Minister For Transport Shane Ross should avoid his Twitter mentions this morning

What. A. Day.

With the picketers from Bus Eireann showing up at 4am outside bus and train stations around the country, they've effectively brought all of Ireland to a standstill.

The only form of public transport that wasn't directly effected was the Luas, and even that experienced technical problems on the Green Line between Beechwood and Stephen's Green.

So, naturally, at a time like this, we look to our leaders.

Or more specifically, the Minister for Transport Shane Ross, who didn't take long this morning to react to the day's proceedings.

Speaking to Morning Ireland on RTE Radio One this morning (via Irish Examiner), Ross said that he was disgusted by the unjustified and unfair actions taken this morning, and urged the parties involved in the strike to get together and work out a solution as soon as possible.

However, he reminded listeners that he would not intervene in an industrial relations dispute, stating that "It would be illegal for me to give state aid."

Twitter, being Twitter, responded.
