Patronizing News Anchor's Rant About Young People Sparks Discussion

Young people definitely get some interesting criticism in the news, like all the times Millennials have Killed an Industry, so this doesn't seem like much of a departure. In an interview on housing rights in Britain, a news anchor and landlord "reported" that young people don't have the skills to rent, since they don't know how to change lightbulbs or do basic tasks. This ruffled some feathers among young people and tenants.

If you aren't familiar with these cats, here's what you need to know: Larry is the Mouser in Chief at the Prime Minister's residence in the U.K. and Palmerston is the Foreign Office cat that lives next door. The two don't seem to like each other very much and British news outlets can't help but cover all of their cat-on-cat drama.

Larry and Palmerston had their worst fight yet the other night and the MiC had to make a visit to the vet. Hopefully they'll be able to settle their political differences soon, before they both get hurt.

The #CatsAgainstBrexit Hashtag Is Taking Over Twitter As the EU Referendum Approaches

If you aren't familiar with the historic Brexit vote that's about to take place, here's the gist: British voters will soon decide if they want the United Kingdom to remain in or leave the European Union. It's kind of a big deal, but who cares what humans think, right? The cats have spoken and they are very much against "the British exit".

These bros are dedicated.

After noticing that their buddy, 20-year-old Keiran Cable, had been missing ever since he started dating his girlfriend—they knew that something had to be done.

So the group of 50 footballers from Wales decided to do what any reasonable group of young men would do. They organized a fake funeral to say goodbye to their beloved friend.

The funeral took place at a local pub and included everything a good funeral must have: service leaflets, a coffin, funeral procession and time for friends to read their special memories.

"I was in complete shock and didn't know what to do or say. My cheeks were aching from smiling so much. The boys made a massive effort and it was definitely a day to remember," Cable said.

A 47-year-old British woman named Jacqueline Williams was arrested and charged with racially aggravated public order offense yesterday, only hours after the British Transportation Police issued a public appeal on YouTube to identify the female passenger who was seen hurling racist remarks at other train passengers in a recently upload video (shown left). It seems that the British law enforcement has taken a liking to crowd-sourced investigations, as yesterday's arrest marked the third case of racial abuse involving a viral transit fight video from this year.
