On a lot of these small engines, the blade also acts as a kind of flywheel to help smooth out the power stoke from the engine.
result? no blade, or blade very loose, engine can be a right pain to start.
I'm not very familiar with the very new mountfields, but it sounds like a standard briggs engine.
If you follow the cable down from the dead mans handle, it will normally end somewhere on the side of the engine. When you pull the handle in, it pulls back a lever that frees a brake shoe, or sometimes a band, that acts against the flywheel. this mechnism stops the engine a bit quicker than wiothout it. it should also act on a small switch in the same area.
I often find that the switch isn't turning working as it should, and needs a gentle adjustment with a pair of pliers.
have a look at this first, but please tighten that blade up for safetys sake!!!!!!

Cant get my mountfield lawn mower started, it is petrol and i have primed it by pressing the pump button as per the instructions on the mower. there doesnt seem to be any resistance when i pull the start...

make sure there is a spark plug in. that would be 1 reason why there is no resistance when you pull the cord. if there is a spark plug in then check to see if there is a clunking sound when you pull the cord if this is the case then the engine has a broken conecting rod..good luck
