Sneak is quite often asked to provide a contact telephone number and, being a private sort of person, frequently Sneak would rather not. Unfortunately, telling people that you'd rather swallow a rancid haddock than hand over details of a jealously guarded direct line does tend to create awkward social situations. Fortunately, telecoms regulator Ofcom has come to the rescue, providing a list of legitimate-sounding UK numbers that don't actually lead anywhere. Admittedly, Ofcom has not created the list solely to solve Sneak's social problems: in fact the numbers are meant to be used for dramatic purposes. Sneak's editor did recently mention that things would have to improve "dramatically", so perhaps that counts. For more details, call Sneak direct on 020 7946 0727.
