noun - A contraction of preferential nepotism, also containing elements of the sense of fraternity and fraternisation. Used where friends are given a helping hand in work, social status, etc, in such a way and and to such an extent as to appear related and benefitting from nepotism, where in fact, they are old school/college/university colleagues, and this is the basis for their preferential treatment. See also the old boy network.
You're the best man for the job but I wouldn't want to show any prefratism.
