It's cold outside - and inside too!

UKTenantFilter: My heating broke on friday at 2pm. The landlord turned up at 4 but didn't fix it then because he 'wanted daylight to work on it'. Today (saturday) he said it couldn't be fixed because it needed a new fuse and 'nowhere that was open had one' - so we have to wait until Monday.

There are 4 students in the house. Currently there is one heated room, the lounge has an electric fire, but no central heating or hot water (including shower). We've been told they can lend us a portable heater but we have to share it because they only have one.
Are we being treated unreasonably? What should/can we do?
(note: I strongly suspect the landlord does not have plumbing qualifications but I don't know this for certain. He didn't seem to be very sure about what he was doing when looking at the boiler)
