1. Life in Essex just goes by a different set of rules.

Don't fancy having a hair cut here.. #OnlyInSouthend

2. We like to take it easy.

3. Take our graffiti for example.


4. We don't do the whole "Banksy street art" thing.

5. Life here goes at a different pace.

Having to stop to allow chickens to cross the road. Gotta love the countryside #EssexProblems

6. Our fashion staples are a little different from what you may be used to.

14. In Essex, we know how to bring a bit of glamour to the mundane.

19. You can't handle our car swag.

This is genuinely someone's number plate #shutup #onlyinessex πŸ™ˆ

20. So yes, while we can sometimes be a bit naff.

Photo-snapping fun in #basildon earlier with @Mike4SBET & @Callaghan2015 and that iconic sign.

21. And prone to slightly exaggerating things from time to time.


22. Essex is truly God's own country.

23. Where the people are full of friendly advice to all.

24. And accepting of many an alternative lifestyle.

26. The police work is top notch and all.

Who is this? We want to ID him in connection with theft of Β£90 worth of condoms in #Witham
