I've never checked mine specifically, but is a focus DBW or cable?

If its a cable, check its not frayed and flowing freely, also check for slack

Have something to contribute?

I think i figured it out: there is nothing wrong with the car to start with. What I thought was wrong with the car was the drive by wire system on board. I have never driven a drive by wire vehicle before. I have been googling DBW extensively and there is always a delay or lag that is associated with the system whatever the make or model.
Thanks to everybody who pointed me in this particular direction

No problem. I knew it would be, it takes some getting used to!
