A BT job or two for the locals?

BT has taken a lease on part of the Olympic Media Centre. Boris Johnson claimed 'hundreds' of jobs will be created, but elsewhere the Standard is a bit more precise. It says the agreement is for 300 jobs. So given that almost 5,000 jobs, which were done by local people, were moved out of the Park that means there are still some 4,700 or so to go before we are in positive territory. It is claimed that this is great for the local community and some of the jobs will be 'for local people'. I think we've heard that one before.
