I'm not against clipless pedals. I just did some research and determined that for me the Crank Brothers Eggbeater or Candy clipless pedals are better than the Shimano pedals that are OEM on the Cinder Cone.
I looked up the MSRP prices for both bikes:
2004 Cinder Cone MSRP: 700GBP
2005 Blast MSRP: 550 GBP
Given that, the brand new Blast looks like a decent discount (although inline with what is a normal North American price) and the Cinder Cone is selling at 50% which sounds fair.
Like it was stated, the Cinder Cone has better components and if the bike is in good shape and none of the good bits were removed I would go for the Cinder Cone. You have to also be sure that this bike fits you. Don't get a bike that doesn't fit you just because you get a good deal.
