    During a speech by Gordon Brown at a Labour Party event, 38-year-old Julian Borthwick was thrown out for heckling the prime minster.

    His concerns weren’t over taxes or crime, but instead over the infuriating matter of broadband speeds in the North West of England.

    Borthwick, an IT worker, told the BBC said he had gone to the National Glass Centre in Sunderland for lunch but “felt animated” when he heard the prime minister was there.

    Internet geeks. Ain’t nothing to mess with.
