How old is the battery? Usually when a car battery loses all its charge, it won't ever recover to its previous potential. It's very possible your battery is reading 12+ volts, but cannot deliver the current needed.

Get some jump leads on there and try starting. It will tell you straight away whether its the battery.

get a jump from another car not a stupid car charger. Next time you leave you car idle for that length of time, disconnect your battery.
