Whatever happened to 'the Daily Show' with John Stewart?

I used to enjoy watching this on More4 at 8.30pm some weekday evenings. It dropped off my radar a few years ago when it was aired past my bedtime. :blush:

Has John Stewart finished doing this now or...

Agree totally.

The German model of long term rented housing as a vehicle for pension funds is certainly worth exploring. I would rather rent a home this way than some speculative landlord who could...

I certainly agree. Makes sense to 'recycle' buildings on brownfield sites before even contemplating building on fields.

And getting those empty homes back into use would be great. Sad to see film...

Absolutely. The Local Authority should compulsorily purchase these homes and auction them off post haste. Auctioned off on the condition that they are redeveloped for habitation of course.

In December 2009 I crashed my SEAT Ibiza, was sad to see it written off by the insurance company rather than repaired. Had owned the car for over 7 years and is my best car ownership experience to...

I know exactly what you were going through. I did this in 2005. I was quite bad at the job and was so glad to be 'let go'.

Best job is the one I had now. I work for the NHS and the more interesting...

Swifts are great cars. They are built in Hungary (iirc) not Japan but should still be very well built.

1.3 would be better for mainly town use, 1.5 for longer distance driving.

I consider myself a bit of a music buff but I really haven't a clue as to what was released as a single in 1985. :blush: But have mercy, I was 7/8 at the time. :D

I would love SB to do a new series of Property Ladder. Will be interesting to see what proportion of 'developers' make a profit compared to those featured in the early and mid 2000s. :D

Interesting show.

Have always liked computer games but I haven't owned a console since 1993 (SEGA Master System) and then a Commodore Amiga A600.

Tempted by a PS4 though. :)

Hmmm. In that case, it's only fair that if she has a council house she is made to hand the keys back in exchange for a 1 bedroom flat. She won't need all those bedrooms anymore.
