There is no doubt that Friday’s bus strike will cause chaos across the State and damage the economy, Shadow Minister for Sustainable Transport Matthew Groom said.
“What we want to see is the Premier and the responsible Minister, Nick McKim, shows some leadership and takes control of the situation. If Mr. McKim is still on holiday, then the Acting Minister, David O’Byrne, must step in.” Mr. Groom said.
“For the Premier and the Minister to go into hiding and suggest it has nothing to do with them is typical of this Government’s inability to make decisions.”
“There is absolutely no reasons why the Minister or the Premier can’t step in, they’re just too weak to.” Mr Groom said.
