English term or phrase: Great efficiency drive
Un informateur dit au chef des services secrets qu'il sait qui sont les responsables d'un attentat qui a eu lieu contre une ambassade britannique en Afrique plusieurs années auparavant. Il précise qu'il s'agit de terroristes britanniques. Mais il ne révélera leur identité qu'en échange d'un demi-million de livres. Le chef des services secrets doit donc aller voir le ministre de l'Intérieur pour tenter d'obtenir la somme.
Le chef des services secrets dit : Now I go the Home Secretary with a begging bowl. Although given the Great Efficiency Drive, half a million pounds to expose a national disgrace might be a hard sell.

Comment traduirez-vous "given the great efficiency drive" ?
