    OK, when the final judgement calls, in whatever form you believe in, how will history judge people?

    Who, for example, will be viewed as so evil that the Devil would have put them in the "naughty corner" of hell?

    I'll start you off with Adolf Hitler and Robert Maxwell.

    They're always from hell (apparently!)

    Margaret Thatcher.

    Did more damage to this country than Hitler ever did.

    Would the naughty corner of hell be for the good people though? Surely the worst of the worst would be in power... the equivalent of the government.... Hmmm..... Maybe we are there already!

    Ahh, a man after my own heart. Looking at the frail old dear now it's hard to believe that she was responsible for such polarisation and degradation of society. As a young socialist I hated her, or rather what she represented, with an almost insane passion. Sadly, I suspect that she really believed that what she was doing was in the best interests of the nation and, much as I would love to, could I really damn someone for being so passionately misguided?
    Nazis are a given. Stalin should certainly be a recipient of the red hot poker treatment. There are a host of former dictators who should be prepared for a shafting but my prime candidate for the wrath of Old Nick would be Robert Mugabe.

    OK, I've had cider, so excuse if this doesn't make sense...

    Surely the naughty corner of hell should be reserved for those who *know* they are doing evil? In ways, people you have mentioned (Hitler, Maggie T, and to some extent, child abusers) may have, on some level believed what they were doing was right. I mean, hell, we know that (I'm thinking back to child abusers in particular now) what they are doing is wrong and evil, and, to be honest, there is part of me that wants to chop off parts of their anatomy and glued to their forehead so everyone knows what they did (delete that sentence if necessary mods), but, I think deep down inside somewhere, maybe some genuinely believe that nothing was wrong with it. Shouldn't this be considered mental illness as opposed to evil?

    Anyone else fancy a game of devil's advocate?

    No-one has put forth any Murderers or Rapists.

    Robert Maxwell? Why him? Robert Mugabe certainly, Hitler without doubt. All terrorists, mass murderers and paedophiles.

    But Maggie was the best Prime Minister since Churchill and it's taken this long for Labour to ruin the economy that she and her government left behind.

    We're getting a bit morbid on this site with all this talk of hell aren't we?!?!

    I agree with the above

    Sorry but I totally disagree.

    Mark my words, in vast swathes of this country, there will be celebratory street parties when the old witch dies, in fact I might organise one myself.

    Seeing as Six Pints brought up the subject of mental illness, I nominate the said DAME !! as a prime candidate.

    Instead of celebrating the demise of an ex PM he ought to worry about the sad state of affairs that we have fallen into under the current excuse for a government!

    Myra Hindley and Ian Brady weren't particularly nice people

    this has the danger of turning into a thoroughly unpleasant thread. Too many politcal chips-on-shoulders being thrown around.

    Who would I send to hell..? Too long a list, and none of them western politicians. ( Though Ken Livingstone would be getting pretty close ) :D

    Not only did he have the audacity to rob around 3/4 million people of their pension funds, he had the nerve to make a very convincing video in which he personally urged his staff to join his Pension scheme as it was far safer than the Government's - about 18 months after he knew his empire was in deep trouble and was already embezzling from the fund.

    On what do you base your seconding? Obviously not personal experience.

    I'll throw in Tony Blair. Complete egomaniac that finally sold this country out to the EU for his own personal ambition to become president of Europe. I hope it never happens.

    why hitler without doubt? people seem to forget all the good stuff he did, and you're only being evil if you believe what you're doing is evil and i really don't think he did. I think in his head he was helping the world and if it's the thought that counts then i'd say he was ok...
