Sir -- Frontloading. Noun. "The impending financial rape of a generally honest and decent section of a populus to pay for the criminal financial excesses of a Government and the banks, focussing in particular on increasing hardship for the poor, the sick, the defenceless and the so-called 'coping classes', who earn moderate incomes to pay grossly inflated mortgages while honestly trying to raise good families."
