I managed to catch my cars problem on my phone whilst waiting at red lights. This problem used to be intermittent but is becoming more frequent....maybe due to cold weather. It does tend to be ok when car reaches temperature. I think this problem at idle also carries over to when im driving sometimes. When im moving off from 1st gear i sometimes have to rev more than usual to avoid the "kangaroo petrol" effect. Also in all other gears iv experienced the kangaroo effect as tho the power is cutting off and coming back on sporadically or someone is dabbing the brakes .

SOLUTION:
Ok thanks to everyone for responding with suggestions. It turns out that it was a dodgy Coolant Temperature Sensor. A very cheap solution to a very annoying problem. It was a green one but must just have been faulty. Drove buttery smooth after a quick change over. Hope this solves other peoples problems.
