I just heard some interesting local gossip, that is, Godwin Grech is selling his Calwell home and leaving Canberra. The story has even made the national dailies (see HeraldSun.com.au).
With Malcolm Turnbull also out of the spotlight, Grech’s departure sees that last year’s “Utegate” scandal did indeed claim a couple of political scalps, just not the ones Turnbull was hoping for.
Mike Boyle from LJ Hooker Tuggeranong has the listing, which can be seen on allhomes. Commenting on Grech’s listing Boyle told the HeraldSun, “He’s committed to selling. He wants to be with relatives.”
It is understood he will be moving to the Altona area in Melbourne where he was raised.
It’s probably a bit unfair to criticise too much at this point, so best wishes to Mr Grech for his future away from Canberra.
