£1.14bn election is price of May's vanity

Commenting on reports that the total bill for the snap general election was over £140 million, Alistair Carmichael, Liberal Democrat Chief Whip said:

“Not only has Theresa May spent over £140 million of public money on an election she promised not to call, her failure in that election forced her to bung £1 billion more of our money to the DUP. The British taxpayer is paying for May’s mistakes. Yet she tightens the purse strings when it comes to paying for our essential services or giving nurses a pay rise.

“She takes lessons from Ebenezer Scrooge when it comes to the people but Wayne Rooney when it comes to her vanity.

“It is a frightening prospect for this country that someone this poor with the public purse is left in charge.”
