London Mayor Boris Johnson poked fun at the Maltese who bought London's bendy buses, saying he's happy to see the back of them and are now congesting Maltese roads.
During the Conservatives party conference, the outspoken mayor was quoted in the Guardian saying that he kept the promise to remove the bendy buses from London and are "now clogging up the streets of Malta." He added that these were replaced with "the cleanest buses in Europe". He added that the buses now in Malta were "jack-knifed diplodocus".
Johnson insinuated that he managed to lump the buses to the Maltese and is glad to not see them anymore in London.
The Ministry for Infrastructure, Transport and Communications, under Austin Gatt, issued a press release criticising the London Mayor's comments.
In the official press release, Gatt's ministry blasts the mayor for his comments and embarrassingly gets his name wrong, criticising "Mayor Johnston's" comments in reference to Mayor Johnson.
