Darren Cheeseman seems to be going out of his way to be seen as the biggest dill to ever sit in Federal Parliament.
CORANGAMITE MP Darren Cheeseman has been accused of misleading some of his most vulnerable constituents by promising pensioners a cash windfall that they’ve already received.
In a letter sent to pensioners in the country’s most marginal electorate last week, Mr Cheeseman said this year’s Federal Budget would increase their government handout by $154 per fortnight for singles and $156 for couples.
But the figure quoted by Mr Cheeseman is how much pensions have risen in the past three years.
You might recall that when this bloke won his seat – based in Geelong and points south-west – he celebrated with friends and family in Ballarat.
