The National:

CELEBRITY psychic Uri Geller previously used his telepathic powers to predict Theresa May would become prime minister and his latest trick is to stop Corbyn from replacing her at Downing Street.

The Israeli-born psychic who lives in a mansion in Berkshire, says he will use "telepathic powers" to stop Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister.

Geller, famous for spoon bending with his mind, 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, Geller told the Jerusalem audience: “I have no problem in saying he is an antisemite.

“God forbid if he takes control.”

Geller was asked by Boteach if he thought it would damage his celebrity status if he called Corbyn an antisemite.

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.”

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 Corbyn never became prime minister.

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

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

Uri, 72, spoke about his meeting with Theresa May in 2014 when she was Home Secretary.

He said: “I had taken her out to the garage of my old home to show her how I bent spoons.

“I happened to pull out one that once belonged to Winston Churchill. Then it struck me. I said, ‘Theresa, you will be the Prime Minister’.

“She laughed but I was right. I don’t know if it was intuition, psychic powers or telepathy. This was about two-and-a-half years before it happened.”

It emerged in 2017 that experts at Stanford Research Institute became convinced of Uri’s psychic abilities after performing experiments on him in 1973.

But whether his attempt to keep Corbyn out of Number 10 works is anyone's guess ...
