He was charged with causing death by driving while uninsured but the charges were dropped.

whilst the reasons for the mass increase in acid attacks are pretty straightforward and transparent the same cannot be said for the Glasgow Bin-Lorry-Bollox.
However, it has been quite an enlightening week this week thus far and to explain why we need to go back to a fake event that occurred in Glasgow in 2010.
Now I did cover this event in Behind the Flag Part 2 – my second installment of the Glasgow Bin-Lorry-Bollox.
And if memory serves a lot of readers were unconvinced that the alleged accident was nothing more than an… Errr… Accident:
However, I still believe wholeheartedly that it wasn’t an accident. Moreover, I feel it is now time to pay the hoax a revisit.
Now, according to the MSM 20 year old Laura Stewart was allegedly killed along with her friend 18 year old Mhairi Convy when a Range Rover driven by a mush named William Payne ran them over in Glasgow city centre.
The following is from from the BBC in June 2014, some three and a half years following the ‘accident’ and I have highlighted in yellow what I consider to be the important bits:
A man whose car mounted a pavement in Glasgow killing two students has been accused of lying and being reckless for not disclosing he suffered blackouts.
William Payne appeared as a witness at an inquiry into the deaths of Mhairi Convy, 18, and Laura Stewart, 20, in Glasgow on 17 December 2010.
The 53-year-old refused to answer some questions after being advised he did not have to if it may incriminate him.
A previous criminal case against Mr Payne was dropped by the Crown.
Following this, the fatal accident inquiry was then arranged to look at the circumstances of the deaths of Ms Convy and Ms Stewart....faced a series of questions from Dorothy Bain – the QC representing the families of the two women – but he refused to answer many of them.
Ms Bain still quizzed him on the renewal of an HGV licence in July 2010 – five months before the accident. The QC said the “no” box was ticked on a document asking if Mr Payne had suffered any blackouts in the last five years.
However, the court heard a number of claims Mr Payne had collapsed during that time – including once while taking his dog to the vet.
Ms Bain accused Mr Payne of being “totally and utterly unreliable about his medical history”.
She went on: “If you had answered ‘yes’ (on the document), you would not have been allowed to drive.
“You were reckless to the safety of other people using the streets because as we have seen today you are just looking out for number one.
“That should be your mantra – number one, that is what matters.”
Mr Payne replied: “I don’t want to answer that.”
The QC also said: “Your selfishness has taken the lives of two young women. What more serious thing has happened to you.
“Two young women perfectly innocently going out doing their Christmas shopping.
“You could have prevented that by telling the truth.”
Mr Payne again replied he could not answer what was put to him.
The QC later referred to Mr Payne’s police interview after the accident in which he claimed he was “sorry”.
Ms Bain said to Mr Payne: “You could have been stopped driving in the July. Do you know what would have happened?
Source QC representing the two families was also the QC who represented the Morton ‘family’ in the Bin-Lorry-Bollox at the inquiry held just a couple of months ago.
And that of course would be the why the line of questioning put to the drivers, Willie Pain and Harry O Clarke by Dotty Bain was more or less the same in both inquiries
The driver of the bin lorry that careered out of control killing six people in Glasgow has refused his ‘last chance’ to say sorry to the victims’ families for the ‘lies he told about his health’.
Harry Clarke, 58, was told to ‘think of someone other than himself’ and imagine his daughter had died in the tragedy after repeatedly evading questions on his 30-year history of ill health.
Lawyers for victims’ families blamed the driver for the crash by failing to tell doctors and employers about suffering from blackouts, dizzy spells and fainting before the December 22 tragedy.
Dorothy Bain QC, representing the family of victim Jacqueline Morton, accused him of telling a ‘pack of lies’ on job applications and DVLA forms in order to keep his HGV licence at the inquiry today.
The inquiry is being held after prosecutors said there was no evidence to warrant criminal proceedings.
It will focus on driver Mr Clarke’s medical background, his fitness to hold a licence and his employment record and training.
He fell unconscious at the wheel, and was only diagnosed with heart problems after the crash.Source
Ms Bain also referred to a blackout the driver had at the wheel of a First Bus, saying: ‘If you had told the truth in 2010, there is every likelihood the six innocent people who lost their lives would still be here today.’
‘You took a chance and it’s taken the lives of six innocent people. The difference between you and them is that you had a choice and they didn’t. They had no chance.’
Ms Bain said the blackout only came to light in February when a professor checked his medical records. Source....
In fact Willie Pain had been charged in November 2012 with causing the deaths of Stewart & Convy whilst driving without insurance but if Pain had no insurance ... However, that still isn’t the half of it, since the ‘accident’ happened right before Christmas and in the same area as the Bin-Lorry-Bollox and the Clutha Hoax.
And it is worth bearing in mind that Glasgow is a big city; it isn’t a little town.
