I found this interesting table of election spending for the last two general elections in the UK on the UK Political Info site. It shows that in the 2010 general election all parties spent under 30,000,000 pounds.
Consider that the United States’ elections this year will be the most expensive ever, with parties spending over $6 billion, according to Reuters.
Granted we are a much larger country, but it still gives you pause.
None the less, tomorrow is U.S. election day…please, get out and Vote.
