After about three weeks of English legal system hell and about halfway through what I believe was some sort of preliminary hearing, the Crown dropped the charges. Seems their star witnesses were nowhere to be found.
So your problem wasn't with the courts at all then, it was with the CPS. I will happily agree that the CPS are extremely bad and should shoulder much of the blame that the courts and judges get.
As an example, the recent case of the guy finding the shotgun, the court was exactly right to convict the guy, as it was correct in law. However the CPS should never have brought the case in the first place. They are supposed to only bring cases that are in the public interest, but they seem to forget that a lot of the time.
