Israeli mentalist Uri Geller said this weekend that he will use his powers of mind control to prevent Brexit from taking place.

In a letter to Prime Minister Theresa May posted on Facebook on Friday, the Israeli mystifier said he will stop Brexit.

“I feel psychically and very strongly that most British people do not want Brexit,” Geller wrote to May. “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.”

Geller said he first met May more than 20 years ago, soon after she became an MP.

“Before I take this drastic course of action, I appeal to you to stop the process immediately while you still have a chance,” he continued. “Although I currently live in Israel, I am still a British citizen and feel very passionately about the country and the people I came to love.”

Geller also used his open letter to prove his bonafides, telling May he successfully predicted that she would become prime minister and that Donald Trump would become the president of the United States. He also said that earlier this year he vowed to use his powers to prevent Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn from becoming prime minister. “I will ensure that they bend out of all proportion to ensure that he never takes up residence [at 10 Downing Street],” Geller wrote.

He added that his paranormal abilities are “easily verifiable. Just look at the official CIA website.”

On that point, at least, Geller has some backup. The CIA made public in 2016 experiments it conducted on the Israeli mentalist back in 1973. After a series of tests, the CIA concluded that “he has demonstrated his paranormal perceptual ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner.”

Geller can currently be seen as a judge on Israel’s Got Talent, and he is also working on opening a museum later this year in Jaffa about his colorful life. Perhaps before the museum opens he will be able to add “preventer of Brexit” to his resume.
