Doubts over Conservatives' devotion to inclusivity...

... or at the very least in parts of its Welsh grassroots. Even though the recently selected prospective Conservative candidate for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire in the next Welsh Assembly has no sooner been selected than he mysteriously stands down, the hard question must still be asked - why was he ever selected in the first place? Probably because his odious views on homosexuality are still widely shared is the sad likelihood. I don't quarrel in any way with his right, or that of anyone else, to think as he does, but it is indicative of the changes that are evidently still required within the Conservative Party in some of the kinds of supporters it seems to attract.
