This interview with the gay news website begins with Heath's views on the new incitement to homophobic hatred law. But it also takes in wider Lib Dem policy and prospects.
As Lib Dem spokesperson on Justice, David Heath is a comforting contrast to the Cleggs and Huhnes of the party.
Big, bearded, thoughtful yet jocular, the 53-year-old is a substantial politician in more ways than one, and in his present role he shadows one of the remaining big beasts of the Labour
party, Jack Straw.
Well worth a look.
