Fancy a conspiracy theory? Take your pick

A car appears on the Shankill Road and leaflets are thrown from it naming many dissenting republicans, it happens at the junction of Lanark Way leading into Republican West Belfast.

Some suggest the names may have been gathered by a ‘republican’ group and delivered direct to loyalists in the crudist of fashions.
