Hurrah! It is fixed at last!

After a morning of tearing my hair out trying to get to the starter motor i finally gave in and phoned the AA. The guy came and put his hand in the engine right where i had been fiddling about with the starter motor and then it started! He said there was corrosion between the contacts on the "Exciter"? wire to the solenoid/starter motor wassname. He also said it was very common on these clios along with the leaky sunroof etc etc. So we turned it off and he gave it a going over with some emery paper until i can get it done proper like.

All in all- a happy day! As long as i don't wake up tomorrow to a dead car i'll be happy, chiefly because the wife will be happy and then life is always easier.
