The picturesque coastal town of Dunfanaghy is to hold a referendum on joining the UK.

The announcement was made earlier today at a rally in the recently renamed, Margaret Thatcher Square.

On September 18th, Dunfanaghy residents will be asked one question, “Do yiz phwant to join the Brits,” in a move which could see it become a part of the U.K. on the same day that Scotland leaves.

With immediate effect, the popular Football Special drink could be removed from all Dunfanaghy shelves and replaced with Pimms.

If the referendum is passed, it is also expected that Dunfanaghy would make a formal application to be twinned with what will then be, the foreign town of Portnablagh.

Latest opinion polls show the YES side ahead on 73% of the vote and neighbouring parishes such as Falcarragh and Creeslough will be drafted in for the week leading up to polling day to help push the YES side even higher.
