Local Government, why oh why

As soon as I received my Council (property) tax bill, I tried to setup monthly payments from my current (checking) account. 

But the wonderful Harrow Council decided that they knew more about the UK banking system than the UK banks and refused to accept the sort code (routing number) of my bank and told me to ring the council.

As of 9:58 am on Friday June 26th, I’ve been listening to a portion of Handel’s water music for 30 minutes and 15 seconds waiting to speak to a live person. I like Handel’s water music but now every time I hear it, I’ll be thinking of this call.
