Writes a column in the Evening Telegraph. Guy was a BNP activist praised by Nick Griffin (Google him). So DCT Thompson content to give a former far right member a voice in their publications but are they happy to employ a Hearts fan who wants to stop hunger in the city but ‘starve’ the professional football clubs here, including our ‘rotten’ club?

The guy turned away from the mistakes of his youth a long time ago and has spent many, many years helping the most vulnerable in our city and across Scotland. Up to him if he wants to come to Dens or not.

You lads want to have a look at yourself.

He can spend his money where he likes but encouraging others to ‘starve’ our football club is not very Christian of him.

Depends what his reasons are. Maybe you can have a Bible Study with him and chat with him.

I’m an atheist so would be a short chat. The guy is having a pop at us using some incendiary language on an open forum but is beyond criticism because of the charitable work he’s done since leaving a racist political party? Ha ha.

Dunno, you seem concerned about his Christianity so it might be longer than you think.

What on earth does his past have to do with it?

Think the point is he is just speaking as a Hearts fan. Why bring his views into this Forum? We would not expect a United supporter's views about us to be posted on here and equally I don't think we should be discussing what a Hearts supporter thinks.

Might have a knock on effect to employees at the club perhaps, people living in the city he claims to love so much? A tad hypocritical? Bit of a change of language from that of his Tully columns funnily enough.

He won't be the first or last to refuse to spend his time and money at Dens for reasons of his own choosing, tribal or otherwise. He's a Hearts fan, has strong views on recent events impacting his club, and will boycott Dens to make a personal statement. I don't think it's motivated by blind hatred.

No disrespect gents, I think we should rise above some of the comments listed so far on this thread. There really are more important things going on in the world. 🙂

So bringing up his past was irrelevant then yeah?

Probably need to spell this out for you, or you’re being obtuse, but the language he used on this Hearts forum maybe sounds something more akin to the previous incarnation than the current Tully friendly one?

So because he's more critical of our club on a fans forum than he is in his newspaper columns, we can bring up his BNP past from when he was 18 and question whether he still has BNP leanings?

I think we should leave it at that.
