Adair consolidating power base

According to the subscription only Irish News, things in the Lower Shankill are on the move again:

“Former UDA ‘brigadier’ William ‘Winkie’ Dodds was among six families who left Belfast’s lower Shankill estate yesterday under armed police guard. Adair and Dodds, who was the UDA’s west Belfast brigadier until he suffered a stroke two years ago, fell out after Adair expelled the UDA leader’s brother-in-law William ‘Mugsy’ Mullan over a row about money. Among the 50 loyalists who helped move the families into houses on the White City estate were UDA leader John Greg and senior loyalists Andre Shoukri, Tommy Kirkham, Frankie Gallagher and Sammy Duddy.”
