[mod_python] urlopen permissions

I'm not convinced that this is a specific mod_python problem but I'm not
sure exactly how to explain it in generic terms so hopefully someone here
can point me in the right direction.
I have a python script which calls urllib2.urlopen to open a url on a remote
server (google). It works fine from the command line but when I run it from
a mod_python.psp page I get:

HTTPError: HTTP Error 403: Forbidden

Clearly this is something to do with the permissions of the apache user vs
my shell user but what is the safest way to allow this script to run?
