See the Maybot's snap general election cost a cool 140 million quid+.

Money well spent,obviously.
plus the billion extra for Northern Ireland that didn't feature in the manifesto. Today the DUP voted with Labour to defeat the government on the pay cap. Which begs the question 'what exactly are DUP expected to do to get the 1 billion?' if they are free to vote against the government it sounds like a very poor deal (especially as the funds are to come from 'a growing economy').
