A theologico-literary parlour game

Via Calling England, I come across this table showing the various circles of Hell, as described in Dante's Divine Comedy:
With regard to the late, lamentable labour leadership, Gordon Brown will surely be sent to the 5th Circle, where he can sulk to his heart's desire, and Blair should, in deference for his greater crimes, progress down the 9th Circle, where the lake of ice may cure his vainglory after, say, 10,000 years or so. Prescott; take your pick, but the gluttonous 3rd Circle seems appropriate. But what about Mandelson? Where should he reside?
