These are dark times for the UK. With the whole country falling apart, Brexit looming and all our public services gasping for air under the harsh and cruel Tory cuts, you may be carrying a lot of pent up anger and anxiety around with you.

Well, on a personal level at least, help is at hand. Now you can harmlessly purge that frustration with the cathartic and therapeutic Theresa May Voodoo Pincushion!!
