Town councilman believes his mother is an alien; says it doesn’t affect his job

My ‘mother’ is a 9ft green alien, says councillor.

Simon Parkes, who was elected to Whitby Town Council in February as a Labour Party candidate and may stand for Scarborough Council, claims he has a 9ft tall green “mother” and has been visited by extra-terrestrial beings throughout his life.

He says he has also been the subject of “horrific” alien operations, and had an implant put into his hand by the creatures.

As the first of many unusual claims Cllr Parkes makes on a video on YouTube, he says he can recall seeing a kite-shaped face when he was a foetus in the womb.

He goes on to say that the first direct encounter he recalls with an alien came when he was a six-month-old baby.

Speaking to the Evening News, Cllr Parkes said that his close encounters do not affect his work as a town councillor and claimed his extra-terrestrial beliefs “did not come up on the doorstep” while he was campaigning for the Whitby Town Council seat in the Stakesby ward.

“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.”

He remembers things from the womb and a direct encounter at 6 months old? Hmm, people don’t gain long term memory until roughly the age of 3-4. It’s physically and mentally impossible for Parkes to remember anything from the age of 6 months, let alone things from the womb. That is just the first of claims I’d be skeptical about…

At least the aliens aren’t affecting his work but what about his tendency to believe irrational things? That’s a bit concerning.

    Unfortunately we all have Cllrs like that. Even more unfortunately we have MPs who are more alien to our culture & beliefs than most of the Sci-fi creatures from Mars etc.
