Uri Geller is not a fan of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. So much so that he is willing to use all of his ‘telepathic powers’ to stop him from ever becoming Prime Minister.
The 72-year-old Israeli illusionist and friend of the late Michael Jackson made this bold claim before an audience in Jerusalem, Israel.
According to The Jewish Chronicle Geller said he believes Corbyn to be anti-Semitic.
“I have no problem in saying he is an anti-Semite. God forbid if he takes control. God forbid he takes control,” Geller said.
Speaking on a panel organised by American rabbi, Shmuley Boteach alongside controversial comedian Roseanne Barr he went on to say he would make sure Corbyn would never become PM.
“With all my telepathic powers I am not going to let that happen,” he declared.
Barr, whose revival of 90’s comedy Roseanne was revived as The Conners, but fired her after she published apparently racist tweets, added that she would also user her ‘telepathic powers too’ to stop Corbyn reaching 10 Downing Street.
Geller said that he had accurately predicted current PM Theresa May would become Prime Minister.
He explained that May lived near his former Berkshire estate, and he invited her over to see his collection of spoons.
“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.”
Geller rose to fame in the 1970s when he began appearing on British television demonstrating his illusions, his most famous illusion being the apparent ability to bend metal spoons.
He was also a close friend of the late Michael Jackson, but they fell out after he introduced him to journalist Martin Bashir, who hosted the controversial documentary Living with Michael Jackson in 2003.
