Falling apart at the seams

The government of PASOK seems to have no clear idea of where it wants to take the country.

A number of alarming incidents this past week have demonstrated that there is hardly any unity among socialist officials nor any guidance from Prime Minister George Papandreou.

The constant and public tiffs between ministers, coupled with the unwillingness of other political officials to hammer out solutions to the crucial problems facing the country, are creating the impression of a government that is falling apart at the seams.

The prime minister has once again said that he does not wish to see early elections because that would bring the country one step closer to default.

In any case, Papandreou should attend to his duties, put his government back in order and get his mind off exotic ideas like that of holding a national referendum.

This country has come to an extremely difficult crossroads and it cannot afford a government that is running behind the rapid developments.
