Reason I ask is I purchased a Lidl haggis a few weeks ago that I froze as soon as I got home and the store was under 10 minutes walk from house.

The product had an expiry date of over 4 weeks later.

I took it out of the freezer like 2 weeks ago though but wanst sure how it works, may sound silly.

So do I keep it to its original expiry date and no longer or does it only last say a week or less after defrosting even if it would of lasted longer if it wasnt frozen?

you can keep things frozen for months after their expiry dates, but once its defrosted you'll need to eat it within a day or two I would have thought

I'd say if it still had 2 weeks when frozen then it should last 2 weeks when defrosted (in a fridge) although surely by defrosting it you are planning to use it anyway?

It hasnt been cooked yet though thats why its more confusing, the product is still in its wrapper.

+1, once you interfere with its storage you should eat within 2 days of defrosting irrelevant of its useby date

I did but never got round to it, originally defrosted it as was going away for the day and was planning to eat it when I came back the following day but then changed mind.

And have been away like 2-4 days a week for last 2 weeks so not much chance to eat it.

If you have ever suffered from food poison - you wouldnt even consider the risk here!!! chuck it in the bin - and in future if you defrost something, cook and use by next day

Not if you let my Mrs cook it - no chance of food poisoning, I reckon she used to operate a crematorium oven in her last life. Its why I do the cooking in our house!
