The Seven Deadly Sins, as you may know, are: Lust, Wrath, Gluttony, Greed, Envy, Pride and Sloth.


As Gyles Brandreth found out, this list of sins has been around since the Middle Ages. Back then committing these sins resulted in punishments such as being put in frozen water and smothered in fire and brimstone.


But, in terms of guidance, are the seven deadly sins as relevant today as they were back then? 

 

We want to know which sins you think should be added to the list today.

 

Rudeness, perhaps, impatience or maybe insincerity? Or is it as simply bad customer service, people who talk too loudly on their mobile phone or eat smelly food in public places?


It's over to you - what should the modern deadly sins be? Let us know here.
