Is the fuel pump priming? Put the car into ignition and listen for an electric pump noise coming from the boot. If ti is "whirring" it is priming.

Check you have ignition. Could be coil, TFI module or dizzy.

All I can't think off right now

yeah i had it stuck in traffic so i tryed to wind it over then my battery must be on its way out because it wound for about only 30 seconds then it slowed down so my next move was to get a mate with jump leads or a charged battery to check the coils for spark and the fuel pump, the fuel pumps only 12 mnths old although they always stuff up,
