In a guest interview on Desert Island Discs on Sunday, Mayor of London, Boris Johnson revealed that he may have had an alien encounter after crop circles were discovered in his hair last summer.
In a shock revelation he told presenter, Kirsty Young that it could have been extra-terrestrial activity that triggered the extra-marital activity which led him to be booted out of the family home for a short time in 2010.
After selecting Frank Sinatra’s ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ he suddenly opened up to the presenter, “I’ve never believed in UFO’s or all that little green man nonsense. But after napping off in my hammock last July and waking up with a blistering headache and a sore rectum I’m converted. Marina passed me her compact mirror and I was astounded to see a large scorch mark surrounded by three perfect circles bang in the middle of my thatch.”
He went on to report his experience to MI5 who advised him to “keep the lid” on the incident until proper investigations took place. He was subsequently given a series of physical and psychological tests. “I politely refused the anal probe,” he told Kirsty Young “on the grounds that the aliens may have already explored that region. But I was happy to brace myself for a couple of electric shocks to the temple area.” Although scientists drew a blank they confirmed to him that the visitation could have accounted for his out of character behaviour.
A spokesman for MI5 has spoken since the transmission, “If this was an alien encounter then they may have been searching for intelligent life but for some reason they quickly abandoned their mission, perhaps it was due to high congestion charges.”
Mr Johnson was unavailable for comment today but a spokesman said that he was attending an interplanetary video conference at the Greenwich Observatory.
