THE recent news of the alleged exploitation of Polish workers at Stansted Airport raises a very interesting point.

For months BAA Stansted has insisted that expansion of the airport would be good for the economy and good for local jobs.

I know they say that air travel makes the world a smaller place but since when has Poland been considered local?

Only a few weeks ago we heard on the news that BAA was having trouble finding staff to fill 160 security posts at Stansted and were "having to look further afield as there is very little unemployment in the area".

Stansted expansion good for local jobs? Not likely!
