Serial Moron Joshua Bonehill Paine has been making waves again after announcing he is to hold a demonstration in Stamford Hill to target the area’s Jewish Community.
Two years ago we exposed Bonehill as the man behind Woolwich Strong and exposed the far right types he had recruited to run various facets of it. Unsurprisingly, most were from the BNP and the EDL, even less than surprising was the fact that the money raised on the back of the death of Drummer Lee Rigby went into a black hole, never to be seen again.
After we published the article he had a hissy fit regarding us accusing him of being a nazi but as time went on, it became blatantly clear that were very right. It culminated in him threatening to sue us which he never went ahead which, as you will see, is a reoccurring story with Bonehill.
We took a trip to Yeovil recently to find out more about him and this is what we discovered.
- Bonehill attempted to organise a demonstration in Cardiff last year under his National British Resistance Political party. The party consisted of two other people, one with learning difficulties who he scammed for £500. He did not show up, neither did his friends.
- His Woolwich Strong t-shirt sales scam saw him allegedly net over £1000. According to our sources, none of the money has been given to the Lee Rigby fund. A grand total of £5 went to Help for Heroes and then rest he put down as administrative costs.
- Bonehill’s online popularity seems to stem from spending lots of money buying Facebook likes and Twitter followers from countries such as Pakistan, India and Turkey in order to make himself look more popular. Much of that money went down the pan recently when both Twitter and Facebook kicked him off their networks.
- According to locals, Bonehill is allegedly banned from a large supermarket chain nationwide for getting drunk and trying to defecate in the aisle of the cosmetics department, before being forcibly removed by security guards. We cannot corroborate this story ourselves but a number of witnesses have confirmed the story.
- Bonehill has a conviction for using his Conservative party membership card to break into a police station and steal uniforms. When caught he assaulted a police officer.
- He is allegedly banned from the Mermaid pub in Yeovil after one of the bar maids had him up against the wall by his throat and threw him out for reasons we are unable to disclose. Again, a number of local people have confirmed this.
- Drink seems to be a major factor in Bonehill’s life according to most people we spoke to which explains the online bravado exhibited.
- He is awaiting sentencing on five charges of harassment and two charges of malicious communications arising from undertaking lengthy and concerted campaigns branding as paedophiles, people who disagreed and outwitted him online (no hard task).
- After pleading guilty to a hoax which claimed the Globe Pub in Leicester has refused service to a soldier, the BBC described him as a ‘moronic troll’.
On Monday 9th February he is before Yeovil Magistrates to be sentenced for the recent cases of malicious communications and harassment. Only last year he was convicted of similar for the campaign against the Globe pub and the judge told him he had escaped jail by the skin of his teeth after the court heard that the pub had had hundreds of phone calls from far right extremists, threatening their staff with violence.
Del Boy of the Far Right
He is in no doubt that he is going to prison for these offences therefore he will not be available for the 22nd March. He can then pull out of it claiming that state persecution has messed his demo up and it had to be cancelled, whilst all the time getting talked about and gaining notoriety in the media.
Having said that, with Crown Prosecution Service’s less than successful attempts at bringing him to justice so far, no one really knows what will happen next Monday. If his sentencing is postponed again, there is a very real chance that he will have to go through with it or lose face with his National Action colleagues, who are stupid enough to take this serial con man seriously.
Neither prospect is a good one for him.
Today, Monday the 2nd February, he went before St Albans Crown Court on charges of contaminating goods after allegedly blogging that Tesco’s supermarket was putting customers at risk of Ebola. These charges carry up to ten years in prison in the event of him being found guilty.
He is to reappear for case management on the 5th May with a trial in the summer of 2015.
A final reason why we do not think he has any intention of turning up in London is that there is a White Man March in Newcastle upon Tyne (we kid you not) the day before and most of the racists and neo Nazis have already committed to spending the weekend in a police kettle in the north east and few of them can afford the travel to two marches in the same weekend.
In short, we see Bonehill as a gaffe prone attention seeker who likes to stir up controversy and bring upon himself notoriety. We think that his attention seeking ways will be severely curtailed when he starts to adjust to prison life and there will be no realistic prospect of him putting on this march himself.
Regardless of his liberty, we must all be prepared for the fact that someone more competent than the hapless Bonehill may have the appetite to put on a march in the area at some point and we must all be prepared to remove them from our capital and ensure they fear coming back, much like was done with the English Defence League in Walthamstow.
One thing is for certain, himself and his grubby little mates will get no-where near Hackney on the 22nd March as hundreds of people of all religions, races and nationalities will be out in force to chase them out.
The Guardian: “A Scotland Yard spokesperson said it had received an application for the march but no decision has yet been made about whether it will be authorised, but added that it is unlikely to facilitate an event that would itself facilitate someone breaking the law. Using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or displaying written material with intent to or which is likely to stir up racial hatred can be prosecuted as a criminal offence and attracts a prison sentence of up to seven years.”
