A county that is officialy in east anglia NOT the south east. (now i live in essex so its ok for me to rant about it) Essex is stereotyped as a cultural wasteland, and unfortunately in many cases this is true. You can divide essex into two, the north and the south, both sides are totaly different but have equally annoying people. The south is very urbanised and full of loud, agressive, fake cockneys who wear tacky gold chains and predend to be some big east end crime lord.
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
Southern essexer: Oi mate, wot u lookin at? dont u know im a gangter from east landon?
northern essexer: get orf my fucking land *bang* *bang*
