Not only Count Dracula and other macabre and gloomy people are attracted by Whitby, but according to the issue of the Fortean Times mentioned in my former post, extraterrestrial phenomena have also been observed in that portal town. A Labour politician and town councillor, Simon Parkes, claims to be the son of a green alien (!) and to have had no less than hundreds of close encounters with extraterrestials!
'I get more common sense out of the aliens than out of Scarborough Town Hall,' Parker says. Listen to him telling about his experiences in the youtube video below. Mind you, it goes on for over an hour, if you have time for that (I only listened to the beginning). Maybe you will end up agreeing with another viewer: 'Kudos to him for being honest. He's simply confirming what most of us have always known to be true. That all politicians live on a different planet.'
I have never visited Whitby. Now, I am no longer sure if it is safe to visit the place :-)
