French term or phrase:au-delà de l'ardoise
This sounds like the title of a romance novel, but no, it appears in an article in today's L'Express online about the Executive Life case, which I keep referring to as if you all know about it (sorry about that!), but anyway, the wording is:
"Finalement, ce n'est qu'à l'été 2002 que le pouvoir a pris la mesure du risque. Et pour aboutir à quel résultat? Au-delà de l'ardoise, l'accord, finalisé en début de semaine et annoncé à grands coups de trompe, laisse planer un vrai malaise."
