This usually would not matter but the chap in question applies strength over technique, forcing uke into position rather than allowing you to gett he hang of anything, which is frustrating and counterproductive in my opinion (but i am new)
It is expected, that the beginners apply strength over technique. They can't do any better; it takes many years to learn correct technique. You too, you are applying a lot of strength. That is very good, keep going.

Should i try a new club? is there a lesson in this somewhere that im missing? do you have any advice with dealing with a unhelpful aggressive Uke?

thanks in advance
You are over sensitive. Aggressive uke doesn't exist in aikido dojo. Just keep training as usual.
