he does get some things right, but he’s still an asshole.

I suppose you have to give credit where it is due, and some of what CaMoron has done in regard to cleaning up politics doesn’t seem too bad. For example, his intention to make government more open by giving the public access to more information appeals to me. We all know that we have to hold government to account, which means having as much access to information as possible. I truly believe in the old saying that ‘knowledge is power’. However. Some of what he intends to do disturbs me: his intention to overhaul the benefit system and try to force people back into work seems frankly draconian. I fear it will cause a shift in attitude towards those of us on benefit, and people will be more likely to look at us as mere work-shy scroungers. That would be exactly what we do not need; nor do we need any social workers coming to call trying to tell us we can do stuff we can’t.
