My proposal for the (apparently inevitable) statue for Captain Tom is a tiny old naked man on top of large golden waves.
The waves symbolise the money flowing out of necessary public services into rich people's pockets.
The tiny man symbolises charity fundraisers everywhere. His size symbolises how much impact he can have compared to political defunding.
His nakedness symbolises the vulnerability neoliberalism leaves us all in.
Of course, since this would be a public art project, there should be some bidding and a civic body to oversee it. I propose putting Dido Harding in charge. Since many localities might want statues, they should be given a national budget. Probably about £34million should cover it.
