    It is not a R35 protest, it is an IR35 protest.

    Here's the link:

    I bet it won't be covered on the main news, not the BBC anyway.

    You might be surprised - A lot of senior BBC bods also contract there through limited companies.

    After all, wasn't it the former BBC DG, John Birt, and his senior colleagues whose contract arrangement started the whole IR35 kerfuffle back in the 1990s?
    Work in the public sector? Read the IR35 FAQ here

    It certainly kicked up a fuss...

    Birt's promotion to Director-General in 1992 caused controversy when it was revealed he was employed on a freelance consultancy basis. Under political and public pressure, Birt became a BBC employee. He had to sell his shares in LWT, losing out on a windfall of what would have been several million pounds when it was bought by Granada in 1994. The Sunday Times later revealed that Birt had been a member of the Labour Party at the time of his appointment, a concern to Conservatives who had already expressed concerns about alleged left-wing bias at the organisation.
