I agree with both Bloggo and TDH but the point of my question was:- if the majority of people want change to bring the law back on the side of the victim why does it not happen?

Is the "Liberal Lobby" that powerful?

It is to do with the whole ethos of British law, in other words, there are no guilty people until it is proven. You are not guilty of anything until the end of a trial. I think the law is largely correct. The problem seems that it appears inconsistent sometimes. It is not helped by sensationalist reporting by the right-wing press.

Yes, I think it probably is.
What each of us has to do is complain to the Police, The Council and your MP every time we see a miscarriage of how we see the justice system should be working and demand that there is a change.
The forthcoming election is a great opportunity to let anyone in authority that asks for your opinion to make sure you tell them what is wrong with the system.
