"People get away with skipping bail all the time,"
Actually, that is false. There are two situations with bail. The first; where a person is required to return to the court to have their bail conditions adjusted so that they adhered to it. However, if the individual does not show up to court without a valid reason they will be imprisoned. The second; where a person is imprisoned for merely violating bail conditions. The latter is the case in the UK. Assange not showing up to court when requested is the reason he will be punished, not for violating his bail condition.
