Plugging in

An interesting addition to the Open Dictionary this week is range anxiety. As the Government tries to encourage us all to consider using electric cars, instead of the traditional internal-combustion engine, this is something that’s likely to become increasingly common. Finding a petrol station is bad enough when you know you’re running out, but trying to find one of these mythical car-charging points would be a lot worse. Presumably it won’t be long before we see range rage, where people actually run out of power and vent their frustration at smug non-electric car drivers!
