A British councillor has stunned his colleagues by claiming his real mother is a 9 foot green alien with 8 fingers.
Simon Parkes, who was elected as a Labour Party councillor for the Stakesby district of the Whitby Town Council in February this year, has spoken at length on You Tube of his life among extra-terrestrials and his upbringing with an alien Mom, reports the Northern Echo.
Parkes said he first saw an alien at the age of eight months, when “a traditional kite-shaped face”, with huge eyes, tiny nostrils and a thin mouth appeared over his cot.
He said: “Two green stick things came in. I was aware of some movement over my head. I thought, ‘they’re not mummy’s hands, mummy’s hands are pink’.”
He added: “I was looking straight into its face. It enters my mind through my eyes and it sends a message down my optic nerve into my brain.
“It says ‘I am your real mother, I am your more important mother’.”
He said after contracting chicken pox at the age of three, his mother went to work and left him at home to fend for himself when an 8ft “doctor” dressed as a waiter appeared to offer help.
As an 11-year-old, he claims he was taken on a craft by his alien “mother”, and made a deal with the beings on board.
He said: “The reason extraterrestrials are interested in me is not because of my physical body, but because of what is inside me. My soul.”
Councillor Parkes said his extraterrestrial beliefs “did not come up on the doorstep” while he was campaigning recently.
He said: “For many people who don’t experience it, it’s very hard to accept. We are taught to only see and believe what we can touch, but it’s acceptable to believe in religion.
“It’s a personal matter and it doesn’t affect my work. I’m more interested in fixing someone’s leaking roof or potholes. People don’t want me to talk about aliens.
“I get more common sense out of the aliens than out of Scarborough Town Hall. The aliens are far more aware of stuff. People in the Town Hall seem not to be aware of the needs of Whitby.”
Fellow Stakesby ward member and former Mayor of Whitby, Councillor Terry Jennison, said the matter had not been discussed by councillors.
He said: “I am completely in the dark about this.”
In his long (winded) interview, which becomes increasingly bizarre as it goes on, Mr Parkes gives full details (with illustrations) of his upbringing and inter-action with extra-terrestrials and their plans for our future. And I thought Republicans were weird.
