I have got €250($350,£225)i play used to learn on an sx acoustic pack then i stopped learning and i am planning on learning again this time without going to lessons. I like Fat strats but i don't want one with a floyd rose as i know they are a pain to stay in tune. i have am amp already a tenson scream 15. Any ideas?

I am also into double cutaway les pauls i was looking at the LAG rm 100

Floyd Rose systems staqy in tune. Classic Strat systems don't stay so well as the strings are not locked. For a first electric, I'd say go for a non-trem system. There are quite a few decent hardtail guitars at your price.
Now, Usual stuff. What type of music?

Cort X-2 would be good. If you are in UK then also look at the Vintage V100 Les Pauls or their SG types. Best price at Dolphin Music but they don't export. I'd avoid LAG as they seem to be an ebay only brand so you can't try one out.
Then plan on a better amp as that one is not great.

Ugh, my cousin has a Cort X-2 and it's terrible in my opinion. Maybe it was his amp or something but still, I wouldn't suggest that guitar. It sounded either too muddy or too "thin". Yamaha Pacifica's are great for the price and they are very versatile. Also look at ibanez RG's (ones without the crappy Edge III trems) and Esp ltd's. Sorry don't know any double cutaway Les Pauls.

i found lags in waltons, and they look pretty nice and well built, i had a good look at them whilst i was in waltons earlier this month whilst my brother got an epiphone g-400. seeing as this is my first guitar i think i only need a basic amp to start off with, my brother said he would give it to me when he gets a roland cube 30x later this year or early next year.

les paul studios are nearly 1.5 times my budget so i can't afford one
