Gay Man to Repay First Home Owners Grant

By Kramer - 24 July 2007 28

The ABC reported yesterday that the ACT Administrative Appleals Tribunal ruled that a Canberra man will have to repay his $7,000 first home owners grant as he was in a defacto relationship with a man who had already received the grant.

So according to the Commonwealth, they don’t recognise same sex relationships, unless its taking money out of their pockets? I have heard of many hetro couples getting the grant when they should not have – and are yet to be caught. So are gay couples undergoing greater scrutiny, or are people in the community more likely to dob in a homo couple?

What’s Your opinion?

Thank you Danman. Hook, line & sinker. I rest my case…

Not sure I understand that statement there friend – however – let me re-iterate my position in life

BigDave – Im getting married… to a Female – I assure you I am not gay (not that there is anything wrong with that) but I do despise discrimination – in any form – and in the absence of any homosexual regulars posting to RiotAct I thought I would jump in the ring (no pun intended) to defend the innocents on their absence.

I do not see what there is to be afraid of anyway – research has proven that guys will shag anything unless they know their mates will find out – so go ahead Dave – live a little – you little sweetheart you xxoo

Either the government gives full equal marrage / defacto rights to gay couples or none at all. This current suitation is just so unworkable and unfair.

Thank you Danman. Hook, line & sinker. I rest my case…
