Uri Geller claims he flooded the House of Commons by using his mind to bend 'the pipes'

Uri Geller has claimed that he flooded the House of Commons yesterday using the power of his mind.

Yes, you absolutely 100 per cent read that correctly and no, someone hasn't slipped something suspicious into your cornflakes this morning.

MPs were forced to end proceedings early on Thursday after torrents of water began pouring through the ceiling, provoking many to joke on Twitter that the entire British establishment is quite simply crumbling away.

Taking to Twitter, Geller, who is famed for his alleged ability to bend spoons with his mind, claimed responsibility for the leak, saying:

Yes, I did it @HouseofCommons!

I bent the pipes, and I won’t apologise, you all deserve it! #brexit#startfromscratch

In an attempt to add more evidence to his claim, he also posted another follow-up tweet, which purports to show him discovering a leak at the Uri Geller Museum in Jaffa, Israel.

In the tweet, he posted a video of himself fixing the pipe and wrote:

This is the pipe that I discovered was leaking yesterday at around 12:40 UK time in the coffee shop of the Uri Geller Museum.

I had to remove a stone to get to it. This is me filming it. This is when I got the idea!PARLIAMENT! I can’t sack them but I can soak them.

Righty ho, Geller. Whatever you say, mate.

Needless to say, the claim caused a lot of hilarity on Twitter.

Some thought it would have been even more impressive if he'd made the claim before the pipes burst.

Others weren't convinced.

Some asked for his salvation.

And the inevitable 'Guy Fawkes' comparisons came rolling in.

The occasional person wondered whether Geller was feeling ok.

But most thought the whole thing was hilarious.

This isn't the first time Geller has attempted to intervene in the Brexit process.

Last week, he sent an open letter to Theresa May in which he claimed he would stop Brexit 'telepathically'.

In the letter, 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.

As much as I admire you, I will stop you telepathically from doing this - and believe me I am capable of executing it.
