Labour councillor: 'my mother is an alien'

Councillor Simon Parkes has made the bizarre claim that his biological mother is an extraterrestrial.

Parkes stunned his colleagues with the revelation that he believes he first encountered aliens at the age of 8 months and that one of them told him telepathically that it was his mother. "Two green stick things came in," he said. "I was aware of some movement over my head. 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. "

Parkes also claims to have been taken on board an alien spacecraft at the age of 11 but insists that his beliefs don't at all interfere with his duties and responsibilities as councillor.

"Councillor Simon Parkes, who was elected to represent Stakesby ward on Whitby Town Council last month, said although he has had hundreds of close encounters with extra-terrestrials, it will not interfere with his mission to help residents at the seaside resort."

Would you be happy to have this guy representing you on a town council ? ha ha unbelievable....Mr Chairman I propose we put a seachlight on top of the town hall to attract U.F.O,'s which will bring trade to the town....ha ha ha ..Did the people really elect him ? Did he suggest that did he? No? Ok then, good post. I hope no one here sees any credibility in this morons claims. I consider myself pretty open-minded, but this guy is a loon, plain and simple. This guy might be the next leader of a new Heavens Gate cult. I'm sure all of you remember what happened to them? Plus, the fact that he is a... [More]

Just as well Whitby isn't a major city then...its just home to Dracula. Though the North East coast was a UFO 'hot spot' not so long ago...allegedly. Anyway - I doubt this loon will submit to DNA testing and I find it odd that none of his biological mother's genetic traits (which seem very conspicuous) made it through into him. Politicians should stay as far away from humour as they do from the truth...this isn't a funny April Fool's at all.

Gary is an interesting case. On one hand, It's a pretty plausible story to create to try and play down his actions. Not from an IT point of view. The first and most basic rule every admin knows and practises (which he claimed to be) is backup and then backup. He did not do this. If he really did have one little thing that could have saved his nads, it would have been on several servers in other countries. Easy to do. Also it would be a snap to search his aches on his ISP's and prove him right - if that had been the case. He just trusted the UFO community to back him is all. On the other hand, ... [More]

I don't know what to think of him... On one hand O.K. abductions happen all the time but there's that other part of me that says What the He!! is the matter with this guy.

I don't know what to think of him... On one hand O.K. abductions happen all the time but there's that other part of me that says What the He!! is the matter with this guy. Abductions do happen frequently, but personally I honestly believe that beings from other planets are about the last likely culprit.

That will be up to his countrymen I think, The threat is there, bit it has been just a threat for many years. I think he is just being held up as an example as to how bad things can go if you break and enter a government department. The admins he got past should probably be no more than one step behind him in a perfect world. I do not think he will end up in Guantanamo. True, doesn't seem to stop many people though does it! Actually, I feel Lost Shaman has the best hypothesis going, in that it was an Intelligence Operation to keep the public and media away from the phenomena whilst the USAF st... [More]

True, doesn't seem to stop many people though does it! You know that is an excellent point. Whilst many authorities put measures in place as a deterrent, there is always one who will break that deterrent. Makes one think. Just what does work? Phenomena or staged crash? Make up your mind Mr.Ambiguous! (I'm assuming If It's phenomena It can't be staged, otherwise It wouldn't be phenomena). Did I say Roswell was natural phenomena? If I did sorry, I do not subscribe to that at all, I think the debris field is superfluous and may or may not have existed. The majority of the "information" I find ste... [More]
