Schrödinger's political thought experiment

The beleagured Scottish Labour Party, in an innovative thought experiment have today reshuffled their shadow cabinet.  Their new cabinet, along with a flask containing a poison, have been placed in the front benches at Holyrood shielded against environmental influences. When the poison was released the entire cabinet was both simultaneously alive and dead. Yet, when we see them on TV or from the public gallery, we see them either alive or dead, not a mixture of alive and dead. 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the new shadow cabinet members, who may or may not make a difference, depending on how you see them*:

  1. Des McNulty - Education
  2. Andy Kerr - Finance and the Economy
  3. Jackie Baillie - Health and Wellbeing
  4. Cathy Jamieson - Housing and Regeneration
  5. Michael McMahon - Local Government
  6. John Park - No Portfolio (Elections and Campaigns)???

* Personally I see them as dead...
