    when you want to do something to make improvements and the other side is happy to do nothing and has the power to stop anything from happening.

    I see that as the main problem we've had over the last 2 years.  We want something to happen.  The other side doesn't.  We say normally in a compromise both sides give, but in this case there was no compromising.  The country needed movement and the other side held the country hostage to get as little movement as possible.
