Harrow Council: Out of touch, out of date, or just incompetent over 101?

harrow_council_broken

Struggling Harrow council makes a further fool of itself this weekend, and at the same time, also makes a mockery of the Met Police’s PR over the 101 non-emergency number, by telling residents that the current non-emergency number is 0300 123 1212. This  revelation comes on the back of an A4 tri-fold leaflet shoved through …
