavs just as much as anybody else here does.
There are some complete idiots in esses but, isnt there idiots everywhere?
It's funny because i'm an Essex girl, born and bred in one of the 'worst' parts, yet i'm not a slag, not pregnant, don't wear burberry or any fake crap, can talk properly and i'm well educated.
Go figure. :)
2) contains popular domestic holiday destinations such as southend, shoeburyness and basildon.

I have lived in both Basildon and Southend, but I am neither a chav nor emo...I am just a regular person. I am not poor, I do not claim benefits and I will NEVER become pregnant at 14. I would also like to state that as someone who is interested in fashion, Burberry is still a luxury brand - although sterotype 'chavs' wear fake designer stuff, I would never be caught dead in it. If you were to flip through the pages of VOGUE (yes, I'm probably one of few from Basildon who do read it) I'm sure you would be surprised to find that Burberry hardly use 'that' print in thier designs, or do it in an understated way...rather than that whole Daniella Westbrook (or whatever) look! :|
Yes, I agree that Southend is an area that really has gone down the pan due to its latest inhabiatants, but as someone who grew up in that area (well...mostly Leigh-on-sea aswell) I haven't turned out too bad! I get good grades and I am working towards my ambition of becoming a fashion designer.
So please...DON'T BE FOOLED. BASILDON ISN'T HALF BAD :) Promise!
