The last day of the financial year.
The last day for making sure that we maximise our potential for meeting targets, standards and delivery requirements.
The last day for encouraging staff to try to do that little bit extra to eke an extra percentage difference to the statistics.
The last day for making sure that i's are dotted and t's are crossed and the year is done and dusted and wrapped up in pink ribbon.
The last day for the whole of Policy Team except Mary to be on leave.
OK, OK, we perform better without them. It's the principle of the thing.
