This morning after getting in the car the inside of the windscreen would not clear, tried everything I could think of but I could not clear the screen. Please help.

What demisting selections had you made and what  was the outside temperature?

Have you pressed the front screen  demist button? This Automatically  sets everything to the optimum setting  - heat, maximum fan, air conditioning  on (for dehumidifying) and the most suitable vents.  Its a bit noisier than normal,and maybe not the most fuel efficient setting  but it works for me. Better than fiddling around trying to find the best  settings individually.
Sorry if its too long winded. I failed my brevity exam at school. Ran out of paper.

I needed the car early today. The outside temp was 2C. The windscreen was frosty. I started the car and pressed the demist button and the heated rear window and mirrors button. Within 4 minutes the car was clear.

So what was (is?) it, on the inside of your windscreen
Stay on the right side of the road (I mean here, mainland Europe, the RIGHT side).

I've had this once and it took an absolute age to clear with the front screen demist button on. I'm talking 10 minutes minimum here. In the other Hondas I've owned it took a couple of minutes usually.

I've only had this on one occasion though. Bloody annoying but I wonder if it's a quirk of this particular model. I should add that the screen was frozen on the outside although I had scraped this off.

What was coming out of the vents?  Cold air?  Warm air?  Nothing at all?

I reckon it's from your own breath. Don't breath while in the car and you'll have no more trouble.   :D

Seriously though, if you open the windows while demisting it does help to dry the interior air.

I've found on the Jazz I need a microfibre cloth to wipe the inside of the windscreen first thing.

The air alone isn't enough to shift heavy interior mist on the windscreen, but after wiping a lot of it up with the cloth the air can clear the rest ok.

I think the big windscreen and angle of it in the Jazz might mean it's more likely to suffer interior mist.

Maybe try cleaning the inside of the windshield thoroughly today and see what happens tomorrow...
