The Inner Planets as Gas Giant Ejecta?

Once again quoting from James Hogan's Web Site....
Another aspect that I'm very interested in is hypotheses on minor planets
being ejected from the gas giants. Apparently, in the early 60's, the British
astronomer W.H. McCrea published a study stating that the inner planets
couldn't have formed via the standard textbook accretion model because of
tidal disruption by Jupiter; and R.A. Lyttleton, also British, concluded from
fluid dynamical considerations that Jupiter's core must go unstable and
fission periodically, ejecting excess mass. Again, more background and details
