i've charged the battery, even swapped another vw battery just to check it,tried jump/push start etc , but no joy whatsoever.

There is a possibility the immobiliser has lost its code from long term voltage drop.This can happen on version 3 immobiliser but i would expect the dash warning light would flash for none recognised key.You may require some fault codes and assitance
