Two weeks on and we are still none the wiser as to what caused this. People are understandably concerned and simply asking why did a bin lorry drive into crowds of people on a busy shopping street just before Christmas.
Of course we can take an informed guess as “car Jihad” incidents were happening around the same time all across Europe.
So far the police have given no clue at all as to what happened, and Glasgow city council have done nothing to allay suspicion of a cover-up by stating they will withhold the name of the driver and 2 other crew members of the lorry ‘indefinitely’.
The only details coming out so far seem to be from members of the public posting their own images and opinions online.
Many so-called reports from witness accounts have popped up online and even passed as fact to down play the seriousness of this incident, many of these accounts are made-up versions of events to suit a left-liberal agenda which is not to cast the “religion of peace” in a bad light.
The most common detractive comments are that the driver had either a heart attack or seizure, but that doesn’t explain how he was able to steer around the corner into Queen Street and keep a straight line down the pavement over such a long distance without smashing into shops on the left.
Other “witnesses” say they saw the driver slumped over the wheel from the Gallery of Modern Art – some 300 metres away. Perhaps they have binoculars with X-Ray vision?
