Joshua Bonehill, Nikki Pilkington and Lee Rigby’s grave robbery that never took place

*Please note, throughout this blog post I have posted pictures of the messages and comments I have received on my business Facebook page and my personal Facebook profile – please excuse the language of the comments, I am just posting what the commentors wrote.


How it all began

So, on Friday evening, after putting my 3 year old daughter to bed and settling down for an evening of TV watching with my partner, we receive a Facebook message from a friend saying ‘Hope Nikki is OK after the nasty story about her’.

Story? What story? I decide it can wait until the morning and we carry on watching TV.

Then my phone starts pinging – message after message on Facebook; some from people expressing worry for me and some wishing me dead. I also have about 40 friend requests from people I have never heard of.

A quick Google search revealed this story (click for bigger version):


Along with a lovely picture of me and links to all of my profiles, was a libellous allegation that I have robbed someone’s grave.

For the record, I haven’t. Of course I haven’t. I had to look up who Lee Rigby was, and once we found out he was buried in Bury, I had to look on a map to find where that was! It’s over 200 miles away from where I live…

At this point I just laughed and said ‘Don’t worry about it – it’s probably some nutter who just liked my picture’. My partner was more worried when he saw the other sites this had been posted to – Neo Nazi sites, among others.


I refused to let it worry me and ruin my evening and we went to bed.

The next morning

After breakfast I decided to read the messages I was being sent. Hundreds of them, from idiots who actually believe this website’s claims. Among other things I’ve been called:

  • a bitch
  • a slag
  • a whore
  • a slut
  • vile
  • scum of the earth
  • a ‘Muslim lover’
  • and more

The messages and comments threatened me with:

  • rape
  • murder
  • public lynching
  • public villification
  • being anally raped with a dead man’s penis
  • having my children hurt / raped / killed
  • having my house torched
  • having my car torched
  • BEING torched
  • having bricks put through my windows
  • having my business destroyed
  • and much much more


I have to admit, I still didn’t really take it seriously, but I did begin to wonder how many idiots there are on the Internet (and why none of them seem to be able to spell or construct a sentence).

My supporters

Thankfully I had a lot of support. From friends, from business acquaintances, from clients and from people I had never even met who knew that Joshua Bonehill was known for spreading lies, and his followers were pretty much all well known trolls.


But still the nutters kept coming. All weekend they were posting, yet not a peep from Mr Bonehill? Maybe he wasn’t as brave as he thought he was? Maybe my blase reaction took him by surprise? Maybe the massive support I got unnerved him slightly? Maybe his mum had banned him from the computer? Who knows, but he was conspicuous by his absense.

So I started to look into him a little more…


Joshua Bonehill and the Daily Bale

It seems our Josh has a history of picking on women, but why me? A quick search reveals that he’s in a spat with my step sister Maggie Chapman, who has outed him over allegedly stealing money he made from selling tshirts for the Lee Rigby charity. Did he do this? I have no idea. And to be honest I don’t care. Although it is a little ironic that someone accused of stealing from a dead soldier is now accusing me of doing the same…

Other stories came to light – he’s a bonkers right wing supporter, wanted to be a politician, got arrested a couple of years ago for dunkenly stealing a policeman’s uniform and has a lot of haters out there. Poor wee boy – hope his mummy gives him lots of cuddles.


He also changes supportive comments on his site. One of my friends posted a supportive (of me) comment that was then changed to ‘I hate black people’ – another posted a message of support only to have it changed to ‘Burn the bitch’. My gorgeous daughter Leigh posted a comment only to have it changed to ‘She’s my mum and she beats me’ – well, I am very competitive I guess :)

So why Nikki Pilkington?

It seems the only sin I have is sharing the same mother as Maggie. Nothing more, nothing less. He had been threatening her with attacking her family and I was easy to find and probably looked pretty well connected. So he attacked me.


He shouldn’t have. I’m not one to roll over and die, and I wasn’t going to get all upset and worried. I found the whole thing pretty peurile and amusing, and still to some extent do.

His followers posted an address that doesn’t belong to me and encouraged each other to go and ‘torch the place’. It hasn’t been done, thankfully.


I haven’t been raped, buggered, torched, killed or slapped. No one has approached me in the street and shouted at me. My kids are both still safe. I still have my sense of humour and I’ve not lost any sleep over it.

Joshua Bonehill targets Leigh Quantrill

Some of you know my eldest daughter Leigh. She spent a good part of the weekend sticking up for me and finding out more about Mr Bonehill.

He didn’t like that, bless him…

SoImage he posted this ludicrous story:

Yes, that’s an altered image of Leigh. A badly altered image it has to be said. Bonehill claims that my daughter is facially disfigured and cuts the heads off cats for fun. Of course she does… Leigh can’t chop raw chicken without gagging, yet she can saw off a feline’s bonce…

Apparently she’s ‘fled to France where she takes part in Left Wing marches’…

Err, she has lived in France since 2007 and wouldn’t know Left Wing if it marched right past her.

Targeting me, that’s fine. Mess with my kids and you’re in trouble…


A little bit about me

  • I’m not a slag, whore, or a slut.
  • I’m pretty sure I’m not scum and definitely not the scum of the earth
  • I am, however, a bitch
  • I don’t live in Yorkshire
  • I still have no real idea where Bury is, or how to get there
  • I don’t like cut flowers
  • I do like teddy bears
  • I am the least political person you will ever meet – I had to have it explained to me what left and right wing politics were, and what the political organisations being mentioned were
  • You don’t mess with my kids


A little bit about Leigh

  • she loves cats
  • she doesn’t have a badly photoshooped facial deformity
  • she doesn’t run a disabled website – she’s a VA
  • she is also a bitch, and you don’t mess with her mum


A little bit about Joshua Bonehill

  • he’s a liar
  • he’s a thief
  • he’s a coward
  • he’s an idiot


So what next?

Well, this has all been reported to the police, who are investigating. The Facebook profiles of every single person who has attacked or threatened me have been handed over. There WILL be arrests made.

I will continue to smile and ignore the idiots who believe these malicious slurs against me and my family.

I will still be a bitch, and still NOT be political.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me – I have so many messages to reply to that it will take time, but I will reply.


They say keep your friends close but your enemies closer – Joshua Bonehill, you and I are going to be VERY close soon and I would suggest it’s better for you if it’s across a courtroom and not in the street. Nice try, sonny, but you picked on the wrong people this time…

(For the first time in my blogging life I am refusing to accept rude or negative comments. Anyone who wants to contact me or say something is welcome to post on my Facebook profile, which I will continue to leave as public, but I’m not prepared to moderate the loons I’m afraid)

  1. Well done Nikki for not allowing yourself to be taken to the lowest of the low with what must be a very distorted view, by Joshua Bonehill, of life and women… and for those who put their keyboard into action with comments they may later regret, let the weight of the law punish them to the full hilt

  2. Well done Nikki. Always take the haters with a pillar of salt. (Then smack them with it)

  3. What a Brave Mum you are,
    Stick to your Gun’s & bring these Backstreet Idiots to book!!
    Ex Serviceman.

  4. Well done for standing up to the vile bullying.

  5. Good on you kidda – a very brave woman indeed.

  6. Bonehill is a vicious little inadequate, I hope you take him and his loony followers to the cleaners. its the only way he’ll ever learn.

  7. I do not know you personally but it seems you know a lot of people who know me and that’s how I learned of your situation. Your reaction to the appalling behaviour of others is astonishing and you have my best wishes.

  8. Bonehill has been making a pain of himself for a few months now on Facebook using his army of ‘alts’ to report-bomb people and dish out 12hr bans to anybody who tries to stand up against him (I’ve been a victim of this a number of times). Last weekend I found myself in the very surreal position of actually standing (virtual) shoulder-to-shoulder with a group of self confessed Nazis (I’m a ‘leftie’) in trying to do something about him over the crap he was spreading about you and others. You have my full support and I hope you are the one who finally manages to bring justice to bear on him (believe me, we have tried, but he’s always managed to squirm his way out of it). If you need any help, look on facebook for SLATUKIP ( or on twitter ( … you’ll find many people who will help you.

  10. Well done Nikki for keeping your sense of humour in what must have been a horrible time for you and you family while strangers flocked to post threats, judge, make false allegations and tirelessly continued to hurl mindless abuse x

  11. Well done Nikki, I did see the story but I didnt think it was true as no one would do this (only someone who is anti our troops like the people who brutally murdered Lee). I am so sorry that you have been at the receiving end of this scumbag and I truly hope he gets what he deserves. I very much doubt he expected you to stand up to him like this, no wonder he has been silent. It will be you who has the last laugh 🙂

  12. Wow Nikki! What a tale!

    I truly hope the police are able to do something about this nutter. Although sounds like a mental institution would be the most appropriate path for him and some of the other disturbed people who’ve been threatening you.

    Great response on your behalf to the lunatic fringe though.

  13. I’m sorry you have had to deal with this stupidity. I hope it gets resolved quickly so that life can get back to normal
    Best Regards

  14. Well done Nikki, go get the stupid little p***k. If there is some way I can assist just let me know.

  15. Well done Nikki.
    A well thought out and concise reply. I am aghast at the fact that some out there actually believe the crap on the Daily Bale.
    I went onto the blog and put that the story about The Globe was fake. He changed my comments to something about the should be publicly executed. He really is a vile lowlife and I hope that the Police catch up with him and his followers and he and they get what he/they deserve.
    You have been so dignified in your response, I take my hat off to you x

  17. I know I’ve emailed you before Nikki, but I still can’t believe the amount of vile, offensive rubbish that has been directed at you. I’m glad that the police are on the case and hope things can return to normal for you all soon.

  18. Take care Nikki, the man is a hateful idiot and those who follow him are just as bad…

  19. Bloody fantastic. Go you!!!
