A Parliamentary candidate in England dropped out of the race after concerns were raised about her belief in aliens and the paranormal. Banker-turned-author Jill Hughes had been running for a seat in the House of Commons as part of the Brexit Party in an election set to take place next month. However, her campaign came to an untimely end last week following a detailed report from an anti-Brexit advocacy group which took issue with some of her more fantastic beliefs.
Specifically cited was a surprising statement from the acknowledgments section of her 2018 book Spirit of Prophecy. In it, Hughes wrote that "the ETs, some of them less than apple pie wholesome or positive pumpkins, are already here working with our world governments, but that's all hush-hush for now." Additionally, an author profile on Amazon for Hughes declares that she "believes in elves/fairies/mermaids/unicorns and all things Elemental and Other Worldly." It also claims that the aspiring Parliamentarian has had "numerous prophetic premonitions" often surrounding death and is a believer in reincarnation.
