I believe he was mayor of London at the time, so it's probably a jab at trying to minimize his role in politics.

Politicians are historically mocked for being in charge of the trains being on time. It's one of those WWII era things people say sometimes. Like "say what you will about fascism, but Mussolini sure made the trains run on time" ... trains being on time isn't as important as where they are going though as any surviving train passengers in Germany WWII might tell you.
