From what you posted, I pictured something like this.

So basically, you want to use a cabinet as the pedestal?

comment Most bang for buck approach to insulating home
Sometimes energy companies (gas, electric, etc.) and/or governments will offer a rebate, or outright pay for an energy audit (some conditions may apply). So it might be worth asking your energy companies about it.

Also... You'll have an exposed splice with no strain relief, which sounds dangerous.

Nobody in the UK uses wire nuts (twist-on wire connectors). They think they're crap, and cause wires to spontaneously combust or something.

I think in the UK you guys typically use terminal blocks, right? Why do you think they are not applicable to this situation?

comment How do I remove the dome of this light fixture?
Have you tried loosening the screws (using an offset screw driver might work), to see if the tabs move when the screws are loosened?

comment Bathroom fan/light switch with outlet
I can't tell from the photos how the switch connects to the light/fan. You should investigate how the two wires coming out of the top of the device are connected. It looks like one connects to the incoming feed and a pigtail to the receptacle, but I can't really see how the other one is connected. I do see a hint of a red wire in the back of the box, so there is hope that there's a separate wire for the light and the fan.
