BILLABONG visitors are a cluey lot, so this query is borne on the modest hope that someone may have the answer:
What was Julia Gillard's address in Collingwood, circa 1993, when she was mostly sleeping over with beau and blackguard Bruce Wilson at 85 Kerr Street, Fitzroy?
The property records, including building permits and permissions to renovate, might make interesting reading. The name of the contractor, for example, would be good to have, as this detail might inspire an industrious reporter to track him down and ask a few questions about the manner in which he was paid. So far, all we have is Gillard's assurance, supported by a handwritten receipt no one else seen, that her home improvements were paid for with cash unencumbered by fraud or outright theft.
Yes, yes, it's a long shot -- not finding the records, mind you, just locating a curious reporter.
