Ask no questions…Jacqui Deevoy on abuse received since investigating Nicola Bulley case

Jacqui Deevoy is a freelance journalist, producer and presenter. She’s worked for national newspapers and magazines for over three decades but, these days, focuses mainly on stories that the mainstream media refuse to publish. Catch her chat show every Friday at 7pm on Unity News Network.

The abuse I’ve had on social media for even questioning whether she’s real and not just the A.I. face of a sinister government campaign has been incredible. Tweeting about it heralded the launch of a massive bot and troll attack. I’m unkind, lacking in empathy, heartless, a ghoul (the bots love that one). I’ve been sworn at, called names, had words hurled at me that I’m sure I’d be banned for using… it’s really been quite a maelstrom, a whirlpool of virtual violence!

I was kind of expecting that but I was also expecting a few people to come forward with some proof that she’s real. In that one thread (which has now had 730k views), a few people mentioned that they knew her indirectly: they’d worked for her; they knew a mechanic who said he’d fixed her car; their cousin was a close friend of hers. A friend told me he used to play golf with a man whose wife used to know her. A FB follower said a friend of hers used to work with her sister. This may all be true of course but where’s the evidence? 

If I went missing, hundreds of people could easily prove I existed. There are photos of me with friends, videos galore, messages, email conversations, a whole ton of tangible evidence that I wasn’t invented. If my story made it into the papers (and chances are it wouldn’t as 99.99% of missing person cases never do), a multitude of people could vouch for my existence, many of whom would be interviewed for follow-up stories. That’s not happened with Nicola though. 

We’re now told that her body has been found. Newspaper readers around the world hungrily gobble up every crumb of the trail that’s been set out for them, not realising they’re being force-fed, not asking for a second whether the stories they’re reading are truth or fiction. 

As a writer of short stories (and a novel) and after an eight-year stint as a fiction editor on a national magazine (albeit a long time ago), I’m very familiar with made-up stories. And I feel I’ve been reading a lot lately. What’s missing from every single one of them though is evidence. 

If you insist on believing the mainstream narrative, however, there are so many unanswered questions. I’m sure you’ve even wondered about some of them. Questions such as these, for example: 

  1. Why do so many of NB’s photos look photoshopped?
  2. Why do her selfies look so professional?
  3. Why is she wearing the exact same expression with her head in the exact same pose in so many of the pictures?
  4. Why does her face look like an A.I. image - see
  5. Why is there only one bit of cctv footage of her?
  6. Why is the cctv footage such bad quality?
  7. Why can’t we see her face in any of the cctv footage?
  8. Why were other people caught on cctv on the route she allegedly took but Nicola wasn’t? 
  9. Why were the cctv cameras at the caravan site she was said to have walked past out of action on that day?
  10. Why did the story about her phone keep changing? (We were first told it was found on the ground two feet away from the bench, then later it was reported that it was found ON the bench.)
  11. Where was her dog’s lead? And why was it’s harness removed?
  12. Where were her footprints? 
  13. Why did the man who claimed to find her phone later say he didn’t find it and that Penny from the caravan site found it.
  14. Why did he say he didn’t give his name to the police but was then happy to be interviewed by Sky News’ Kay Burley when she “bumped into” him a couple of weeks later?
  15. Why did Nicola’s partner Paul look like he was acting in every interview he’s done? Why did he not appeal directly to his missing partner during the interviews? Why did he show no emotion? Why did he keep smiling?
  16. Why, when a talent agency advertised a role for a bearded man for a TV campaign, did a friend of Paul’s tag Paul? 
  17. Is the bit-part actress Emma White Nicola’s only friend? (She’s done numerous interviews but no other friends have.
  18. Why was NB’s FB account left public for so long? And why was it only set up in 2022? 
  19. Why does she follow only 20 people on Twitter and why were many of those people alternative ‘awake’ types who were questioning current narratives and were deemed ‘anti vaxxers’ and cranks by the majority?
  20. Where’s the proof the police found a body? And where’s the proof that it was Nicola? 

Dare ask even one of these questions on social  media and you’ll face the wrath of thousands. And these questions are just the tip of the ice-berg, a mere 20 of hundreds. I’m sure you can add several more to my list. Whatever you do though, do NOT ask them out loud. And don’t even THINK about sharing them on social media unless your particularly thick-skinned. (I’m like a rhino in armour these days!)

But - hang on a minute - what’s wrong with asking questions? It’s not only in my nature to be enquiring and inquisitive, it’s also what I do for a living. I nosey about, probe, investigate. I’ve not been commissioned to write about the Nicola Bulley case for any mainstream newspaper (as if!) but the journalists who have been are also under attack. 

Who remembers the days when journalists knocked on doors, asked uncomfortable questions, chased people down the street in an effort to get a story and reveal the truth? Who remembers when journalists were like the pesky kids in Scooby Doo, the ones that ignored what they were being told and went off-track to do their own investigations? So many films and Netflix series are based on these kinds of premises. And the renegade reporters were cheered on and hailed as heroes when the truth was finally revealed. But that’s the stuff of Hollywood and TV drama. It’s fiction. In real life, these days, it’s very different. Anyone - and that includes journalists - who knocks on a door or make a phone call to possible witnesses or potential perpetrators are metaphorically shot down. (I’m thinking now that one day it won’t be metaphorical.) 

ITV and Sky News aren’t my favourite organisations and the people who work for them aren’t my favourite kind of people but it seems the anger of the nation has descended upon them and the public is lambasting them from all angles. All because they’re doing their jobs. 

It’s almost 40 years since George Orwell’s book ‘1984’. When we first read it, we didn’t believe it was prophetic. It was a horror story, a fantasy, a tale of a dystopia we believed would never become a reality, of a future where everyone was forced to fall in line and ask no questions. We didn’t think for a second we would ever live in such a world, a world where asking questions is practically a crime.

Yet here we are.

How do I increase my self-worth? Become more confident with these self-love tips

As Richard Grannon says in the Ickonic Original ‘Portrait of a Narcissist’, we all have narcissistic traits.

Those with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, however, tend to have grown up in an environment where love was given conditionally - that is to say, in response to their achievements. As a result, their sense of self-worth is attached to how much of a success they are perceived to be, by others. Victims of narcissism, in relationships, tend to become hooked on the poisonous bond due to being ‘love-bombed’ by the narcissist. 

This makes them feel wonderful, and they end up thinking that this feeling comes from the narcissist, who is seen as the source of pleasure.

In both cases, the individual has exhibited unhealthy reliance on external validation.

Learning to increase self-worth would greatly benefit both the narcissist and their victim.  

So we’ve put together a handy guide to boosting your self-image to help increase your enjoyment of daily life and provide protection in case of potential dangers of narcissism either from within or without…

If you’ve ever said to your...
