MG MGF Technical - Battery Drain

I read with interest a discussion between Paul Hunt and Trevor Harvey on battery drain.

In his reply Paul says to "unplug the alternator,and if the drain drops to zero the alternator is suspect".
I did this and the voltmeter remained at 12.0 volts so I assume the alternator is o.k.

I then removed the fuse from the purple circuit as suggested and the drain dropped to approximately 1.45 volts. Paul did not mention what to check next if this occurred.

I would appreciate some feedback concerning this problem.
