All part of the victim culture. Liars are hardly ever prosecuted when their fabricated stories are proved to be false
i think its more to do with how people will assume that the CPS are so incompetent, demonstrate poor judgement, and are incapable of serving the justice system. But then again we find that in almost all parts of the justice system, just ask anyone who fights the family court system.
Anyway, glad you came out of it okish, never mind your pocket. Which is why I believe every case thrown out for false accusations, poor preperations etc should be held on public record including the name of the decision maker( in the CPS) and how much the mistake cost the taxpayers ( nothing like losing money to help focus minds)
