Essex man and Mondeo man are stereotypical figures which were popularised in s England. The "Essex man" as a political figure is an example of a type of median voter and was used to help explain the electoral successes of Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the s.

Their children enjoyed housing, education and employment opportunities far removed from the experiences of their parents.
