I'm guessing it either screws in like a standard vibrato unit, or possibly gets pushed in like some Ibanez.

Does the whammy bar have threading?
will someone carry me across ten thousand miles under the silence

Most just screw in so far? if it has a thread i mean, its meant to hang loose if thats what you are worried about.

you need a new bar and tap the bridge `cos it`s stripped the thread

any engineer or mechanic will be able to tap the bridge and will be cheaper than any guitar tech or new bridge, get the bar 1st and if it doesn`t go in then tap the bridge hole.

the bar shouldn`t cost more than a tenner...

the warranty on your guitar won`t cover user damage....but you could always argue it wasn`t your fault at the shop by lying to them..

skipton is close to leeds or bradford or ask one of the farmers they`ll have the tool to tap it..if they fix their own machinery....the tool is called a tap and die http://www.screwfix.com/prods/12080/Hand-Tools/Tap-Die-Sets/Carbon-Steel-Tap-Die-Set-16Pc but it`s pointless if you don`t know how to do it. do you have a metalwork shop at your school/college then maybe the lecturer can sort it.

it`s not the end of the world for your guitar it`s a 10 minute fix

like said the bar is cross threaded, which means the bridge is too.

if it's a less expensive guitar and you dont have access to the tools to thread it,
or the money to buy a new bridge. then just make sure the bridge is flush against the body, by adding springs in the back, and use it like a hardtail.

most intermediate trems only toss guitars out of tune anyway.

Screw it in. Mine looks exactly like that. It takes a while and there is a lot of resistance when you are screwing it in, but it will get there eventually.

i don`t think there`s any malice in the TS`s posts, plenty in yours though
