Was he going with George Michael or Michael Jackson? This could use some commas or something. How are we to know which weird, gay performer he is referencing? I get that it’s probably George Harrison, but how are we to know for sure?
East Sussex is not almost Essex. There is definitely a gap between the two. Culturally and geographically. That might be a reason why you never hear that comparison. Don’t blame this guys stupidity on his location.
