Ok I've just had a look at a machine, whacked in gpresult and the new policy is showing up. GPO applied successfully!!
So in short: Migrated proxy policy didn't work, created a new one with same settings, deleted the old one, computers work again...
My question is: WHHHYYYYY???!!!! Why do computers DO these things to us?

It would have just got itself in a tis, all those Proxy GPO's do is tweak registry keys - like the one I mentioned.

I'm glad creating a new GPO fixed it for you.
Remember for the future, some GPO's just don't work for whatever reason so deleting & recreating usually fixes things and is much less hassle. Another useful tip i find is to hit refresh a couple of times in Group Policy Management once you make changes to the GPO or change security permissions. This way the GPO should be applied straight away without the need for a gpupdate /force on machine or wait for replication
I have only just started to use AD / Group Policy myself but the above has happened 3 times to us, once with our printer server driver install GPO, a second with our staff drive mappings and a third time with proxy settings. The GPO i screenshot for you actually says our homepage shoud be google but its still our website, why im not sure because we dont have it specified anywhere. I'll probably just create a new GPO with that one setting in it instead

Looks like creating new ones is the way forward! Either that or we let computers take over the world and we just go and watch The Walking Dead.
