Winston wrong already

Winston has claimed that the increase in superannuation from 65% to 66% of the average wage (for a married couple) will mean $18 a week extra or $939 a year extra.

However this is obviously wrong as that suggests the average wage is $93,900.

A married couple (both retired) get $470.32 a week. If this is 65% of the average wage then 66% will be $477.56 or $7.24 a week extra ($377 a year extra).

So this calculation by Winston is about as credible as his contention that he is not a member of the Government despite being its Foreign Minister. Perhaps he is like the Minister of Magic in Harry Potter and us muggles are just too dumb to work it out.
