Try booting a Live CD/USB, mount your install partition and edit
$mount_point/etc/default/keyboard
      Code:

# If you change any of the following variables and HAL and X are
# configured to use this file, then the changes will become visible to
# X only if HAL is restarted.  In Debian you need to run
# /etc/init.d/hal restart

# The following variables describe your keyboard and can have the same
# values as the XkbModel, XkbLayout, XkbVariant and XkbOptions options
# in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

XKBMODEL="logicd"
XKBLAYOUT="gb"  # <<<<--- there it is, here: gb for british keyboard
XKBVARIANT="extd"
XKBOPTIONS="lv3:ralt_switch,compose:lwin,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"

# If you don't want to use the XKB layout on the console, you can
# specify an alternative keymap.  Make sure it will be accessible
# before /usr is mounted.
# KMAP=/etc/console-setup/defkeymap.kmap.gz

should enable him to log in again and to sort stuff from a root console. Wink I guess there is no boot code like 'keyb=gb' ?
