Uri Geller insists he could join Boris Johnson as a Downing Street advisor

Earlier this month Boris Johnson’s close advisor and mastermind behind the Brexit campaign Dominic Cummings, revealed he wanted “weirdos and misfits” to apply for jobs at Downing Street. The announcement sent shockwaves through the British political system, potentially tuning on its head years of civil service standards and protocol.

Applications that have been received by Downing Street include one from the magician and illusionist, Uri Geller.

The British-Israeli became famous for his self-professed ability to bend spoons with his “mind” in the 1970s.

It has since been revealed that Mr Geller had sent an application to work at Downing Street after hearing the news about Mr Cummings’ blog.

Appearing on yesterday evening’s BBC Newsnight, Mt Geller claimed he knew that the government was considering his application.

He said: “Look, there’s no doubt in my mind that thousands of people submitted the application form.

“But, I’m sure I’ll get a response very soon - actually from inside information I know.”

Here, Newsnight’s presenter, Katie Razzall, asked Mr Geller about whether his “supernatural” abilities had helped him in finding out about his imminent success.

She said: “You’re a psychic, what’s your prediction?”
