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 welcome.
