It seems as though every TV channel, newspaper and website is dominated by BREXIT discussions and here at NappyValleyNet we’ve been suffering from a bad case of FOMO.
As a result we’ve decided to run our very own BREXIT poll and we’d love for you to take part!
Click this link, it’s totally anonymous and in doing so you’ll be able to see which way Nappy Valley is going to vote. Maybe.
Now where did I put my Swingometer…?
