Does anyone remember Harvey?
That was a film released back in 1950. It starred James Stewart as a man who was accompanied everywhere by his great friend Harvey – a six foot invisible rabbit.
It looks like fiction in the course of time has once again become reality. Harvey lives!
I mentioned the other day about our Beloved Leader and how he conveniently met a bloke with a pint in his hand which gave Dame Enda a chance to "prove" that people could afford water charges. It did cross my mind at the time that Dame Enda never ever shows up in public unless it's a photo opportunity, and it was therefore very unlikely that he was mixing with the Common Man, let alone drinking with him in a pub.
I wasn't the only one to notice this apparently.
Harry McGee of the Irish Times also spotted this. Not only that, but he remembered previous occasions where Dame Enda "met a man". It seems he has been meeting that "man" for quite some time.
I would contend that this "man" is in fact an invisible six foot white rabbit called Harvey who conveniently happens to be drinking pints, emigrating or obtaining gainful employment just when Dame Enda wants to make a point about something.
I think they should do a remake of Harvey, with Dame Enda taking over from James Stewart.
God knows, he can keep a straight face while lying through his teeth.
