My friends are by definition people that I *don’t* hate. I make the mistake of spending my social time with real-estate obsessed losers approximately once, then avoid like the plague that they are.

“But Canberra is different, and this boom is different, and it will never, ever end!”

I would like to see the unlimited capital gains tax shelter on the family home slashed.

A word about the Australian Homeowners Party (the AHP).
Not that I would ever suspect Labor of such a thing as setting up a bogus party – but it would sure be in GreenLabors interest for votes to be splintered off the Libs. Check the 2008 results. 15% of centre and right votes largely wasted.

Unusual platform. I wonder if it is related to the problems of fracking where corporations can just come onto your land without permission and drill for gas. In these cases the homeowners or landowners have no rights because they do not own the subsoil only the top layer.

As a partial homeowner, who shares the Deed to Title with a bank, and isn’t a landlord, I’m wondering how current government policy benefits me?

Alternatively, I’d like to see how the Home-o policies will benefit me?

Because it’s all about meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

Let me guess. This party will advocate for more loose monetary policy, and more ridiculous handouts to home-owners; just to make everyone who is not a home owner worse off?

so a rival ‘home renters party’ will be the rent boys?

Great time for it, property prices have well and truly tanked in the ACT, there are going to be some great bargains to be had in the next 6 months or so.

tanked? sort of. Bottomed? no way.
The incoming liberal government has pledged to cut 12,000 public service jobs. Good luck seeing much of an upside once that gets into gear and flows through to the rest of the Canberra economy.

Surely this must be a jest – if ever there was a segment of Australian society that does not need any help with being looked after by politicians it is existing homeowners.

They are so well looked after that the health of the overall economy is secondary to their interests FFS.

Now if there was an End the Rorts on Housing Party we might be getting somewhere.

I’d want to see you policy on excluding certain people from the party’s target demographic.

C’mon,

Everyone’s got one or two friends that constantly talk about real estate. Everyone hates them.

Now imagine putting a whole group of them together in the same place.

Casually mention something about falling property prices, negative gearing or baby boomers being leeches on society.

Then get a good position and watch the fireworks.

No dad, that’s not the Homer tax, that’s the Home Owners tax…

Odds are they got so excited with the punchy name they came up with that they put policy development on hold so they could spruik the great moniker a bit.
