London, Feb 22 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A university newspaper claims that it has the perfect guide that would make help students shoplift without being caught.

As should be expected, the move by the newspaper is not so pleasing to some retailers who claim that the move would result in unnecessary loss to them. That is the least of the concerns of the student activists from Queen Mary College of the University of London that came out with the how-to guide.

The guide is meant to help cash strapped students who need to survive. The guide teaches students techniques on how to avoid being captured by the CCTV when they shoplift. It also encourages students to lie to officers when they are caught.

The guide was published in the student newspaper “The Paper”.

Some legal experts say that the people behind the publication of the material could be arrested and prosecuted. The spokesman for the consortium that oversea the welfare retail shops in the United Kingdom said that the publication wasn’t funny enough.

Andrew Dodd said that, “This guide is extremely irresponsible, if not illegal. Everyone involved in it should be ashamed of themselves for encouraging people to steal from shops.”
