Famed mentalist Uri Geller has offered his services to the British government.

"When I heard and read that Don Cummings, who is actually the right-hand man of Boris Johnson ... was looking for extraordinary people with amazing talents, visionaries and weirdos, I said: 'Well, maybe I'm a bit of a weirdo. I will apply,'" Geller said.

"I believe that with my talents, with my skills, with my know-how, with my ability to influence people - and I've done that in the past. I made the Russians sign the nuclear arms reduction treaty. The Americans asked me. The CIA verified and validated my powers. I know I can be a great help to 10 Downing street. There is no doubt in my mind that I might very possibly get a positive response."
