That's not the only reason, I just think that law, like medicine is one of those subjects that you really have to have your heart set on- and not just do for the sake of it.
In terms of 2010 - I'm narrowing myself down to courses relating to either English, Geography or politics w/ econ. But then there's philosophy etc, which also attracts me. I just enjoy too many subjects!
As I say, the dream really is to do post grad and become a lecturer.
Although my dreams are subject to hourly change (N)
Forget about the postgrad/lecturere dream for now. You haven't even decided on an undergraduate degree yet so it's very premature to be thinking about those although it's good that you already have it thought out.
You are right that law and medicine are degrees that you actually want to do but then again so are many other degrees.
Are you applying for 2010 entry?
So for now the subjects which interest you are English, Geography, Politics, Economics and Philosophy but you're finding it hard to choose between any of them?
I think you should spend some time reading around those subjects to get a "feel" of which you'd prefer. Of course it's completely up to you but it might be a good idea.
Take a look at the different forums for your chosen subjects to get more advice.

I enjoy economics and politics related word but obviously the maths has let me down and economics alone is not a viable option anymore.
I also really enjoy Geography- but can't help thinking this is more down to staff that subject matter.
I'm naturally good at English (I should be able to crank it upto an A next year) and enjoy aspects of the course.
I wouldn't say the maths has let you down, at least until you do actually get your results and even then there are economics BA degrees which may interest you.
If you do enjoy politics then the maths hasn't affected you so use the politics forum for more information regarding a politics degree.
Regarding geography, if you think it's entirely down to staff as opposed to subject matter then read some books which aim to introduce you to studying geography at university and see if the course interests you.
I'm not sure being naturally good at English AS is enough grounds to pick it as a degree but that's up to you.
Aspects of the course at AS may have no relation to the course at university so take a look at some of the course outlines for English at different universities and see what interests you. You really should do this for all the degrees you're interested in.
