One message in particular came from a UFO researcher in Victoria, Australia, sent in March 2009, addressed directly to “Your Majesty Queen Elizabeth II”.The message started by saying that: “I am writing to you to inform you Madam that the British Government continues to refuse to reveal the truth behind their files and reports of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs).He continued to insist that there were more to UFOs than “weather balloons, airplanes, helicopters, lights, or natural phenomena.” He claimed to try to contact various UK government departments, from the RAF, MoD to MI5, to convince them of the gravity of the situation. He added, “As I am writing this letter to you Your Majesty, I contemplate whether or not you will see reason and if you will choose to act Madam? As a UFO researcher, I must highly recommend you act now Your Majesty. You are capable of deciding your own destiny. The question is Your Majesty, which path will you choose? I await your immediate action and response to this serious UFO issue. I have the honour to be, Madam, Your Majesty’s humble and obedient servant.”
Buckingham Palace replied as follows: “Although this is not a matter in which Her Majesty would intervene, the letter has been passed to the Secretary of State for Defence, so that this approach to the Queen may be known and consideration given to the points raised in the letter.”
Also, the MoD replied that, as important as the defense of UK airspace was, there was no evidence that the UFOs were a threat to national security.
Of course, as anyone who’s read Roald Dahl’s work knows, there’s a very simple protocol for getting the Queen involved in paranormal matters:
- Hack into her brain while she’s asleep and give her a nightmare about aliens.
- Break into her bedroom while she’s asleep, and when she wakes, talk about the dream and the reality behind it.
- Take care of the threat.
- Create a giant omlet.
Another letter, written to Gordon Brown in 2008, said: “Following the release of the UFO files by the Ministry of Defence, does the prime minister now feel it is time to take a more active role in this subject. I don’t believe a prime ministerial position in Britain is enough to have knowledge of extra terrestrial life etc but feel that now public interest in this subject is at an all time high it would be a good time to show more governmental involvement, thus inspiring the electorate and winning the hearts and minds of the public.” It also advised the PM to handle it professionally, lest the UK become a laughingstock.
This release comes on the heels of an interview by Simon Parkes, a councillor for Stakesby in Whitby on Channel 4 that he has been carrying on an affair with extra-terrestrials for several decades. I could tell you more, but I fear that Jonathan would not approve; the details are too disturbing. All I have to say about that is that I wish more American politicians were this bonkers. It would make C-Span more interesting.
