Ditch the racist, homophobic, creationist, climate change-denying dominionists: inclusive, secular conservatism is the only option for Grand Old Party, says Adrian Tippetts

The recriminations and post mortems are in full swing. At least Newt Gingrich has the honesty to admit being ‘far off’ wrong.
