Thumbs up Eureka!!

Rather than complete a whole circuit myself I have just fed a power cable direct from the battery through a 20amp in-line fuse (and an independant switch for piece of mind) to the blower motor with all the other gubbings still attached.

The end result is that my blower motor works as it should do, I can lower and raise the speed using the dash controls as per normal.

This has at least given me some breathing space to find the money to get a proper fix. The proper fix, should also be quite a bit cheaper in the long run as I have identified the problem as an obvious break in the original power cable.

I can now awake in the frosty mornings and not worry about driving to work not being able to clear the windscreen anywhere near good enough.

Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
