Government ministers

It is rare these days that I get into a political debate, and when I do I am made painfully aware that I am lacking the fundamentals like; who is the shadow treasurer? (Wayne Swan)

If you are like me and wish to rectify this omission in my political repertoire here is a complete list of the Australian ministers and shadow minister.
