Probably so. I guess I should have said "USian ignorance". Every time I think I understand Parliamentary systems there's another term I've never heard. In the US they usually say "the ranking on the blah-blah committee", but since your legislative and executive powers are more closely intertwined I guess the idea of "shadow ministers" makes more sense.

Damn... I forgot LJ doesn't display stuff inside triangle brackets that should be "the ranking [party not in power] on the blah-blah committee"
