I think I've made a bit of a break through with this.

If you move the files from /usr/share/applications to somewhere safe (I've
stored them in a dir in /root) and then do a /usr/sbin/gdm-safe-restart they
vanish from the menu.

It's not brilliant but it's a start !! I wish there was a nice graphical way
of doing this
