Abstract

As the recent Northern Ireland election showed, leadership titles are important and act as key signifiers of ability for many. Prior to the election there was considerable speculation over whether some in the North could bear to see the title of "First Minister" on the desk nameplate of a Sinn Féin representative. The truth is that this role is clearly defined as being part of a joint office. As one political pundit recently noted, "neither one can order paperclips for the office without the other one's agreement".
