indeed it does sound like a barrel fault. remove the steering console and check there are no loose connections on the barrel. also, have you had the radio changed recently?
any problem like this can be put down to any componant that has a perminant and switched live through it shorting, thus giving power to the car constantly. if the engine dies when you remove the wire from the barrel, its the barrel, if it stays on, its most likely to be caused by the radio....remove the switched live off this....and so on!

After 2 weeks of checking just about every wire in the car, and not finding any loose connections or bare wires, the car has been put back together. To my surprise the lights on the dash that were previously on, werent, so i thought i'd try to start it and the car fired up first time, it also switched off when asked. I would like to tell you what I did to sort it, for future reference for other lag owners, but I'm not sure what cured it!! Many thanks to Chris M and Drummerboy for their input, I'd like to think it had some effect on the result
