I don't think it's anything to do with them being unorganised. Criminal cases can be complex.

Remember to tell us what happens, and also remember, if he LOOKS guilty, he probably is.

i just thought if the cases were ready for court and people had been cited there case would go ahead i dont think they should be allowed to change there plea at the last minute just ignore me im just fed up after sitting bored all day

They are pretty organised - if you figure some cases will finish and others begin, they have to have an overlap of potential jurors and also jurors can be objected to etc etc.

I did Jury Service last Christmas - was able to catch up on loads of work in a quiet corner and they even had a pool table and a plasma screen.

Far cheaper than having 50 barristers, judges, police etc sitting doing nothing because there are not folks ready to form a Jury.
