I threw up a fresh 14.04 desktop vm and compared the sources.list, all of
the urls there are prepended with 'us', unlike the node that is not
prepended with anything.  I prepended gb to the problematic ones and it
pulled down fine.

Guess that explains it then Nate!

The normal apt mirror is still not working however, will check it again in
the morning.
