Councillor claims mother is green alien
A British town councillor claims his mother is a green alien.
Simon Parkes believes he was abducted by extra-terrestrials on more than one occasion when he was a child because they are interested in what's inside his "soul", and he claims his "real mother" took him onto an alien craft.
The 52-year-old man, who works for Whitby town council in North Yorkshire, believes a 9ft alien stood next to his cot when he was a little one.
He is quoted by the Northern Echo as saying: "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 reason why extraterrestrials are interested in me is not because of my physical body but what’s inside – my soul."
Simon says his beliefs have not interfered with his work, but he prefers to hang out with aliens than anyone at the council.
He added: "I get more common sense out of the aliens than out of Scarborough town hall. The aliens are far more aware of stuff."
