TIP Multiple choice

TIP Multiple choice questions can be tricky. You’ve learnt some tips and tricks about them, remember? If necessary, check out task 60 for recap. 89 MC-questions Read the text below and answer the questions. On your Bike 1. Suffolk Police have been criticised for their plans to give stolen bikes to criminals for free. The idea is to help former offenders go out and look for work. Lost or stolen bikes that have not been claimed by their owners are normally sold by the police. And a bike that can be traced back to its owner will be returned. Police spokesperson Victoria Woods defends the plan by saying: “Finding employment can have a positive influence on people trying to make a new start. If people have no independent transport they cannot get a permanent job very easily.” 2. But critics say the idea is an insult to crime victims. Fiona McEvoy of the Taxpayers’ Alliance says: “This absurd plan just makes bike theft a legal thing. Suffolk Police could even be handing the bike to the very person who stole it, which would be like giving a reward to thieves.” 3. Cyclist Dave Brady, 29, who always keeps his £3,000 mountain bike in his living room, says: “It is a ridiculous plan. Innocent people who have lost their bikes never had any compensation. Why should those who chose to lead a life of crime get extra help? Let them walk instead!” Comments by email: Why not give them stolen cars which have not been registered to an owner? Maybe they could set up Taxi Firms. posted by Streetfire Suffolk Police …what’s wrong with them? Are they out of their minds? What’s the name of the person who came up with the idea. I’d like to speak to him. posted by David French I have worked on a few projects where the police donate stolen and abandoned bicycles that have been lying around police stations. The young lads learn how to repair them and it gives them a good feeling. If they complete the course they get to ride one of the bikes they repair at home. posted by Padshorts I thought handling stolen property was an offence! If a thief steals a bike and gets caught, do the police give it to him or do they keep it for him till he gets out? Do we really pay these people to have these silly ideas? posted by Kiran It would be interesting to find out, six months from now, how many of the criminals presented with a bike have actually found a job. And if they still have the bike. I doubt it. posted by Georgie A. Wat is de kritiek op de politie van Suffolk? (alinea 1) a. Ze doen geen moeite gestolen fietsen op te sporen. b.
