Kelly talks to Chris McGimpsey, who he describes as a Liberal Unionist, who voices the suspicion amongst Loyalists in North Belfast that “…that there is a Sinn Fein/IRA strategy to expel Protestants from their traditional neighbourhoods and capture Belfast by stealth.”

McGimpsey cites:

“…a succession of bomb scares at the Everton Day Centre on the Crumlin Road that separates Ardoyne from Glencairn and Shankill. He believes that militant republicans are responsible: ‘I think they want to get that school closed down and bulldozed. If they get Catholic houses there, then Protestant Ardoyne would be done. And if you managed to engineer the fall of Protestant Ardoyne, you’d get the Westminster seat.'”
