Sorry for doing the Belgian Milkmaid fallacy or whatevs on you dude.  How about you replicate your Magic Consent Haxxoring powers by going down to your local nick and doing a line off the front desk?

A lot of people who have no love for the monarchy might feel differently if Britain was invaded and occupied by the Russians for several years.

Perhaps writing a character who's world view might be radically different to your own is a challenge. Pat Mills for all his faults strikes me as a writer who likes to challenge himself with different material. Bill Savage is different to Slaine, Nemesis, and Finn, as he was a human, had no super power or allegiance to Dark Gods but only the love of his country and a desire to free his land from Volgan aggressors. That set him apart for me with only Dan Dare being a similar character, but Dare had advanced science on his side. Bill had only his combat skills and shotgun to solve his problems, and the ordinary man against extraordinary odds will always provide real drama.

“Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”

Ronald Reagan, speech before the United Nations,
 1987 - Alan Moore fan?

If the authorities know that they cannot charge you without your consent, but they withhold that information from the public in order to retain control, how is that anything other than a conspiracy?

If no one knows about this conspiracy, but you do, and you came to reveal the conspiracy in the course of a police interview, how is that not your unearthing of a conspiracy?

If you are willfully refusing to accept the authority of the police, the court, the government and any legislation, and instead use foreign legal terms to frustrate the police and waste their time, then refuse to admit that you understand you are being charged and why, then that is by just about anyone's standards "being a bit of a dick". 

You didn't outsmart these people.  You didn't escape charge by refusing to believe they could charge you. They got sick of dealing with you, because taking you to court where you might have got a slap on the wrist for possession, wasn't worth their time.
