I DID mis-read your post, sorry,

agreed...the jumping sounds like either an earthing problem or poorly gapped/damaged spark plugs, would defo lean towards the earthing problem too though.

With poorly gapped spark plugs the car may well drive OK just tootling around, then just barely fire when you try to accelerate a bit more, the engine is fine one minute, then just goes GNNNNNNNN, then away it goes as if nothing's wrong. It's black magic how it sometimes does, sometimes doesn't.... beats me.
