A Labour politician claims he was abducted by extra-terrestrials as a child and that his “real mother” is a 9ft tall alien with eight fingers.
Simon Parkes, a Labour member elected to Whitby town council, recounted his experiences in a video shown on YouTube.
The clip is part of the Anomalous Mind Management, Abductee, Contactee Helpline Project, which encourages people to come forward with their apparently unexplainable experiences.
He speaks of his first encounter which occurred while he in the womb, then tells of a being which appeared by his cot when he was six-months-old and reached out to him with “these two green ‘stick things, like beanpoles’.”
He continued: “I thought, ‘they’re not mummy’s hands, mummy’s hands are pink’, and mummy has thumbs. These are green and pointed and there’s four of them.’
“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, saying 'I am your real mother, I am your more important mother'.”
The 52-year-old described the extra-terrestrial as having “human features” with a kite-shaped face, huge eyes, two tiny holes for a nose and a thin mouth.
He claims to have had another encounter three-years-later, and further experience at the age of 11, where Parkes claims his “real mother” returned to take him on board an alien craft.
He said: “I’m only telling you what I’ve seen, they could be lying to me.
The reason why extra-terrestrials are interested in me is not because of my physical body but what’s inside – my soul.
“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.”
Parkes, who was a councillor in Hackney during the 1990s, said his experiences have not hindered his work.
He said: “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.”
Fellow councillor Terry Jennison told the Yorkshire Post: “I am completely in the dark about this.”
