Uri Geller claims he swayed UK election result

The celebrity spoon-bender maintains that he used his powers to help Boris Johnson win the general election.
The controversial illusionist, whose psychic feats have often been met with a significant degree of skepticism, recently appeared on UK morning television to claim that he had given Johnson an 'energised' spoon to ensure that his political opponent Jeremy Corbyn wouldn't win the vote.

Brushing aside the highly improbable nature of his claim, the decision to back Johnson is somewhat at odds with a similar stunt he conducted back in March when he tried to encourage people to use 'psychic energy' to stop Brexit - something that Johnson has long been a major proponent of.

"I believe in the powers of my mind, but for me, more important was for Boris to win in a big way to make sure Corbyn would not get anywhere near the government," he said.

"This is no joke, this is real! My energy and the energy of the people of the UK, ensured Boris Johnson's landslide victory, and kept Jeremy away from Number 10."

During the interview, Geller produced a certificate that he claimed the CIA had issued him with as a way of authenticating that he possessed psychic powers.
"Before you take the mickey out of me - because I know this sounds very light-hearted - let me show you and read to you what the CIA's conclusion is about my powers," he said.

"This is 'CIA... As a result of Geller's success in this experimental period we consider that he has demonstrated his paranormal perceptual ability in a convincing and serious manner.'"

When it was pointed out to him that interfering in an election was illegal, Geller replied:

"The big question is - can you prove it? Can you prove that my energy stopped Corbyn and the spoon I gave Boris Johnson made him the Prime Minister in a big way? I believe in it, but can you prove [it]?"

Suffice to say, there is absolutely no evidence to support his claim.

Nope. You’re wrong. I KNOW how the trick is done. There is no hoist, it’s an illusion which only works depending on where the observer is standing. The most mechanical part of this trick is the human ankle.

I can see why you’re saying that because they edit to a shot of the foot but the reality is he could do this trick in front of you and you would swear he appears to float and you wouldn’t have a clue how.

I'm more impressed by Blaine's endurance feats that any of his magic tricks.

NO!  We all know exactly how he does it.  He rises a couple of inches off the ground: I can do it, my kids can do it.  Not as polished as him, true, but just as high. The first and last acts cut back and forth between Blaine's back and the audience.  These are not continuous recordings.  They do not show the audience's reaction to the 'levitation' we are shown.  Blaine might be exposing himself, for all we know - it would better-explain the hysterical overreactions. They even try to trick the viewer by filming a similarly-dressed stooge for the faked lift.  You can see her from 2'12'' to 2'21'... [More]

I will. The Balducci method isn't much of a secret.

Close.  In the version done by Blaine the front half of the bottom of the shoe is cut out leaving enough for his toes to cling to when walking so the shoe doesn't flop around.

Geller needs to explain his reverse ferret on Brexit if he has helped Boris.   "Uri Geller has vowed to "telepathically" stop Brexit" He wrote: "I feel psychically and very strongly that most British people do not want Brexit.  "I love you very much but I will not allow you to lead Britain into Brexit."
