Two green stick things came in. I was aware of some movement over my head. I thought, ‘they’re not mummy’s hands, mummy’s hands are pink’. 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. It says ‘I am your real mother, I am your more important mother’.
Whilst I don't necessarily agree with the whole contactee premise, I think it's essentially a belief and one that is held as dearly to the beholder as many a religious belief. So with this in mind I personally don't think it's entirely ethical (morally or otherwise) to allow a personal belief -however outlandish or outrageous- that doesn't hurt anyone and doesn't adversely affect their working life to be used as a determining factor to pre-judge an individual on their suitability for employment, and especially not if it's employment in a position they have filled prior to this with no problems.
Considering Parkes is a public figure then I don't believe for one second he was naïve enough to expect that there would be no backlash for his comments as sooner-or-later some kind of media attention was inevitable, perhaps not nationally like it transpired, but inevitable nonetheless. I won't even guess at his reasons for doing so but I'm sure he believed they were good ones…
Anyway, as already mentioned this all stems from four YouTube videos featuring a very sincere and (dare I say it) endearing Parkes in a personal one-on-one discussion with the host, "Joanne Summerscales". Parkes also shares some of the artwork and notes he has created over the years, artwork which details his extraterrestrial encounters and all of which at times makes the interview interesting if nothing else:
Here's the first YouTube video (of four) and the one I grabbed the above images from:
Simon Parkes discusses his highly detailed and complex contacts with Extra & Interdimensional beings called Mantis, and the Greys and Reptilians. In Part 1 of this highly detailed interview on Mantis Alien contactee Simon Parkes, we discuss the details of his early life with Reptilians, Greys and the Mantis nonhuman extra-dimensional beings.
Is it a massively implausible story containing -what I personally perceive as- factual impossibilities?
Sure, but that goes with the territory.More importantly and the real issue here is there anything contained therein that could affect his ability and/or prevent him from performing work-related tasks?
Not that I could see.....
(Audio from 5Live Breakfast - April 2012)
Scarborough councillor Simon Parkes says a 9ft alien claims to be his mother. Cllr Parkes told 5 live Breakfast that he has been visited hundreds of times by aliens since he was a child.
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. ~ Councillor Simon Parkes
