The statue will stand on a one-metre high plinth with space for flower bouquets and will show the Commander thumping his chest in triumph at defeating the naysayers and neocolonialists of Kapiti.

Top Guru fan Louisa Carroll says, “It’s magnificent; many thousands of tourists will come to Paraparaumu Beach to express their admiration of the Great Dictater and pose for selfies. What ratepayers could begrudge the cost of such a monument to our hero? Divert funds for the Gateway to this true Tourist Mecca of tomorrow! The statue shall be the Gateway — not only to Kapiti, but to heaven itself.”
