I agree with your call - David is the most credible of the three for the role of deputy leader. He was outstanding on the terrorism bill. Can't wait to see him stand in at PMQs!

(But if he wins I suppose we had better be ready for beard & sandals jokes)

No female candidates? I'm disappointed. I hoped that Susan Kramer would stand.

David Heath - stunning on the Terrorism Bill. I hope he gets the job.

Rob F, I'm sure that Vincent Cable is as credible candidate as David Heath. But on the other hand Cable already has a prominent role in the front bench.

For the benefit of those of us who haven't noticed David Heath much (and I don't recall seeing much of him at all during the bloodbath and leadership election of the last two months) could you tell us some more about him?
