Almost definitely the braking issues appears to be a warped front disc.  Will investigate further tomorrow.
Don't rule out worn wishbone bushes, not dissimilar sensation.

Given the tramlining and the clunk I heard this morning I'm sure you could be right. Wish bones look fairly new, but could be nasty cheap chineese shite.
If they're not tightened correctly with the weight of the car on the wheels then they'll be bollaxed in pretty short order.

This applies regardless of whether they cost 30p or 300.

Only exception is if polybushes are fitted to the front mounting. :y

Just had a more thorough look at the service history and both wish bones are ebay specials fitted in March of this year.

Plus drop links and anti-roll bar bushes in the previous year or so

There also appears to be lots of receipts in the years before that, for wheel alignment.

I'm guessing that it's not braked in a straight line for some years.  >:(

I say that. But it does brake in a straight line if you let the wheel turn a little clock wise.  If you hold the wheel tight it pulls to the left.

Could be a sticking caliper :-\

But equally could be any number of things... from poor parts to poor fitting and crappy alignment.

Start with the brakes and go from there :y

Omegas aren't complicated,  but they are fussy :D
