In Writer after right clicking and replace image... I go to format image and select original ratio and I get no joy. How can I get the image to the correct ratio after replacing an image?

Seems selecting in crop "Keep image size" instead of "Keep scale" does the job:

Thanks that works very well for me... although very counter intuitive. Would you consider this a bug? should I file a report?

Yes you can :) report and wait for a developer who likes to work in it. Have you thought about a more intuitive way?

Perhaps both an Original Size and and Original Ratio button would be prudent?

I think you know the address to report: , mark it as enhancement.
