    Question bus que=bus queue?

    Dear Teachers,
    Here is a sentence : I preferred the orderly procession of London bus que.
    Then, bus que=bus queue?
    Thanks.

    Dear Teacher svartnik,
    What you believe "bus que" is "bus queue"? But there is no " que" in my dictionaries. Or "bus que" is an abbreviation of "bus queue"?

    It is bus queue, and not bus que.

    Do "bus que" is a mistaken word? but it was written by a cockney (a Londoner).

    Yes, it is not in keeping with the standard English spelling.
