Check for something simple, like a stop/tail bulb filament failing and arcing from brake to tail, also if you have a trailer plug make sure it hasn't been damaged, the wires could be shorting inside the plug.

I would also say poor earth but that shouldn't cause the brake light to come on bright with parkers, quite the opposite.

Could be many other things too, but these couple are easy to check.

Lacking sleep otherwise I could think of other things to check.

it appears as if the leads for your brake lights are somehow connected or touching those of the parkers. check your bulbs in the boot to see if any globe connections are shorting out
