trying to understand the writer's opinion, to be honest. On one hand he commends the PM for remembering his country is a democracy and that a vote by the people should be the deciding factor.....(now my words here) BUT, the PM's government has been so far left of center that the country's populace is mainly an entitlement population that Greece created and will fail because the government can no longer afford the free ride, and the people are rioting in the streets because he is trying to take it away from him, and if he puts it to a vote, the voters will again try to keep what they have and the Catch-22 bites the country over and over. HOWEVER, IF the PM actually TELLS the people in speeches all over the country what exactly is happening and how their country cannot continue the way it is, perhaps that show of faith in his people will bring the correct results of doing away with the entitlements (or cut back severely), refuse the bailout, bring back their own currency, and start all over again TOGETHER and not at the dictates of other countries.
On the other hand, the writer is telling BO to sit up and take notice but includes this paragraph which appears to be encouraging BO to 'remain true to his left-of-center constituency' which is going to do nothing but bring the same results as Greece.
>Back home, the reason Obama has to fight for re-election is because he
has failed so far to offer any meaningful resistance to the dictates of
the financial establishment and to remain true to his left-of-center
constituency. ....... <

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
