Uri Geller: 'I can bring only positivity to Downing Street'

Wednesday, January 8, 2020

Uri Geller says he has applied for a position in Downing Street because of the "positivity" he can bring.

The spoon-bending psychic sent off an application after Boris Johnson's most senior aide, Dominic Cummings, called for “weirdos and misfits” to apply for roles in Boris Johnson's administration.

"The word 'weirdo', that's what ignited my imagination," Mr Geller told talkRADIO.

"My contacts internationally are massive... they're mammoth. I have the power and ability to influence people. I can bring only positivity to Downing Street."

He continued: "I can make things happen. I care about the young people in England. I can bring some mega, mega powerful deals to Downing Street and basically strengthen Boris Johnson's role."

Mr Cummings made the call for unusual candidates in an almost 3,000-word job ad posted to his personal blog, asking for "true wild cards" and "super-talented weirdos" to come forward.

He wrote: “We need some true wild cards, artists, people who never went to university and fought their way out of an appalling hell hole”.

Among the jobs up for grabs is a personal assistant to Mr Cummings.

Mr Geller continued: "I will make sure there are no negative thinkers around. I take my hat off to Dom that he used those words because we need people who think out of the box, people who are visionaries and can make things happen."
