He can run away or say whatever he wanted but in PoA, the Dursleys were still responsible for him and they never kicked him out, so, that's still HIS home. DH is different. He's already a man, and adult: he is no more under their supervision, and the spell is over.
Leaving the Dursleys for good broke the enchantment in DH... so whyHarry has no say in it. Petunia does. As long as he can call her
didn't it break when Harry left home after blowing up Aunt Marge at
the beginning of PoA??
Clearly *he* had no intention of going back, and it was only the
intervention of the MoM that smoothed the situation over vis a vis
Surely if *Harry* thought he had left for good that was the end of the
place home, the magic is still in effect. And regardless of what he
did to Marge, she was always going to let him call her place home
until he's an adult.
You know, that's a good point... But, didn't they leave before his 17th birthday? He wasn't considered of age yet...
Re-read the chapter.
You will see that the protection did not wear off until he became 17 - even though he left the day before. That's when it became his decision.
