Celebrity medium Uri Geller has handed a letter addressed to the British Prime Minister exclusively to the Jewish Telegraph. In the note he tells the PM, "I love you very much but I will not allow you to lead Britain into Brexit."
He goes on to say that he will use his psychic powers to stop the UK's withdraw from Europe, "as much as I admire you, I will stop you telepathically from doing this - and believe me I am capable of executing it." So, is the celebrity spoon-bender really capable of single-handily revoking Article 50 with nothing but the powers of his mind?
It doesn't take a lot to answer this question and the answer is clearly no. Why not? For Geller to psychically change the minds of several MPs, including the focussed and driven mind of Mrs May, seems like quite a challenging task. Especially for a man who has publicly announced that he could stop something before and failed.
The last thing he tried to stop wasn't a political event, but Big Ben at midnight on New Year's Eve. He made the attempt in 1992 live on television on 'The Big Breakfast End Of The Year Show'. Uri failed in his attempt and the chimes of the famous clock rang out across London as normal as the nation saw the new year in.
Based on his clock stopping abilities, the prospect of him stopping Brexit seems like an empty threat, but should the PM be scared Uri has given her an ultimatum, "before I take this drastic course of action, I appeal to you to stop the process immediately while you still have a chance."
The Israeli entertainer says that he feels "psychically and very strongly" that most British citizens don't want Brexit to happen, and while May isn't listening to this majority, Uri seems pretty sure he has what it takes to convince her to change her mind. Perhaps he stands more of a chance as they are apparently good friends. Uri's open letter to May starts by saying, "we have known each other for over 21 years. Since you became our PM you visited my house in Sonning, where you also lived."
Perhaps the pair do have a strong psychic link, as according to the letter Uri predicted Mrs May's future, "three years before you became Prime Minister, I predicted your victory when I showed you Winston Churchill's spoon on my Cadillac, which I asked you to touch." He also claims to have predicted that Donald Trump would be elected as the 45th President of the United States.
Geller also says that he'll use his mental abilities to stop Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn ever getting into 10 Downing Street, by literally bending the keys of No. 10 "out of all proportion".
In the letter Uri writes that the powers of his mind have been "proved over and again" and even claims that the CIA have "validated" his abilities. He writes, "the CIA concluded: 'As a result of Geller's success in this experimental period, we consider that he has demonstrated his paranormal perceptual ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner.'"
It is true that Uri was tested by the CIA as part of Project Stargate in 1973. He was asked to take part in a week-long series of bizarre secret experiments. At this point in his career, he was already a well-known performer with the special power of bending spoons with his mind.
As part of the government tests at the Stanford Research Institute, Uri was asked to reproduce pictures that were being drawn by staff in another room. The declassified papers claim that sometimes Uri's attempts were precise and accurate, which lead to the statement about his "paranormal perceptual ability" that Uri quoted in his open letter.
During one test, a random word was picked from a dictionary, the word "fuse". A scientist in a locked room drew a firecracker, when it was communicated via intercom to Uri that the picture was finished, according to the documents "his almost immediate response was that he saw a cylinder with noise coming out of it."
However in a 1982 book, famous skeptic James Randi claims that Uri is a fraud. He wrote that Geller had "tricked even reputable scientists" with tricks that "are the kind that used to be on the back of cereal boxes when I was a kid."
Of course Uri filed a lawsuit against Randi asking for $15 million for slander, but the court dismissed the case and the celebrity spoon-bender had to settle the case at a cost of $120,000.
If you're still thinking that Uri might have it in him to effect the the future of a whole country, then take a look at this spectacular fail on of his on a live television show in 1973.
Since the country voted to leave the European Union in the 2016 referendum, there has been a surge in business owners and worried Brits seeking advice from the psychic community to gain insight into the longterm prospects of the country's future, but psychics have also been making predictions about what our exit from the EU might actually look like.
