Isle of Man politician sees Maltese support against bendy buses
The politician fighting the introduction of bendy buses in the Isle of Man believes he has the backing of the Maltese.
“I am pleased to see the residents of Malta have a sensible understanding of the foolish introduction of articulated buses. I only hope that they are not introduced on the Isle of Man as a result,” John Houghton said.
He made headlines last week when he urged members of the Isle of Man’s legislature not to become a laughing stock by introducing bendy buses like Malta.
When told of the response his comments generated among readers of timesofmalta.com, he said: “I wish the people of Malta well in their pursuit of common sense in the future.”
The Isle of Man intends to trial bendy buses. They were first trialled in 2009 but no decision was taken.
