Pour a few tablespoons of Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) down the spark plug hole into the cylinder. Leave it sit with the ATF in it for a few days. With the spark plug still removed, crank the engine over a few time to expel the ATF from the cylinder. Turn the key off, spray a light squirt of starting fluid or carb cleaner down the the spark plug hole into the cylinder and install spark plug. Try and start as you normally would.

Soaking the cylinder a few days with the ATF should dissolve any rust/corrosion that may have frozen the piston rings to the cylinder wall. If still will not crank over, then I would suspect the starter is corroded or bad. Of course it could also simply be a bad starter relay. To test this I would use a jumper wire from the battery positive side to to the starter side of the starter's relay. If the starter whirls to life, then this would confirm the relay needs replaced. If the starter still will not engage then you're back to either a bad starter or the piston being froze in the cylinder.

Safety switch to prevent starter actuation when in gear. Look for a switch along the shift lever somewhere.

If low performance was the original reason you took it to a repairer, it is clear they have failed to discharge their contract with you and you have grounds for complaint and to expect the repair completed for little or nothing extra.

There are a number of possible reasons why an engine that runs fine would be down on power and if the fuel system really needed that big clean out, it could still be fuel related. A carb and fuel system that was in a bad state often needs cleaning a couple of times, especially if water was a problem.

Other possibilities are a strangled intake, a strangled exhaust, low compressions especially due to bad intake valves or bad valve timing.
Another (unlikely) possibility is that of ignition timing which will likely be electronic with programmed advance characteristics. It is unlikely but it is possible the programme could be damaged leaving the ignition timing too retarded at speed to produce proper power.

It is also worth considering things like tyre pressures, binding brakes, wheel alignment...
