07 Jan Where Are They Now: James Bond
Well its a new year and MI6 has released their year end budget. Be advised the information in the reports are extremely classified so it is difficult to make out what context some of the expenses were brought forth. However, some details are intriguing to say the least — for example, Q branch spent 1.5 million U.S dollars on repairs for two Aston Martin DB10s (thats 1.5 million each!), 24,880 U.S. dollars on Tom Ford suits, jackets, pants sunglasses and tuxedos, 7,500 U.S. dollars on an Omega Seamaster 300 watch that can explode, and the branch also had spent 616 U.S. dollars on alcoholic drinks which were all surprisingly Bellvadere Vodka Martinis (shaken, not stirred).
When you factor in hotels, trips, weapons, and other transport vehicles, the total expenses came out to $1.5 billion dollars! But here’s the kicker, it’s all reportedly from one agent, a 007. Given MI6 has saved us from Spectre, Quantum, Silva and Le Chiffe, if spending $1.5 billion dollars on one agent is what it takes to save the world, than I guess so be it.
