"Infamy, infamy, they've all got to in for me" Kenneth Williams as Julius Caesar in Carry On Cleo
Bad things happen to bad people. Throughout history, tyrants and despots have fallen, often in bloody and surprising ways. There was the defeated Roman Emperor used as a foot stool, the Afghan chief of defence fired from a cannon, and the Moroccan vizier chained to his dead brother in a dungeon. All were part of a rich tapestry of horror and macabre episodes. Yet even today there are still stories of woe and unpleasantness, and from Russia to Africa we recount some of the Beastly Ends of Beastly People.
So it Goes
