Uri Geller says he will use 'telepathic powers' to stop Jeremy Corbyn becoming PM

Mr Geller also told the audience he once told Theresa May that she would become Britain’s leader


Celebrity psychic Uri Geller, famous for his spoon-bending and mind-reading antics, has said he will use his “telepathic powers” to stop Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister.

The Israeli-born psychic, who lives in a mansion in Berkshire, was speaking on a panel with Roseanne Barr, at an event chaired by American rabbi, Shmuley Boteach.

In answer to a question about the Labour Party leader, Mr Geller told the Jerusalem audience: “I have no problem in saying he is an antisemite.

“God forbid if he takes control.”

Mr Geller was asked by Rabbi Boteach if he thought it would damage his celebrity status if he spoke out by calling Mr Corbyn an antisemite.

Mr Geller said: “I have charisma, if I said it, I would say it in the right way. I would have to say it live on TV in Britain and feel the Jewish people looking at me.”

Mr Geller, who was once the subject of a documentary that claimed he used his telepathic and psychic powers in a number of key CIA operations during the Cold War, said he would make sure Mr Corbyn never became prime minister.

“With all my telepathic powers I am not going to let that happen,” he said.

Ms Barr, whose sitcom Roseanne was revived last year but then cancelled after she tweeted apparently racist comments about an African-American member of the Obama administration, said she would support Mr Geller with “telepathic powers too.”

Mr Geller also re-told the story about how he met Theresa May in 2014 and predicted she would become prime minsiter.

He said Mrs May came to meet him and he showed her his Cadillac covered in spoons, some of which were owned, used or touched by famous personalities.

He said: “I told her to touch Winston Churchill’s spoon. I told her she was going to be prime minister and she laughed.

“It is important that she stays in power because god forbid Corbyn should take her place.”
