# Lie group action with no slice

Let $x\in M$, $M$ - finite dimensional smooth manifold. Is there an example of a finite dimensional Lie group action on $M$ with no slice at $x$?

The action of $\mathbb{R}$ on $\mathbb{R}^2$ by $(x,y)\mapsto (x,y+ax)$ is also a classic. The y-axis is fixed, but has no slice. –  Ben Webster Jan 13 '13 at 17:03
