Uri Geller applies for Dominic Cummings 'misfits and weirdos' job vacancy
Uri Geller has offered his pyschic services to the Government in response to Dominic Cummings call for "misfits and weirdos" to come and work for the Prime Minister.
The Number 10 guru might be regretting his call for people with "unusual" qualities to come and work for him after receiving a formal application from magician Uri Geller.
The former TV star is best known for his spoon bending act but has also has made repeated claims that he has been endowed with powerful "pyschic abilities" by aliens.
In the cover letter sent to Downing Street, Mr Geller suggests his entertainment career was a "perfect mask" for undercover work with the CIA and FBI, and claimed he had used his "genuine" powers to help erase floppy disks being carried to Moscow by KGB agents.
It comes after the PM's chief adviser took to his personal blog to appeal for "super-talented weirdos" to apply for the roles.
He wrote: "We need some true wild cards, artists, people who never went to university and fought their way out of an appealing hell hole, weirdos from William Gibson novels like that girl hired by Bigend as a brand 'diviner' who feels sick at the sight of Tommy Hilfiger or that Chinese-Cuban free runner from a crime family hired by the KGB."
A source close to the psychic told the Telegraph: "Uri is 100 per cent serious about taking up a role in Government.
"He concedes that his application might be one of the more unusual received by Dominic Cummings, but hopes that he can see the potential value of having Uri on board.
"He is particularly keen on using his powers to tackle growing tensions in the Middle East."
The former TV star has repeatedly claimed to have used his "powers" to influence British politics, suggesting he had used his "pyschic" powers to ensure Boris Johnson became Prime Minister, but said he was also preparing to bend all the keys to Number 10 if Jeremy Corbyn had won a majority.
The wacky illusionist also threatened former Prime Minister Theresa May with his telepathic powers in an effort to stop Brexit.
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."
Start as you mean to go on. With total and utter bewilderment.
