Got election ennui?

No matter. These 12 keepsakes will get you excited and engaged with the political process like never before…

Now, let's start with a T-shirt celebrating the most popular woman in politics:

Brenda from Bristol

An incredulous Brenda spoke for the nation upon hearing news of June's snap election. If you haven't seen the video yet, you must.

But who will be Brenda's prime minister come June 9?

If memorabilia sales are any indication, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will romp home.

Despite a recent narrowing in the polls, Theresa May looks set to win comfortably. And when she does, why not throw a dinner party to mark the occasion?

Guests can mingle with this...

Theresa May full-size cardboard cut-out in the living room…

…while you put the finishing touches to the hors d'oeuvres in your "Hard Brexit" apron.

And as an after dinner entertainment, why not serve coffees wearing this extraordinary...

"Deluxe" latex mask purporting to be our current PM?

It's said to "guarantee amazement". Kanye West also available.

While May is expected to enjoy a landslide victory in England (despite the persistent and increasingly futile anti-Brexit campaign of Lib Dem leader Tim Farron)…

…in Scotland, there's only one name in town:

Nicola Sturgeon.

ghhghg £14.95 on eBay.

On this long-sleeved tee (perfect for those chilly summer nights on the oil rigs), Nicola gazes determinedly towards an independent Scotland.

But back to the Tories for a moment:

Should the unthinkable happen, and the Conservatives lose on June 8, a party leadership election will closely follow. If so, expect to see these two marginalised Tories back in the fray:

Michael Gove colouring book

Boris Johnson "scenes of London life" postcard.

ghghhg £3.99 on eBay

And who's that trying out a Boris Bike for herself? It looks remarkably like Theresa. At least, it looks more like her than that latex mask.

And finally...

Spare a thought for the forgotten man in all of this, Nigel Farage.

In post-Brexit Britain, Nigel now finds himself without a clear purpose.

It's a time for new hobbies and to enjoy the garden, perhaps.

Which is where this lifelike fella comes in.
