Who runs the legal system? Is there a head person in the UK who always runs the legal system? How does the legal system operate? What are the reasons for the legal system to be in place in the UK? Is there a person in UK who goes through all the UK Laws and decides on which laws to keep and which laws to discard?

I suppose ultimately the Home Secretary is responsible.
I'm not sure what you mean by how the legal system operates?
The reason we use law is that it is generally thought better than the state of nature where we all behave in a lawless way and only the very fittest would survive.
Parliament makes law. In principle it is scrutinised by Committees in the Commons and the readings in the House of Lord although you would never notice it.
Can I clarify anything for you?
