By Peter Rayner WITH regard to the debate about nuclear power, I clearly remember, back when the first nuclear power stations opened, the claim that electricity would be produced so cheaply it would be practically given away. It wasn't true then and it isn't true now. Peter Rayner Cambridge (c) 2008 Daily Mirror. Provided by ProQuest LLC. All rights Reserved.


Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
