Hypnosis: Keith works on Now You’re Back In The Room
“There’s a lot of different styles of hypnosis. There’s conversational hypnosis which even though we joke about it, politicians use conversational hypnosis,” he told the Irish Daily Mail.
“I’ve been hired back at home in Ireland by certain politicians to assist them in specific language patterns that will just tip people over into their, you know, into their zone.
“So politicians use conversational hypnosis, the instant induction hypnosis but you have to find the right subject. It wouldn’t work on 100 people but then it might work on just one person.”
The publication contacted spokespeople for Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin and Labour who all said they had no knowledge of anyone in their parties ever hiring Keith.
