A NEWLY-ELECTED Whitby Town councillor believes he has a 9-foot-tall alien ‘mother’ and said that he is often followed by mysterious men in black.
Simon Parkes was elected to the town council in February and claims he has been visited by extra-terrestrial beings throughout his life.
He said: “For many people who don’t experience it’s very hard to accept it.
“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.”
Mr Parkes made the claims on a video posted on www.YouTube.com and he said his first direct encounter with aliens came when he was a six-month-old baby.
“I was in the cot,” he said.
“Two green stick things came in.
“I was aware of some movement over my head and I though ‘they’re not mummy’s hands, mummy’s hands are pink.”
Coun Parkes says he was then picked up by the creature, which was 9ft tall, had huge eyes, two holes for a nose and was wearing a purple cloak.
“I was looking straight into its face,” he said.
“It enters my mind through my eyes and it sends a message down my optic nerve into my brain.
“It says ‘I’m your real mother, I’m your more important mother’.”
Coun Parkes says he then encountered aliens as a three-and-a-half year old, when 8ft tall “doctors” came to see him and armed “human enforcement” officers appeared through his wardrobe.
He goes on to describe “shadow-beings” and other creatures taking the form of cats, owls, circus clowns and policemen.
As an 11-year-old, Coun Parkes claims he was taken on board a craft by his alien “mother” and made an agreement with the beings to gain knowledge about the past and future.
The agreement, according to Coun Parkes, allowed his soul to be transported into extra-terrestrials.
He also says he has been given an insight into the origins of the human race, which he believes was genetically altered by an advanced other-worldly civilisation to “dumb down” the species.
“I’m only telling you what I’ve seen, they could be lying to me,” he added.
“The reason extra-terrestrials are interested in me is not because of my physical body, but because of what is inside me.
“These reptiles are guilty as hell.
“They have apologised several times to me.
“They have said they are sorry for what they have done to your people.”
He added that only last week, a mysterious black car rammed into his on the A64, while he was returning from a meeting with other believers.
“It was a horrendous crash,” he said.
“The black car just zoomed up and rammed me, it went straight into the side of my car.
“The driver walked straight up to me, holding Coca-Cola, and said ‘I’m sorry, I had to do that’.
“I’m lucky to be alive.”
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson confirmed that a four-vehicle pile-up had occurred on the A64 near Tadcaster. The spokesperson said it was caused when a car braked suddenly and that minor injuries were caused.
Coun Parkes, who was a councillor in Hackney during the 1990s and says he often met with Tony Blair, gained 229 votes in the Stakesby by-election and was comfortably elected.
A spokesperson for the town council said: “The residents of Stakesby Ward elected Councillor Parkes democratically through the ballot box to represent them on Whitby Town Council.
“Even though the town council were unaware of Councillor Parkes beliefs, the council do not dictate to anyone what beliefs they should have religious or otherwise.”
