The Daily Bale and the mysterious ‘UAF turtle beating’

turtleIt just carries on, doesn’t it Joshua? I was shocked to read this story on your site, claiming that a UAF member had bludgeoned a turtle to death in Norwich – after all, we all love animals don’t we?

And of course, you name the man (someone else who’s pissed you off?).

Such a shame then that you invented this story (no, surely not, not another one?)

Because although this incident DID happen, it happened in June, and in America.

So you changed the facts, the location and named someone else you have a pathetic grudge against? You managed to get the photograph rtight, so i guess you should get some brownie points for that, although more stupidity points for making it easy for me to find the original story.

Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story though eh?



Joshua Bonehill and Nikki Pilkington – the Aftermath…

Well, it’s certainly been an interesting week 🙂

After being accused of stealing a teddy bear and some flowers from the grave of murdered soldier Lee Rigby, and fighting back in the only way I could, here’s what has and hasn’t happened:


My Blog

I originally posted the blog linked to above on my own website,

Within 3 hours it had over 1000 unique views. Unfortunately within 3 hours my website and hosting company were hit with a massive DDoS attack (denial of service) and my site disappeared – coincidence? I think not… My hosting company explained that not only was my site down, the whole server was down (this continued for the next 6 hours with hundreds of thousands of requests being sent to my site in order to ‘crash’ it).

Unfortunately my host was left with no choice but to ask me to leave their service.

I presume this was meant to scare me or make me stop – it didn’t.

Now what?

As soon as we realised that the site wasn’t coming back up anytime soon, Leigh and I formulated another plan. We posted mirror copies of the blog to WordPress, Tumblr and Blogger – try your hardest people, you can’t bring them all down 🙂

Between the 4 versions of the blog, we’ve had over 5000 unique views in 48 hours. The blogs have been shared across Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and beyond. They’ve been posted on Facebook Pages that posted the original blog accusing me of the grave robbery, and linked to from websites that covered the original story.

Thank you to all of you who have shared and tweeted my response – it is very much appreciated.

What HASN’T happened?

So far I haven’t been raped, buggered, murdered or stabbed. My house and car are still intact. My children are still alive and kicking. I haven’t seen a dead man’s penis 🙂

I haven’t had one more negative comment on my Facebook pages or Twitter account since posting the blogs.

I haven’t heard from Mr Bonehill. In fact no-one seems to have. His ‘Daily Bale’ website hasn’t been updated, his Facebook pages and some of his aliases have disappeared. He seems to have gone to ground.

What HAS happened?

I’ve had hundreds of supportive messages across various social media platforms – thank you to you all, I will try to reply to everyone.

I’ve found a new web host and my site should be back up soon 🙂

I’ve had one private message of apology from one of the people who threatened me – that’s right, ONE out of the 100+ messages of hatred I received. Quick to judge, not so quick to apologise I guess. Or maybe they just can’t spell ‘sorry’. There may have been apologies on some of the threads I haven’t yet been able to get around to reading, but I won’t hold my breath too long.

The police are still investigating Mr Bonehill and his known associates, and have profile links and details for all of the people who abused me, along with copies of their comments.

My final thoughts

It may seem that I’ve not taken this very seriously. Trust me I have. Mr Bonehill and his cronies went out to attack me personally and business wise because of a member of my family. When they realised I wasn’t reacting how I ‘should’, they attacked my daughter. They threatened and abused me, and cost me a lot of time and money.

That said, I still find the whole thing quite amusing, especially the response since my blog. Yes, even the DDoS attack, despite what it has cost me in terms of time and downtime.

However, that’s ME. They are out there still, and they’ll attack other people and those people may not take the whole thing in their stride. Online bullying is a serious thing – people have killed themselves because of it. Trying to destroy someone’s reputation, business or otherwise, is not big and it’s not clever. One day it may be one of YOUR family members.

To the people who chose to send the vile messages – I don’t expect an apology from you (although it may help you with the police), but I do ask that you THINK next time you decide to vomit all over someone’s Facebook page / Twitter account / Email. Do some research, ask yourself how likely it is that something is true, and even if it is, will your illiterate threats help the situation or make you feel better? Ask yourself how you would feel if it was your mother / sister / daughter that had to go through what me and my daughter have been through in the last week?

See, I relished checking my messages and emails, because every insult added fuel to my fire. But someone else may dread even switching their computer on – it’s easy to do it when you don’t know the person involved, but one day it could happen to someone YOU know and are close to – not feeling so big and hard now are you?

And finally, thank you to so many people – everyone who has supported me and helped to share the blog post. But most of all thank you to my gorgeous daughter who has kept her head held high despite being attacked herself and seen the whole thing as the farce it is. I’m inordinately proud of how she has dealt with this and hope that everyone who knows her is too. And of course my fantastic partner who, once he had stopped worrying for my safety, saw the funny side too and supported me in dealing with this in my own way. I’m very lucky to be surrounded by such supportive and wonderful people.

This will be my last blog on this subject, unless Mr Bonehill decides on another course of attack, as I have real work to do 🙂


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)
