stitch-up
 n.— «Coun Dave Merrett, leader of the Labour group, said: “This is a complete stitch-up and I can’t believe they are trying to get away with it. “The Lib Dems are making sure that they get the answer they want about the future of York’s swimming pools by only asking those people who live near where they want it to be. How on earth can this be fair?» —“Pool survey ‘a stitch-up'” by Sam Southgate The Press (York, United Kingdom) Nov. 17, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
