I have a boss who really wants things to be done in a hurry; he’s almost a workaholic . . . at his age he is stronger than us the younger men; he’s demanding and it’s something that we all have to work to . . . you cannot relax; you have to keep going at it . . . it can be a challenge but it also helps us all know what is going on . . . the whole issue of wanting to deliver quickly but sometimes government doesn’t move as quickly as you do. I realized in government that if you want something in six months time you should say you want it in three months time".
