Are Uri Geller's Attempts To Stop Brexit An Abuse Of His Psychic Powers?

Last month television psychic Uri Geller wrote to the British Prime Minister to tell her, "I will not allow you to lead Britain into Brexit."
The angry medium claims he has the right to stop the government going through with Britain's withdrawal from the European Union because he has a British passport, but does that give him the right to change the political course of a whole country?
In 2016, the UK marginally voted to leave the EU and ever since then the British government have been telling us that we are doing just that. So what right does an entertainer have to derail Article 50?
Speaking to Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on ITV's 'This Morning', Uri was explaining his plan to force Theresa May to revoke Article 50 and hold a second referendum, when Holly interrupted with a very valid question. She asked "how ethical is this for you to get inside her head and change her mind? Is that fair?"
Uri said, "maybe you have a point, maybe it's loosely unethical, but I care. I care about the young people." He went on to say that he was going to "brush aside" the ethical hold ups and go through with his plan, and just days later he claimed to have done just that.
Uri once again made headlines when he proudly announced that he had twisted a water pipe causing parliament to flood, which saw the House of Commons shut down for the day, causing minor disruption to the Brexit process.
After a torrent of water pour from through the ceiling, MPs were forced to call it a day, but Uri later tweeted, "yes I did it @HouseofCommons ! I bent the pipes, and I won't apologise, you all deserve it! #brexit".
Prominent British parapsychologist Dr. Ciarán O'Keeffe was quick to reply to Uri's tweet saying, "does this mean @TheUriGeller can be prosecuted under The Criminal Damage Act (1971)? 😉"
Dr. O'Keeffe probably has a point, if Uri is admitting to willingly causing criminal damage to public property, then surely he could be prosecuted for this act. Even if there is no evidence that the pipe bursting was as a result of his telepathic powers, the fact he has confessed to the crime could be enough to press charges.
Uri once famously tried to stop Big Ben at midnight on New Year's Eve 1992 during a live television broadcast. Had his attempted succeeded, this too could have been deemed a criminal act if his psychic vandalism resulted in costs to repair the clock.
If Uri really does have no qualms in performing these "loosely unethical" acts, then let's just hope he isn't planning to use the famous clock tower as a huge psychic aerial, which will rip open a portal to hell and swallow all of the MPs in Westminster.
