This may be hard to believe but a city councilman in Whitby, England says he's been having an affair with an alien.

53-year-old, father of three, Simon Parks says the two meet about four times a year.  He and his large, green female space alien known as the Cat Queen get beamed up to the Mother Ship for their dates.   They even have a child together, named Zarka.

We shouldn' t be surprised because Parkes is a mixed-species Human.  He claims his, quote, "real mother" is an alien.  She's nine feet tall, green, and has eight fingers.  One day he expects to be reunited with her on her home planet . . . once the technology is ready to beam him up of course.

And he doesn't believe this alien affair is going to cost him his seat on the city council, because it hasn't affected his work. He just wants to get the whole thing out in the open.

Parkes says,  "There are plenty of people in my position who don't choose to come out and say it because they are terrified it will destroy their careers."

Oh My Gosh!  There are more of them!

What about Mrs Parkes?  Well for now, she is sticking by him.  Parkes says, "My wife was very unhappy, clearly.  That caused a few problems, but it's not on a human level, so I don't see it as wrong."
