The third installment of our five-part discussion with Labour councillor Simon Parkes sees him discuss the various civilisations which inhabit our galaxy.
He explains that while some of these creatures are satisfied to merely observe our race, others take a more active role in human development.
Simon also delivers a stark warning about the future of our civilisation.
Coming up tomorrow in the fourth part of our series, Simon discusses how his family have long had close links with alien investigations, as well as the British Secret Service and other clandestine organisations.
