The Queen of the South Thread

The only halfwit is our chairman Billy Hewitson.  

Inviting guests to a match when the region is in level 4 lockdown is the act of a mind cripple. He should step down immediately. 
 

Does Tier 4 apply to political messiahs?

I think other than one poster on here every sensible QoS fan knows he's a cretin. Sadly, it appears he's in good company with our BoD.


I'm glad it's picking up some heat from elsewhere. Hopefully it will result in some of them walking.

As VT said he's got exactly what he wanted, drive up here, publicise that he's breaking the travel rules, go to a game, publicise that he's breaking the rules and boom he's in the press again. Tbh I'm waiting for him to turn it into a "Scotland was meant to be a friendly welcoming place and look how the treat me" piece. It's crazy that Queens thought they have the media knowledge to keep him in check he's cost your club reputation and most likely some cash. The Queen's fans have been good not deflecting the blame but your board are clearly hopeless and probably for the best if some were to move on.

Who in the name of feck thought allowing George Galloway and his family to attend a fixture against Dundee FC was going to end well???

I cannot believe @PoliceScotland will not be getting involved.

Is there any point in any of us sticking to COVID-19 Protocols anymore ? I can think of many supporters, volunteers and disadvantaged who I would rather have seen given a chance to see “their” team in the flesh!!!

No surprise to see Queen of the South rolling out the red carpet for a far-right extremist, British nationalist like Galloway. Despicable wee club.
Will enjoy their imminent relegation and liquidation.

If that's me, then tbf I do think he's a cretin. I think I called him an insignificant bam earlier in this thread.
It wasn't you.

No, the stand is in the amber zone. The green zone is the stadium surrounds. Link to the full guidance from SFA below.

Ah, hadn't realised that. Shouldn't have been there then.

I've been lucky enough to be at a few Saints games this season as I've been reporting on them. I felt incredibly privilaged to be there as I could easily have done it from home, so there is absolutely no way a guest of the club should have been there yesterday. In terms of the rules, the identity of that guest is irrelevant although obviously the fact it's that twat makes it even harder to stomach.

Reminds me a few years ago telling an English guy at a Christmas party that George Galloway was nothing to do with Dumfries and Galloway, which has finally proven to be wrong. At least this incident should help him spread the club's name to his millions of followers...

How's League One working out for you? I've missed your insightful contributions to the Championship threads.

So you don't cross a border driving from Langholm to Penton and Carlisle? 

What on earth has that got to do with anything? The Borders and Dumfries and Galloway are two entirely different regions.

There is no administrative  region called The Borders,  it proper name is The Scottish Borders. Referring to Dumfries as a Border town has nothing to do with being associated with or being contained within the region properly called The Scottish Borders.  Carlisle for example calls itself The Border City on city limit signs (or used to the last time I was there)  yet is not in The Scottish Borders.  To be quite honest,  Dumfries being referred to as being in the Borders doesn't bother me in the slightest,  it's probably historically and geographically correct, I can differentiate between being a Border town from being in The Scottish Borders. Travel brochures often refer to places in Dumfries and Galloway as being in the borders,  even places further from the Border than Dumfries is,  that's a general,  maybe lazy,  term that can be applied to anywhere from Eyemouth to Stranraer.

Pedantry or not, The Borders/The Scottish Borders are a totally different region to Dumfries and Galloway.

It’s been turgid and embarrassing.

But not as embarrassing as supporting a tragic bumpkin outfit who are happy to shaft their own fans to accommodate a far-right, rabble-rousing, carpetbagging  scumbag like George Galloway.

As if  electing Alister Jack wasn’t embarrassing enough! 

Would be a real shame if the Nith burst its banks this winter.

This can only go one way..... 

 

There are 3 directors, Hewitson, Paterson And Blount if all 3 Or who ever knew that GG was going to be there With his family during the Covid-19 pandemic then they all need to resign tonight.

Imagine walking into either one of these businessmen place of work Pharmacy, accountants or building firms With your family and saying it’s cool I we will sit in the corner and create a bubble.

 

Also how many of these men have taken the Furlough money, building grants and looked for help from the agency’s in Dumfries

Given the embarrassment suffered by QoS supporters today it takes some doing for a fan of another club to be the biggest state on this thread. Fair play.

It certainly looks like there has been at least one breach of the restrictions by either or both parties, but I get the impression the Queens board will see it as a bit of a ‘win’ for them if there hasn’t been.

I think the whole ‘fans haven’t been to a game since March but we’ll let a random man and his family in because he’s relatively famous’ bit completely lost on them.

That statement is astonishingly tone deaf and frankly pathetic.

If you look at The area of the new South of Scotland Enterprise Covers you can clearly see the DG and Borders are one
