'I do not believe that we should be revoking Article 50' Theresa May speaks after EU agrees plan to delay Brexit

Uri Geller has said he will telepathically stop Brexit if Theresa May refuses to do so.

In an open letter to the prime minister, the illusionist – famed for bending spoons – said he felt “psychically and very strongly” that most Britons did not want the UK to leave the European Union.

He wrote: “I love you very much but I will not allow you to lead Britain into Brexit. As much as I admire you, I will stop you telepathically from doing this – and believe me I am capable of executing it. Before I take this drastic course of action, I appeal to you to stop the process immediately while you still have a chance.”

Geller, who is currently in Israel, used to live in the village of Sonning in Berkshire, which lies in Ms May’s Maidenhead constituency.

In his letter, he said he had known Ms May for 21 years and that she had visited his home.

He added: “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 claimed he is using the power of his mind to ensure that “Jeremy Corbyn never gets the keys to Number 10 Downing Street”.

He wrote: “I will ensure that they bend out of all proportion to ensure that he never takes up residence there.”

After an extension was agreed by EU leaders on Thursday, the UK is due to leave the union on 22 May if Ms May can get MPs to back her withdrawal deal.
