Heckler Dragged Out At Labour Campaign Event

Julian Borthwick, 38, was dragged out of a Labour campaign event for heckling Gordon Brown.

He derailed the event by shouting “we’re broke” and “what about that bigoted woman?”.

Mr Brown responded by saying that there would be “plenty of time” to ask questions afterwards.

The Oxford law graduate said he was protesting the Prime Minister’s refusal to meet “real people”.

In a statement he said “Real politicians are going around talking to real people and Mr Brown isn’t doing that.

“Mr Brown needs to see real electors, not just hand-picked people.

“This election campaign has been characterised by controlled spin and controlled meetings where you don’t actually see real people.

“What made it come alive was Gillian Duffy.

“This is what happens if you bump into the Prime Minister, you get walked off the premises.”
